Our philosophy.

Our minimalistic philosophy means everything from the ingredients to the packaging are kept simple, yet highly effective. Our products work because of what's in them as much as what's not. We cut out all the crap that can wreak havoc, and only use the good stuff skin needs to calm, clear, heal and protect itself. It’s what skin really needs, regardless of gender, age, skin type or tone.

schaf skincare - one skincare line for humankind

Founder story.

We’re a husband and wife team in our 50’s that started our clean skincare journey believing that we could create something effective and that worked for the both of us on our (ahem) 'mature' skin. 

After decades of dealing with our own skin issues, my wife and I took a closer look at the ingredients in the skincare and grooming products we were using. It shocked us to find out we were constantly coating our faces with irritants and sensitizers.

This was a huge WTF moment – we were soaking up big corporate irritants and paying for it in more ways than one.

I was so appalled, I enlisted the help of a chemist to test some products that didn't contain these irritants. And they worked. Our skin looked great again. We felt great again.

That’s when our genderless, minimalistic approach to natural skincare products was born. 

Schaf products work because of what's in them as much as what's not. We cut out all the junk, and only use the good stuff skin needs to calm, clear, heal and protect itself. 

It’s what skin really needs, regardless of gender, age, skin type or tone.

You don't have problem skin, you have problem products

Some skin care brands and trendy skin care regimes encourage a multitude of steps and products - as many as 12 steps a day! That's just nuts.

Applying too much product trains your skin to rely on these products, so it gets lazy, and can't find any kind of balance with all the product being thrown at it, which in turn perpetuates many skin problems. 

We believe biggest mistake people make when it comes to skincare is thinking they need different products for different genders, skin types. While it is true that there are some differences between male and female skin, that doesn’t fundamentally change how skin works or what it needs to calm, heal, and protect itself.

Our less-is-better philosophy is about taking a few steps back, using fewer but better products, harnessing the power of multitasking, and discovering how a simpler, cleaner skincare routine can result in better looking, healthier skin.
