Unusual Ways to Support the Men in Your Life
Updated: Jun 7
Recently, I asked a gentleman friend if his parents taught him skin care and hygiene as a young child. He replied, “Not really, I remember getting a butch haircut and using butch wax to style it and later the pompadour haircut with a duck tail in the back so I used Brylcreem or a pomade. I also used Dial or Ivory soap.” I think many men are in the same boat: they were never taught how to holistically care for their skin. It appears that most skincare marketing is directed towards girls and women. For example, in France daughters are taught how to care for their skin at a very early age. France was one of the first countries providing hair and skin care products for the retail market.
Today's market displays more products for men but unfortunately the strong smell in the lotions, hair care, and underarm deodorants come with a strong artificial odor from the chemical additives in the product. These products are also filled with hormone disrupting estrogenic chemicals and plastics. Additionally, many essential oils on the market have petrochemicals in them, which are one of the major causes of prostate issues.
Gary Young was concerned about reproductive health as the number of couples unable to conceive has increased. In his studies, he found that many causes were from dietary choices and there was a lack of nutrients needed to support the endocrine system. For example, eating meat and chicken with injected hormones contradicts the body’s normal hormonal balances. Additionally, environmental poisons, recreational and prescription drugs, electronic force fields, alcohol, sugar, dairy, additives to food, microwaved food all affect the body’s hormones.
Plants sprayed with chemicals create a deficiency and a chaotic state and do not allow normal mitochondria function or the spark that creates the electrical energy for hormonal production. In many instances, lifestyle and environmental conditions create acidic conditions that harbors parasites or fungus conditions that cause enlargement of the prostate. Modern lifestyle in this electric world stresses the nervous system and the endocrine system including the glands in the head.

While in Arabic countries, Gary Young experienced the unique fragrances of the countries and attempted to find essential oils that had the odors of the Far East. He put together botanicals blended with a number of essential oils for Men and called them Shutran. He knew that most men do not like to take a lot of time in the morning for cosmetic care so he formulated a multitask, shampoo, fash wash, body wash all in one product that protects the acid mantle of the skin while cleansing. Premium essential oils are added to the formula. Simply lather the hair, body and face and then rinse. Shutran truly captures the fragrance of the Far East.
