New Scotch Porter collection targets sensitive skin

By Gisselle Gaitan - 02/14/2018
Quallis Brands’ Scotch Porter is venturing into brand new territory with its Sensitive Skin Shave Collection. Consisting of two products — Pre-Shave Oil and Shave Cream — the collection aims to properly hydrate skin, reduce razor drag, decrease nicks, abrasions and skin irritation that could be caused by shaving, the company said.

Creating men’s grooming products isn't anything out of the ordinary for the brand, but for founder Calvin Quallis, creating a line that is both gentle and suitable for various skin types was the next logical step.

“The one thing we saw that was missing from our current product lineup was shave products — and not just any shave products, but shave products that are gentle and work for all skin and hair types. We want to make sure we're catering to all of our client's needs,” he said.

However, it doesn't come down to simply using the right products to obtain the perfect shave. Quallis also wants consumers to understand that prepping the skin beforehand and finding the right razor is just as crucial. That, he said, is where Scotch Porter steps in, creating products meant to ensure its users are obtaining the best skin care without having to do too much.

"What you use to shave is just as important as your razor. If you have a great razor but mediocre products, you’re still going to end up with a terrible shave. However, if skin is prepped and moisturized prior to shaving, you’ll end up with a much closer, comfortable shave," Quallis commented. "As with everything we do, this collection only contains the best skin-friendly ingredients. This was a natural extension of what we do and this collection is just another way for guys to take care of their facial hair without too many extra added steps."

In the coming months, the brand said it plans to expand the line to include an after-shave balm and a post-shave SPF face lotion.

“All our current products are formulated to be gentle on the skin and contain skin-friendly ingredients. We're always working on refining the current formulations to make our products even gentler in the future,” Quallis said. In the meantime, he said Scotch Porter will continue to educate the consumer on common shave issues, product benefits while highlighting product-in-use by curating content on all of its social channels and working with micro influencers to develop unique content.

The company also has plans to launch into new categories and expand its current offerings in the coming months. Scotch Porter's Sensitive Skin Shaving Cream can be purchased on the company's website, retailing for $20 and the Pre-Shave Oil is available for $18.
