Potassium hydroxide

Potassium hydroxide, also known as Lye, is used in many chemical reactions. In cosmetics, it is used in the manufacture of soaps. In the presence of glyceryl stearate, an emulsifying complex is obtained, allowing water/oil mixtures, called emulsions, the basis of most cosmetic products. Finally, potassium hydroxide can be used as a pH stabilizer, in other words, to maintain the correct acidity of the formula.

Natural ? Yes. Boring? Never !

Between us gentlemen, aren't you fed up with products with synthetic odors and dubious compositions? Do you want to go back to nature, with healthy formulas that preserve your beauty capital?

We do too, which is why Monsieur BARBIER has rethought the design of products for men in order to imagine the most natural products possible, by carefully choosing each ingredient and each active ingredient, for an uncompromising balance between effectiveness, sensoriality and naturalness. Naturalness, yes, but not at the expense of style or pleasure.

In this approach, Monsieur BARBIER is one of the only brands for men to be members of COSMEBIO and subject to ECOCERT audits, for its Cosmos Nat labeled products. And all of our products are free from controversial ingredients, or ingredients of animal origin. Not even hurt ! Did you know that our Full Care oil was the first beard oil in the world to receive the Cosmos Nat label? In addition to being the first dry oil in its category, we will let you discover the benefits for yourselves.
