Changing the Face (and Body) of Male Grooming with Doers of London

How to look and feel your best

Doers of London

London, an impossible combination of culture, sophistication and business ventures few other cities can rival. Many have tried to match its incredible engineering below the ground, reproduce the clippers that launched from the Thames to the New World and borrow from the designs that allowed a gentleman to navigate cobblestone in style to their all-seeing perches way up in the skyline. None came close to replicating the results. Only those from the City know the secret – the grind.

“Born of the city.”

The Doers of London range was forged in the no man’s land between luxury products out of the working man’s reach, and those within lacking the quality and efficacy required to keep you looking and feeling at your best, most authentic and most confident self.

Results driven

Vegan Society Approved and Cruelty Free International stamped, Doers of London understands that in this modern age washing away even the most stubborn of grit and recharging the hardest workers among us needn’t require harsh synthetics. Results can be achieved with skin loving essentials and botanical extracts; self-made benefits from nature for the self-makers of the concrete jungle. From the unique scent notes of Frankincense and Bergamot, to the calming influence of Cucumber and Lemon; the mix of aromas provide a show in themselves.

“Here’s to the movers and the shakers, the instigators of change.”

Doers of London’s brand is focused on giving back those hard workers throughout the centuries for all their honest graft. A thank-you for providing the shoulders for the next generation to stand on, and for the sacrifice every Doer must make today to get to where he wants to be tomorrow.

With a striking white on black minimalist design, and with water clinging delicately to the bottle when in action, these products really strike a chord on any bathroom shelf.

The Range

Body Wash Dispenser 300ml RRP £16

Though powerful enough to provide a vigorous clean through its combination of organic natural extracts, it’s the very same natural ingredients that make it gentle enough to be used daily. Within the sleek dispenser can be found Organic Green Tea, harbouring Polyphenols, antioxidants and anti-bacterial properties. Organic Evening Primrose Oil provides essential fatty acids to increase natural moisture retention and support the lipid barrier. Green Coffee and Avacado Oil supply vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants to reinforce, smooth and enhance the skin. The pièce de résistance of this body wash is the glorious odour fighting aromas of Frankincense and Bergamot – leaving you fresh, relaxed and smelling amazing all day and night.

Facial Cleanser Dispenser 200ml RRP £18

Designed with both the damaging effects of the city and the irritating side effects of shaving in mind, Facial Cleanser by Doers of London provides a gentle foam to remove impurities and excess sebum without dehydrating the delicate skin of the face. Powered by Organic Cucumber’s anti-inflammatory and astringent assets to balance oily skin and improve the appearance of pores, the facial cleanser also takes advantage of Organic Green Tea Extract for its anti-bacterial and antioxidant properties. Jojoba Oil has properties similar to the lipids produced by our own bodies to naturally protect the skin and facial hair, whilst Lemon and Lime Oils contain Citric Acid for gentle skin exfoliation.

Hydrating Face Cream Aluminium Tube 100ml RRP £20

Doers of London’s answer to three skincare needs of most men; reducing redness and irritation caused by shaving and the environment, deeply moisturising and improving skins natural protections, and contrasting the tell-tale signs of ageing.

A tall task taken care of by Organic Borage Oil and its rich Omega-3 and Omega-6 Linoleic Acids. Both acids moisturise the skin and improve lipid barriers to support skin’s natural healing process. Organic Green Tea Extract containing Polyphenols and Catechins particularly Epigallocatechin-3-gallate provide anti-oxidants which contrast skin inflammation, UV damage and Collagen breakdown. Vegetal Vitamin E provides Oxidative cell damage and the skin ageing process with obligatory Jojoba Oil to aid in skin protection and maintain order.

Shampoo Dispenser 300ml RRP £18

Hard workers should be rewarded. Not only does the mind get fatigued but hair is an open target for abuse also. Formulated to strengthen and nourish, Doers of London Shampoo contains powerful Hydrolysed Wheat Proteins to Soften and Condition; adding shine to dull hair and volume to thin hair. Copaifera Officinalis Oleoresin has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties to combat the formation of an itchy scalp. Organic Sage, Nettle and Calendula extract contain a strong vitamin and mineral combination to improve circulation and stimulate the growth of healthy hair follicles.

Shave Cream Aluminium Tube 100ml RRP £14

Doers of London’s consistency was developed with the classic shave balancing act in mind; providing a close shave with an easy glide to reduce the initial shave damage, whilst treating the inevitable irritation with the right natural ingredients for restoration. Organic Birch Extract offers decongestant, dermo-purifying and astringent properties to reduce inflammation and redness. Organic Grape Seed Oil contains Omega-6 Linoleic Acid to restore skin barriers while improving razor glide. The use of Shea butter to soften, moisten and regenerate skin is complimented by the astringent, calming and antiseptic properties of Vetiver and Myrrh Oil supporting healing after shaving. Finish off with Daily Grind Moisturiser and your skin will feel brand new every morning.
