The Kind Ingredients Inside Our Products

At Planet KIND, we’re on a journey to make quality shaving and skincare products that are kind to skin and the planet. But what does it mean to be kind to skin, you ask? It doesn’t mean giving your skin compliments, although you’ll probably get a bunch of those if you use Planet KIND. Kind to skin means using safe, gentle ingredients and providing you with full transparency about what goes into each product. Because our journey to a kind place starts with what you put on your face.  

Our Kind Commitment to Your Skin

We’re the type of people who stand in the middle of the skincare aisle studying the back of a bottle as if it were a best-selling novel. If you are too (and even if you’re not), then you’ll love Planet KIND. We choose high-quality, safe ingredients you can trust, and formulate our skincare to be effective while staying gentle enough for daily use (with skin-friendly pH levels). Our products are also free from parabens, SLS sulfate, ethyl alcohol and dyes. Below you’ll learn more about the special care we take to ensure each product lives up to the promise we make of being kind to your skin. Plus, explore an ingredient glossary to give you full transparency on why each ingredient is there.

What Makes Our Refreshing Face Wash Kind

Daily washing with our face wash is the cornerstone of a kind skincare routine. It can help remove impurities and keep skin looking healthy and feeling clean. For those with facial hair, washing your face before shaving can also help soften hair follicles and make them easier to cut. Our Refreshing Face Wash features a skin-friendly pH of 5.3 and is infused with Vitamin E, aloe and cucumber extract.

What Makes Our Protective Shave Cream Kind

Under a microscope, the surface of your skin is quite irregular. Our Protective Shave Cream helps reduce friction between your skin and your razor, helping it glide smoothly to give a more comfortable shave. It is made with soap surfactants which create a protective, anti-friction layer between the skin and blade to help you get a close shave while reducing the risk of irritation. Like our other skincare products, it is infused with Vitamin E, aloe and cucumber extract.

What Makes Our Nourishing Moisturizer Kind

Our Nourishing Moisturizer can be used daily to rehydrate and nourish skin. To explain how it works, we’re going to throw a few fancy science words at you. It includes niacinamide, also called vitamin B3, which has been shown to help strengthen skin’s natural moisture barrier. Humectants work to bind water in the upper layers of your skin, while emollient oils leave your skin feeling smooth and comfortable while locking moisture into the skin. All this is to say that when you use our moisturizer after washing your face your skin looks and feels amazing.  

What Makes Our Razors and Blades Kind

Shaving can feel like kind of a chore, our goal was to make it just feel kind. Using five high-quality Gillette® blades, our razor delivers a smooth, comfortable and close shave. The five blades are precisely spaced to distribute pressure evenly and are mounted on springs to react to the contours of your skin. A lubricating strip further enhances the shave, helping the razor glide smoothly. The anti-slip razor handle gives you greater precision.
