  • Peppermint Extract is best known for its ability to help calm and relieve stress. Aromatherapy benefits make any Peppermint-infused product a pleasure to use—especially after a long, trying day.

  • Peppermint also boasts revitalizing properties that helps give skin a pick-me-up. Need an instant boost? Look for Peppermint Extract in the ingredient labels when you’re on the prowl for products.

  • There’s that soothing, cooling effect—thanks to its menthol content—we all know and love. If you’re looking to upgrade your shaving cream for something different, give our Peppermint Shaving Cream a spin. It’s guaranteed to leave your skin feeling fresh.
