New Dove Men+Care products fortify & style men’s skin and hair from the neck up

Innovative products offer added resilience to his daily grooming routine.

Englewood Cliffs, NJ (May 5, 2015) – Dove Men+Care, a Unilever men’s personal care brand has new face and hair solutions to help guys look and feel their best every day. Overall, 59 percent of American men say personal care products boost their confidence1 and it all starts with their grooming regimen. Now, Dove Men+Care debuts seven new innovations developed to deliver resilience for men’s skin and hair.

“Men’s grooming is among the fastest growing segments of Personal Care,” said Rob Candelino, Vice President of Marketing, Unilever. “As American men continue to evolve in their grooming choices and routines, Unilever will continue to offer them products that help them look and feel their very best. Dove Men+Care is the fastest growing brand in men’s grooming because we offer high quality products and we speak with our guys about grooming in a genuine and highly relatable way.”

This marks the brand’s first foray into hair styling products and a continued emphasis on strengthening formulas, like Oxygen Charge shampoo, formulated with Oxycharge technology. New Face Range products include a series of rich lather shave creams, as well as a new ultra-hydrating cream that offers superior moisturization for 24 hours. All are available nationwide at drug stores, food stores and mass merchandisers this month.

“The majority of guys say they like their grooming routine to be as simple as possible2 ,” says stylist and men’s groomer Jason Schneidman. “The styling products are an easy way for him to step up his style game—with the added benefit of strengthening formulas. The new Fortifying Styling Paste is something I can rely on to make my clients look great.”

“We know that men are not caring for their faces – in fact, almost half of U.S. men don’t use face wash or a face moisturizer,” says make-up artist and groomer Karen Lynn Accattato. “That’s why the new Dove Men+Care face products are an easy, effective way men can care for their skin.”
