Why Bulldog Skincare is good for your face and the planet

When it comes to skincare targeted specifically at men, there are many, yes, but are they good enough?

Putting them to the test over many years, you can unequivocally agree that ‘no’, most aren’t, but when you find one that’s worth barking about, you want to make it known.

Bulldog Skincare is just that.

Sure, it might be sold in a supermarket, but it’s accessible, easy, affordable and does the job without any of the bell ‘n’ whistles of the same products that cost hundreds.

Founded by a guy with a dream, Simon Duffy, the Bulldog Skincare name was born and has gone from strength-to-strength, expanding its offering and improving its range to cater for people from all walks.

“The idea for Bulldog Skincare For Men was born whilst I was shopping for skincare products for my wife. I was buying some of her favourite products when I noticed that there were no straightforward skincare options for men which contained natural ingredients. After thorough research and development, Bulldog Skincare For Men launched in the UK in 2007,” said Simon.

It’s been a long road since then, but one that he’s adamant will always allow the products to stand out from the rest for a few reason:

  1. Bulldog’s products have been purpose built for men and aren’t just a men’s version of what was initially a woman’s product.
  2. Their formulations are highly effective and use natural ingredients. It’s the combination of these two elements that men love.
  3. Men are interested in more natural formulas; however male skincare users are even more motivated by performance and results. It’s been crucial for Bulldog to really deliver to men’s needs, and
  4. Their success in doing this has helped the brand to grow through word-of-mouth recommendations.

Couple that with the fact Bulldog is a ‘man’s best friend’, it’s a memorable brand that people want a lot to do with. He’s highly-memorable, masculine, approachable, and brings personality to a market that takes itself too seriously and follows female beauty rules too closely.

And when it comes to just why a bulldog, exactly; well, Simon loves them. And so does his partner.

He concedes they mightn’t be the prettiest breed, but they have many great attributes such a loyalty, tenacity and kindness: all aspiration components for the role they want their brand to play for people that use their products.

Simon and the Bulldog brand are passionate about the earth, to-boot. He touts the fact that all brands should 100% be on-board when it comes to being ethical and sustainable (you can read more about how you can do your part on Banish.com.au) and that focusing on environmental friendliness is the way to go.

“The focus on being environmentally friendly is even more important now than ever before. Consumers are increasingly demanding in this area, which is a good thing.

From Bulldog’s perspective, it’s been in our DNA since day 1. You can this in the decisions that went into our very first range of products, for example to never use microbeads and to be a vegan brand, amongst other things.

More recently we have become the first men’s skincare brand in the world to use sugarcane as a renewable raw material to produce our plastic tubes, which is a much better alternative for the world than the traditional production model that consumes fossil fuels. While Bulldog’s process takes carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere, the conventional process pollutes it in.”

Seems like they’re doing their part in addition to using only natural ingredients, and effective formulations.
