Mission sober

The sober mission

Grooming and shaving for every man

Simple, effective and well tolerated.

OUR VISION

In the beginning there was the vision to develop honest and effective care products for the modern man. We want to solve the problems we have as men in the bathroom with shaving and skin care. Driven by the search for excellent care for our skin, we therefore began researching and developing our own highly effective recipes and formulas for cell renewal and reducing oxidative stress in men's skin. In order to meet our own high standards and be able to influence the entire development process, we deliver quality made in Germany. We not only want to create the best products, we also want to make them as affordable as possible.

Our Clean Care philosophy means concentrating on the essentials. The volume applied during daily skin care is small and spread over a large surface. We therefore consciously concentrate on a few ingredients that are proven to be effective.

Without parabens, petrochemicals, nanoparticles, silicones, artificial fragrances, synthetic colors and many other pollutants, Prof. Dr. Schirner and his team products specially tailored to the needs of men's skin. Made to regenerate, protect and counteract skin aging in daily combat. We are very happy that many men are already accompanying us on the way to making skin care and shaving simple, effective and tolerable.

Made in Germany.

We men, too, sometimes look in the mirror and secretly wish to go back in time - to where we still had particularly youthful skin. We have been contributing to this since 2017 with our care products that are visibly effective and good for skin and the environment without any questionable ingredient.
