Make Skincare as easy as 1-2-3 for Dad
This Daily Essentials Kit by Toronto’s clean beauty brand, Teal n Bronze, demystifies skincare for any guy…even your dad. Besides using USDA-certified ingredients and being free of toxic chemicals, we love the fact that all their handmade products are multi-purpose with holistic benefits. The kit includes Multani Multi-Soap which will deep-cleanse and exfoliate his skin with the miracle Indian clay. Many of the product’s male fans also use this soap for shaving. The Balancing Face Oil is a light moisturizer that also doubles up as a beard oil. Java Jazz Body Butter is whipped for a light finish not just for the body but works for the hands and feet too. We love the delicious mocha scent of this rich, light moisturizer. Remember to watch out for your mom. She will want the products for herself.

The signature comb is designed for styling his hair AND combing out his beard. He will love the convenience of the 2-in-1 Shampoo and Body Wash.
