Citric acid

Citric acid is simply the molecule that makes lemon juice acidic. It is also present in many of the human body's essential biological mechanisms. What does it do? Well, a cosmetic product should be about as acidic as its application area. This is measured with the pH (acidity index). The skin, for example, has a pH of around 5.5. This is quite acidic, and fortunately, it is this natural acidity that protects us from many chemical compounds and other microbes. To adjust a cosmetic product's pH (around 5.5 if it is to be applied to the skin), there are two major compounds, citric acid, to decrease it, and sodium hydroxide, to increase it. It is the right dosage of both in the formula that allows obtaining the target pH, for the safe use of your favorite product. ;)

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.
