If you follow this blog or read Lucky Tiger product labels you see a lot of ingredient names that you may recognize, but not be familiar with.
Lucky Tiger differentiates itself from many other brands because of its natural ingredient inclusion. Here are a few of these ingredients, and why they are important:
Shea butter – WebMD says: “The shea tree is found in East and West tropical Africa. The shea butter comes from two oily kernels within the shea tree seed. After the kernel is removed from the seed, it is ground into a powder and boiled in water.
According to a Science Publishing Group abstract reproduced from the American Journal of Life Sciences: “Shea butter….. is therefore useful for skin care as it has sun screening properties and acts as an emollient and skin moisturizer. Topical use of Shea butter has also demonstrated anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties.

Chamomile – It’s more than just high tea.
From Healthline: Chamomile oil contains azulene, known for increasing moisture and reducing inflammation.
Found in: Lucky Tiger Liquid Cream Shave, After Shave and Face Tonic
Peppermint oil – We all know that peppermint is a refreshing and revitalizing ingredient with many benefits and used in many consumer products.
This summary from Naturally Healthy Concepts, a comprehensive health supplementation merchant, puts it very well: “Peppermint oil contains antioxidants (specifically flavanones and phenolic acids) that help neutralize free radicals and protect the skin through the aging process. (29) In addition, menthol, the active ingredient in peppermint essential oil, acts as a gentle cleanser and discourages the growth of bacteria to promote clear skin.
“Peppermint oil may also support healthy-looking hair and scalp by combating dryness, itching, or other scalp issues. Menthol is a vasodilator that naturally supports blood flow. When blood circulates through the scalp, healthy hair follicles get the nutrients necessary for growth.”

Calendula – This ingredient combines the Calendula flower petal (Calendula officinalis, otherwise known as a marigold flower) with carrier oil and is used in three Lucky Tiger products. Calendula oil has been suggested as healing agent for eczema, acne, diaper rash and psoriasis. Of course, most guys won’t have all these skin conditions….at the same time! But, the calendula ingredient profile makes it a favorable, natural ingredient for healthier skin appearance through helping the skin with better hydration and firmness.
