Understanding Our Ingredients


Our skin faces challenges every day, from shedding skin cells to the build-up of micro-pollutants that clog our pores, to pores that overproduce sebum (oil).

On top of this, we all have different skin types, and many of us suffer with skin conditions including acne, sensitivity, rosacea, blackheads and dryness.

However, by maintaining a balanced and consistent skincare routine, we can fight all the challenges our skin faces to keep it healthy, nourished and breakout-free.

All MESOA for Men products are made up of naturally derived ingredients specially selected to treat all skin types with the nourishment and support it deserves. 

Neroli Essential Oil is an antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory ingredient that reduces spots and breakouts, and soothes irritation. These properties also allow it to rejuvenate dry and tired skin, and by rebuilding skin elasticity, it helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles. 

Aloe Vera works to soothe, calm and heal the skin. It also aids in skin protection, and repairs and relieves irritation. In addition, Aloe Vera contains vitamins A and E, antioxidants and enzymes - these work to gently exfoliate the skin, keeping it clean, fresh and smooth.

Sandalwood Essential Oil is in all of our signature range products and it's safe to say it's one of our favourite ingredients.

It can aid in curing a whole range of skin conditions, including dry skin, wrinkles, acne, blackheads, redness and skin irritations. It can also help restore damaged skin cells, and has antiseptic and antimicrobial properties that can help shield the skin from harmful bacteria and viruses.

On top of all this, Sandalwood Essential Oil rejuvenates and soothes.  And it has powerful hydrating effects, penetrating deep into the skin to deliver an intense dose of moisture. It really is a hero ingredient!

Mandarin Essential Oil is rich in antioxidants, which helps it neutralise free radicals that can damage skin cells and lead to early ageing. It prevents skin infection by averting bacterial and fungal development, whilst also renewing the skin's complexion. 

Mandarin Essential Oil is rich in vitamin C, contributing to wound healing, brightening, and calming the skin. It also rebalances oil levels in the skin to improve the skin texture, clearing acne and soothing congested skin. 

Glycerine is one of the oldest and most respected skin moisturisers and is a timeless classic in skincare. It deeply hydrates the skin to relieve dryness and freshen the skin's surface. 

Bladderwrack Seaweed can help soothe skin irritations, including burns, insect bites, dryness, and itchiness. It also works to flush toxins out of the skin. In addition, the antioxidants in Bladderwrack Seaweed promote collagen synthesis in the skin, which will help improve fine lines and wrinkles and slow down the skins ageing process.

Pro-vitamin B5 is high in vitamin E and fatty acids, which work to give the skin a natural boost and keep it soft and smooth. In addition, Pro-vitamin B5 protects the skin's barrier and helps the skin retain its moisture levels.

Witch Hazel helps to soothe and cool the skin, and combats the effects of regular shaving such as dry skin and redness. It works to treat acne, blackheads and whiteheads and, due to its anti-inflammatory properties, can reduce eczema and psoriasis flare-ups. 

Each week we will be blogging more about the fantastic benefits that our chosen ingredients can have on your skin, hair and body.
