Movember is a charity that supports men suffering from depression and raises awareness of testicular and prostate cancer. Men are encouraged to grow a moustache for the month of November each year to raise money for the charity and raise awareness of men’s health issues.
The products are available in three scents: Lime & Mint, Lemon & Ginger, and Orange & Grapefruit. The Beard Balm is a twist on Mr Blackman’s current Beard Balm using fragrances that complement a variety of cocktails. The Moustache Wax is a completely new product.
Mr Blackman’s and Mount Gay will introduce the products at the annual Food & Rum festival in Barbados.
Mr B. from Mr Blackman’s said: “We always planned to launch a moustache wax around Movember, but with the Food & Rum festival on at the same time we thought the timing would be perfect to do something a little different. Of course I had to approach Mount Gay, my rum brand of choice to see if they wanted to collaborate! The fact they did was great! The Movember cause has always been close to my heart. I been through tough times myself and I seen a lot of friends and friends of friends in bad places. Some we lost, so if we could do something, however little, we going do it.”
The balm and wax are available to buy online from www.mrblackmans.com and in Barbados at Genetics Beauty Salon in Quayside Centre, Rockley, priced at £7.95 and £9.95 respectively.
