A new men’s skincare brand – OTIS SKINCARE – based in Paris.
Clean, effective, anti-aging products have been specifically developed for a man’s skin.

OTIS produce Daily Face Wash, a Protective Shave Cream and a Hydrating Daily Moisturizer. All three products are designed to be travel ready.
They have had excellent customer feedback on all three products. Men love them! Mainly because they can see the results of using excellent skincare.

The differences between a man’s and a woman’s skin are small, but they are of paramount importance to the best way to care for a man’s skin. It began a few years ago when our founder, Sandra Scott-Allen, an englishwoman based in Paris, read an article in the press about the terrible things shaving could do to a man’s skin – causing dryness, irritation, and ingrown hairs – as well as the presence of unneccessary chemicals in shaving foams. For her it was a revelation! As a woman, it was something that she had never considered before. From this she decided to create a brand of “men-friendly” skincare, tailored completely to suit men – their skin, their needs, and their way of life.

After gathering a maximum of information about male beauty, reading numerous articles, consulting dermatol-ogists, and most especially discussing the subject with men around her, she came to the following conclusion: the most important to men is that their skincare is simple, quick to use and, above all, effective! She recruited renowned Parisian laboratory (Laboratoire BF) to combine the best natural ingredients and technologies to optimally fulfil the needs of men’s skin. No superfluous formulas and no compromise on quality, just a carefully selected list of active ingredients. From this OTIS SKINCARE was born with 3 essential products for a man’s daily skincare routine: a Daily Face Wash, a Protective Shave Cream and a Hydrating Daily Moisturiser

OTIS SKINCARE started from the belief that a man’s skin has particular characteristics and needs, which deserve special attention.

Men’s skin ages differently

A man’s skin has about 20-30% more collagen than a woman’s, giving it much more structural support. However, collagen levels drop rapidly after the age of 40 years leading skin to lose its elasticity and firmness. Wrinkles begin to form more quickly, becoming deeper and more visible.Our Hydrating Daily Moisturiser incorporates active ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid and Jojoba Oil, to tone and firm the skin, along with an anti-aging peptide to stimulate collagen production.

Shaving affects the quality of the skin

Day after day, shaving destroys the hydrolipidic film of the skin and leads to a loss of natural lubrication and protection. The act of dragging a blade across the skin causes irritation and nicks, creating scar tissue, increasing dryness and badly affecting the barrier function of the skin.All of our products are designed to minimize, soothe and repair shaving damage while, at the same time, rehydrating the skin. Shea Butter, Apricot Kernel Oil and Glycerin protect, lubricate and nourish the skin. While Aloe Vera and Allantoin soothe and heal, and D-panthenol and Matrixyl® help repair the skin.Men’s Skin

A man’s skin is more susceptible to environmental damage

Direct exposure to the elements means that a man’s skin is more susceptible to damage caused by the free radicals produced by UV light, pollution and other components that damage skin cells.Our products include powerful anti-oxidants to protect skin from free radical damage. Vitamin E, Jojoba Oil and Black Tea Extract help to accelerate the natural regeneration of the skin and directly inhibit further damage.

Men’s skin tends to be oilier

Sebaceous glands are more numerous and more active in a man’s skin, making it more prone to acne and blemishes.We include ingredients that work to regulate sebum production, as well as having anti-bacterial properties – such as Tea Tree Oil, Jojoba Oil and D-Panthenol – which help prevent any acne.

A man’s skin has a higher concentration of blood vessels

This can lead to redder skin.Black Tea Extract, Tea Tree Oil and Shea Butter have been incorporated to reduce and calm any redness and inflammation. The D-panthenol in our Daily Hydrating Moisturiser is extremely effective in soothing irritated skin and is often used in the treatment of sunburn
