Adopt a Military Service Member for the Holidays

Each year we give thanks for all the blessings we have received. From the roof over our head, to the new

promotion at work, we look inward and reflect on what we are truly thankful for when we sit down at

Thanksgiving dinner.

When you are planning this year’s Thanksgiving meal, consider adding an extra plate and chair to your

table. As a company that actively supports our military men and women, we ask that you consider

adopting a service member to join you and your family for dinner this holiday.

Many servicemen and women are unable to make it home for the holidays, including those already on

American soil that have duties that require them to stay close to base. In 2009, the San Antonio, TX area

alone hosted 4,295 soldiers that could not make it home for the holiday. These are the men and women

we ask you to share your home with and personally thank for the services with a homecooked holiday

meal.

Imagine being able to look across the table and personally thank a man or woman that had a hand in

making your country a little bit safer, who defended it when your country was put in danger…

At any time during your holiday dinner, snap a picture of you and your family with your service member.

Post your picture on Shaveology’s facebook page. We will be sharing the images you post to showcase

all the men and women who so graciously shared their home with a service member this Thanksgiving.

We have resources to connect with you with service members from the United States Marines, Navy

and Airforce. Our resources allow anyone from the East coast Valley, San Antonio Metropolitan area,

residents around Wilmington, NC; and Great Lakes area residents. If you not see your location listed, do

a quick search for military bases in your area.

For those who do not live near a military base, you could participate by supporting or volunteering

Operation Homefront’s Holiday Meals for Military program, which supplies holiday meals to military

families. Just take a picture of your donation or a picture of you volunteering and post to Shaveology’s

facebook page.

If you would like to house a soldier, but this Thanksgiving is not convenient, Marine Corps Community

Services Miramar (MCAS) is accepting applicants from around San Diego, CA to host Christmas dinner for

a local marine.

Give The Gift of Shaveology!

Whether you are shopping for your husband of 30+ years, your boyfriend who seems to have everything, or your son that just entered high school, Shaveology products are the best gift to give this holiday season.

It’s a proven fact: traditional wet-shaving is better for your skin than shaving with the modern razors that most of us are used to. However, Shaveology products take it a step further with quality razors that guarantee you the best shaving experience. Also, our accompanying quality shaving products—like our “silver tip” badger hair brush with stand—and skin care regimen will boost the health of your skin.

Both of our Anti-Aging Rich Shave Lather and Advanced Anti-Aging After Shave are infused with golden seaweed. In our last blog, we discussed golden seaweed’s detoxifying, acne fighting and thyroid boosting properties in addition to its revered anti-aging benefits. Our Lubricating Pre-Shave Oil creates a protective barrier that prevents the face from nicks and cuts. It also softens facial hair to promote a smooth, effortless shave.

All three of these products are available bundled together in our Skin Care Trio to help you save!

Switching your shaving regime to Shaveology products is also cost effective. Over a lifetime of shaving, the average man is estimated to spend $5,698 on low-grade “economy” disposable razors and $6,786 on high-end “luxury” disposable razors. Meanwhile, the lifetime cost of using Shaveology is a mere $820!

Giving a Shaveology giftset this holiday will set up the special man in your life to make the transition to a more luxurious and affordable shave.

Your man’s skin and wallet are not the only elements that will benefit from switching to Shaveology products. In the U.S. alone, TWO BILLION razors end up in landfills each year. Most disposable razors are non-recyclable. They are made of plastic that cannot breakdown in this lifetime or the next. Switching to reusable razors alleviates the damage of waste production from razors.

Shaveology is also a proud supporter of Soldiers’ Angels, a dedicated non-profit that works daily to improve the lives of United State’s soldiers, veterans and their families. Purchasing Shaveology products allows us to continue working with this respected organization.

The best part: Shaveology products are risk-free! Try for 90 days. If Shaveology is not for you, we will give you a full refund for your purchase. Unsure about using a double-edged safety razor? Check out Shaveology University for lessons.

Why Shaveology Golden Seaweed Infused Rich Shave Lather and After-Shave Balm?

 

A great shave needs more than a great razor; it starts before the razor even touches the skin, and continues after the last hair has been removed. I am talking about your shave lather and after-shave balm. Both of these products have been designed to have a positive impact on the health of your skin, but Shaveology’s products go a step further. Infused with golden seaweed, our Rich Shave Lather and Anti-Aging After-Shave keep the hair and years off your skin and more…

 

The benefits of seaweed in skincare have long been recognized for the plants ability to fight acne, detoxify skin, and boost thyroid function. However, the extra-moisturizing and anti-aging properties of golden seaweed, Laminaria Ochroleuca or brown seaweed, are unique and have been studied by scientists. For these reasons, golden seaweed is a primary ingredient in our Rich Shave Lather and Anti-Aging After-Shave.

