Sperm counts are set to reach zero in 2045, leading scholar Shanna Swan says.
A huge part of this is caused by hormone-disrupting chemicals in our enviornment.
Chemicals such as bisphenol A and phthalates (commonly found in plastics & fragrances) are interfering with your testosterone.
While other factors such as contraception, cultural shifts, obesity and smoking are likely to be contributing factors, Swan warned of indicators that suggest there are also biological reasons — including studies that found infant boys are developing more genital anomalies and testosterone levels have been dropping at 1 percent per year since 1982.
What we're doing about it
Other men's self care products can contain harmful chemicals that are bad for you and the enviornment.
We decided to create the opposite by lessening our profits.
We use more expensive, cleaner ingredients and bottle our products in glass instead of cheap plastic.
Soon we'll have deoderant, body wash, wipes, and more.
How Our Ingredients Are Different
Big corporations often add the word "fragrance" or "parfum" in their ingredients list. Due to privacy laws they can add whatever they want to their fragrances and no one would know what's in it. These fragrances usually contain phthalates (which disrupt your hormones), but it allows their scents to last longer.
Our products are clean, fragrance-free, and phthalates-free. We use creative ingredients like Witch Hazel or Bee Propolis to get the job done because we believe you shouldn't have to expose yourself to artificial estrogens to take care of yourself.
Our Sustainability Efforts
Corporations often increase their profits by using cheap plastics for their products instead of glass.
Unfortunately, because of this scientists are calculating that by the year 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. Plastic has become so far reaching that they've even found it in our blood. This is NOT good for us or the planet.
So we've decided to do things differently.
Here is a list of steps we've taken to be more sustainable:
1. King's Care bottles are made from recyclable glass instead of plastic.
2. Our boxes are made with recycled materials and they can also be recycled again.
3. Our shipping bags are biodegradable, so they won't be filling up our landfill.
