About

About the brand

FOLS is a skincare and lifestyle brand made by men for men.

It started with a simple premise- There should be all natural products available for male skin that don't make us feel ashamed or embarrassed to use.

 

There is a host of skin issues that arise from prolonged exposure to the sun and the elements, due to bad habits or simple ageing and as it stands, the industry isn't geared towards offering the necessary products. Our mission is to change that.

We have managed to produce a small batch of skincare products. But to scale this and expand our range into bath products, we need your help!

Ready to Ship Products

1- Cedarwood Facial Moisturiser for Men:

Our Cedarwood Facial Moisturiser comes with Neroli and a series of anti-aging ingredients such as blackcurrant oil. It is appropriate both as an after shave and as a daily moisturiser.

Your skin will relief relieved and hidrated giving you both a short-term boost and protecting your skin long-term.

It also has natural occurring SPF, acting as a light sunblock.

2- Lavender Skin Repair Gel:

 

Our skin repair gel is more appropriate for short-term relief. It has a strong presence of aloe vera, which will heal any sunburns or irritation caused by shaving.

Products in the R&D Stage

Our number 1 short-term goal is to extend our product line. To do so, we have 2 products in our pipeline:

1-Lime Face Wash

By popular demand, we are working on a face wash. This product is to be used to clean out the pores in the morning or before going to bed, ideally both. As always, we will maintain our commitment to natural ingredients.

2- Reinvigorating Body Wash

Another requested product, the body wash will energise your morning so that you can tackle the day with the right mindset.

Both of the above-mentioned products will be available in late April/early May.

Shipping

As the products have already been formulated and a small batch has been produced, we are ready for shipping.

We ship from the UK and Portugal, using the Royal Mail and CTT. From the day the kickstarter finishes, expect a maximum of 10 days for deliveries in Europe and 14 for Outside.

Where will the money go?

In order to produce this first batch, we have invested over 1700€ in R&D, samples, and licensing. Our projected costs per unit are around 10€ + shipping, and that’s where the bulk of the money from the kickstarter will go. The remaining, if there is any, will be for the introduction of new products, as above mentioned.

We have also shipped a few test products to early customers, and guess what? They love them!

Future Plans

With your help, we plan to introduce products that men truly want in their bathroom. These include bath bombs, shower gel, hair pomades, and many others. If you have any feedback, please contact us at pedro@folsformen.com

All legal hurdles have been past and all our products are registered in the European Notification Portal, allowing us to sell in the EU.
