As the mother of an almost-teen boy, I am so excited about this week’s announcement. Finally!! Organic skin care for boys! Please welcome Alpine Beginnings’ latest product addition; 808 Dude!
Expanding my product range to include teenage (and tweenage) boys has been on my ‘to do’ list for a long time, and now it’s finally a reality. 808 Dude skincare products are entirely Australian made, and derived from natural and organic ingredients, with no nasty chemicals. They evolved from another mother’s desire to provide her own son with healthy skincare options and to help boost his shaky teen self esteem. Teenage girls are not the only ones who suffer problems with confidence and self-image during those transitional, hormone-riddled years; of course boys are similarly affected. And in these days of social media and digital everything, self-image propaganda is just as prevalent for boys as it is for girls.
By teaching our boys the importance of hygiene and skincare, we can help them to put their best face to the world as they deal with the challenges of their age. The confidence you feel from thinking you look good will always shine through, so that you WILL look good, no matter what. And that’s a huge moral booster.
808 Dude products are simple – boys wouldn’t go for them otherwise. The range includes Zit Free Face Wash, No More Stinky Pits Deoderant, and 808 Dude Shampoo & Body Wash in one. Because they contain only natural and organic ingredients, no nasty chemicals, you’re not exposing your son to the toxins found in mainstream products. 808 Dude products also use only natural fragrances, so the scent of your adolescent won’t sour like synthetic fragrances can.
However, before recommending any product, I prefer to meet with clients (and sons) to assess their skin, and discuss their concerns and help them to understand how easy and essential good skincare is. So to talk about skincare for teenage boys, please contact Elisa
The 808 Dude products now available at Alpine Beginnings include*:
Zit Free Face Wash

Together, these ingredients rid the skin of any spots, heal scars and stop further outbreaks.
