Baxter of California

Since 1965, Baxter of California has created high-end, small-batch men’s grooming and care products. Your one-stop shop for skin, hair and shaving essentials, Baxter believes that excellent quality pomade doesn’t need to be pompous.

Men’s Grooming Products

Getting the closest shave has never been easy with the aptly-named Super Close Shave Formula, which allows your razor to glide along the surface of your skin without clogging. Tea tree oil eliminates redness while acting as an antiseptic, while menthol and peppermint extracts refresh after what would normally be an irritating shave. Also available in the full-sized Super Close Shave Formula jar.

Following every shave, replenishing the skin’s irritated layer is of the utmost importance. This is where Baxter of California After Shave Balm comes in handy: not only do glycerin and aloe condition and lock in moisture, but tea tree oil and menthol soothe the reddest of faces. Baxter believes that natural ingredients care for skin better than anything, so why not luxuriate in natural and organic ingredients?

Baxter Hair Products

You can tell a lot about a man by his hair, and unfortunately, many shampoos and conditioners don’t do a solid job of gently removing buildup and toxins like DhT, which hinders hair growth in men. Baxter shampoo wakes up hair with cinnamon and tea tree oil and reinforces each follicle with proteins and enzymes. Perfect for all hair types and conditions: what are you waiting for? After a good scrub, some of us experience dry or frizzy hair. Not to worry: the versatile Baxter Grooming Lotion can tame even the most unruly flyaways. Feel free to apply it on wet, damp or dry hair. Use it together with Baxter hair products for extra manageability and structure, or rub a small amount in and go au naturel.

Baxter Pomade

Water hardness can change styling dramatically, and soft water can make hair feel greasy, or like soap can never fully wash out. The Soft Water Pomade has been tried and tested by Baxter to handle even the finest hair, giving it volume and style with an all-day hold. Want a wet look? Apply a fingernail-sized amount to damp hair and style as usual. For a stiffer coiff, try the Hard Cream Pomade. Normal to thicker hair benefits from this hair styling product most, and gives a vice-grip hold with a barely-there shine. The top-seller is, unsurprisingly, the Baxter Clay Pomade, which settles the age-old question of “Pomade vs. Clay?” Versatile and made for with hair type in mind, this is the matte finish pomade every man needs in their styling arsenal to get texture and volume that works as hard as you do.

Facial Products

Pomades aren’t the only clay products at Baxter: the Clarifying Clay Mask absorbs and eliminates oil from the skin’s surface, leaving a refreshed complexion behind. The avocado oil and aloe vera add Vitamin E and healing properties. Follow with your new favorite Face Wash that reinvigorates and cleanses deeply without stripping moisture from skin, even post-shave. Once a week, be sure to apply the Baxter Facial Scrub to slough off dead skin cells with walnut shell powder, tone with aloe and encourage revitalization with botanical blends. The biggest cause of premature aging is dry skin, so be sure to add the Oil Free Moisturizer to your daily routine. There’s no fragrance, oil or dyes, and plenty of antioxidants like green tea and chamomile that soothe and lock in moisture.

Bath and Body Products

There’s nothing quite like Baxter soap, and the Vitamin Cleansing Bar certainly doesn’t disappoint with its full lather and skin-friendly glycerin stripe. Gorgeous yet masculine scents like bergamot and pear create a pleasurable experience out of any bath or shower. There’s a reason that Baxter of California Deodorant is one of the best deodorant products for men that we’ve encountered: it works! Aluminum- and alcohol-free, this hard-working citrusy-scented stick keeps your health in mind and your scent in check.