 

There is no question that the average aerosol can of shaving cream you get from the store does not compare to the benefits of shave lather and will dry out your skin. Most people remark that canned shaving cream is more convenient, and it is. But our shave lather is easy to activate and adds less than 90 seconds to your shaving routine. It will return moisture and detoxify your skin, protect you against nicks and cuts, and keep your skin looking young and healthy for years to come.

 

After-shave balm provides more for you than just a cool, tingly feeling after you get done shaving. Daily shavers typically know what I am talking about. But if you are a scruffier fellow that likes to go a few days between each shave, then you might consider after-shave balm to be an unnecessary, added expense. Don’t. This is where the acne-fighting properties of seaweed play a big role and prevent pimples before they form. Shaving opens your pores and makes your face vulnerable to bacteria. After-shave balm protects your pores and closes them up to prevent bacteria from getting in after you shave.

 

Have a wife or daughter that is complaining about irritated bumps running up and down her legs from shaving? Women can also benefit from switching to after-shave balm over their standard moisturizer. Actually, women can benefit from trading in any of their standard shaving equipment for any and all Shaveology products.

 

Once again, because our lather and after-shave balm are formulated with golden seaweed, the anti-aging properties only add to the protection our shaving products provide.

Shaveology and R. Riveter Join Forces to Support our Military Families with the Grand Opening of New Storefront!

Shaveology has joined R. Riveter in their mission to inspire, engage, and empower military families. How are Shaveology and R. Riveter bound together? Shaveology, a traditional wet shaving product line, and R. Riveter, a handbag manufacturer, both support Military families. Both companies were built around a passion to help United States Army Veterans and their families.

 

Until now, Shaveology’s products were only available online. Customers can now skip the wait on shipping times and pick up products directly from the R. Riveter stores. Shaveology prides itself on its handcrafted and expertly engineered razors that have a modern take on a classic design. They produce specially formulated men’s shaving products while paying homage to the double-edged safety razors that stress quality and affordability.

 

The heart of Shaveology’s work revolves around raising awareness, support, and money for our United States Veterans. Shaveology proudly supports Soldiers’ Angels, a charitable organization that aids and comforts the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and their families. In addition to advocating Soldiers’ Angels, Shaveology supports the organization through donating a portion of the profit from each sale.

 

  1. Riveter’s business model surrounds itself around employing Military Spouses and supporting United States Military families. They produce high-quality, hand-made bags that provide portable, creative career opportunities to military spouses and women from all walks of life. This mission allows military families to earn a living while they are stationed anywhere around the world.

 

  1. Riveter was recently featured on Shark Tank, creating many of their handbags made from upcycled military equipment. These reclaimed materials consist of old uniforms, tents, wool blankets, and other fabrics where portions of the handbag’s construction are then outsourced to military spouses. Upon completion, they are sent to a central location for final assembly. Not only does this provide employment to military spouses, but also allows spouses to maintain a consistent income source while moving from base to base, stationed anywhere across the country.

 

Because the average military family moves every 2.9 years, spouses routinely have to restart careers from scratch. R. Riveter’s business model is also a great work-from-home opportunity for military families with small children.

 

Naturally, these companies had an affinity towards each other’s work. The addition of combined storefronts allows these two companies to further spread their products and mission to provide support to military families.

Why Shaveology…

We hate to say it but, yes, our first blog is about why you should buy our product. However, I don’t think that this blog is going to play out the way you imagine it will.

Of course we think our product is the best wet shave line, period, and others agree. However, we have a higher purpose as well. As a company, we feel that giving back to those that gave to us and social awareness is extremely important. We like to call it Capitalism with a conscious, and we whole heartedly believe that we are privileged enough to do what we love so we should help others along the way.

So how do we give back?

We have partnered with an amazing organization called, Soldier’s Angels, and a portion of our sales go directly to support their mission. Here are the main reasons that we have chosen them as a partner:

-The largest volunteer network of any charity of its kind in the country

-Provided over $100M in aid to military and veteran families

-Maintains an efficiency rating of 97%, which is above that of the average nonprofit     organization

-Fully Accredited by the Better Business Bureau

-Named as one of the top rated charities in America in 2014, 2015, & 2016 by Great Nonprofits

-Served over 7,600 veterans with luncheons/dinners at VA Medical Centers in 2015

-Provided support to over 290,000 service members, veterans and family members in 2015

-Provided over 61,000 items to veterans at VA Medical Facilities in 2014-2015

-Sent over 800,000 care packages to combat deployed service members over the last 13 years

This one reason alone should answer, ‘Why Shaveology?’… Yes we have amazing products, but we also have amazing purpose!

Keep your eyes open for another partnership with R.Riveter, another company that supports our military families.
