Frequently Asked Questions

MadeMan is the solution for any man who seeks to take control of his life and his looks. It is a foundation for good habits, discipline, and self-confidence. We are simplifying self-care for men who have arrived and for those who are on their way.

Why does eating healthy cost more than fast food? You get what you pay for when it comes to skincare— and you may not realize it, but your face makes up the majority of a first impression. The fact that the entirety of a skincare regimen, packed with the best ingredients into The Re(Set) costs just $85 for a two-month supply (barely more than $1/day), the question you should be asking is “why doesn’t it cost more?”

Yes. The Re(Set) can be purchased without a subscription for $100. The Resetter can be purchased individually for $60 (subscription for $51 every two months), and the Refresher can be purchased separately for $85 (subscription for $72.25 every two months).

While it will vary based on your skin, we have seen results in as little as a week, and on average, after four to seven weeks of daily use. However, you will feel the benefits of both products immediately upon application, and The Refresher has a proprietary pore-reducing serum that creates a slight but instant “airbrush” effect on the face, minimizing skin imperfections and pore appearance.

Physically, wash your hands, apply two pumps to your hand, and apply in small circles evenly to your face. The Resetter should also be applied over areas with facial hair, and then washed off with water after application. From a mechanical standpoint, the ingredients in both products penetrate and absorb into the skin, leaving the face feeling silky smooth, cooled, and revitalized. Our products also contain humectants that moisturize and help your skin retain moisture. The Resetter also doubles as a shaving cream and an after-shave.

While the Re(Set) products are really meant to be used in tandem to provide a holistic skincare solution, you can purchase them individually. The Resetter is a product to be used at a sink or shower, while the Refresher can be used on the go whenever your face could use some revitalization.

The Refresher protects from pollution and digital light exposure, while also minimizing skin imperfections and pore appearance. Continued use will improve skin luminosity (glow) and texture, as well as reduce redness and signs of aging. The Resetter is a sulfate-free soap-bark solution for cleaning your face and shaving and should be rinsed with water after use.

Of course. While we encourage you to take the best care of yourself as you can, we trust that you know what is best for you. You can manage your subscription by logging into your account.

In short, no: that is a bad idea. 55% of men consider a bar of soap to be sufficient; however, the skin on your face is thinner and has more oil glands than the skin on the rest of your body. Most soaps and body washes will actually dry out your facial skin and/or clog its pores with oils. MadeMan’s products hone in on those differences to provide your face with a robust and simple skincare regimen.

Men produce more collagen and sebum (oil) than their female counterparts, which thickens the skin. Our ingredients, unlike women’s skincare products, are formulated to absorb into men’s thicker facial skin.

Of course! But while women may enjoy the feeling of MadeMan products, the products really are created for mens’ skin. Ladies: the best use for MadeMan for you is to inspire confidence in your male friends.

MadeMan sources the highest quality certified vegan and cruelty-free ingredients from all over the globe, but our products are proudly produced, formulated, and filled in the USA.

All of our products are certified vegan by The Vegetarian Society!

We have received Leaping Bunny cruelty-free certification for both our products.

In addition to our cruelty-free and vegan certifications, we ensure that all our products are ethically sourced, as part of our commitment to the MadeMan mission and validated by our B-Corp status.

Of course. While we have suggested doses, some people either have more surface area to cover or simply want to use the product more. You can manage your subscription to refill your MadeMan products more frequently under your account settings.

While MadeMan does not claim to solve hormonal breakouts, our products, especially the Refresher, are formulated with anti-inflammatory ingredients that reduce the likelihood of breakouts. The products provide fortification for your pores to reduce the dirt and harmful particles that enter the skin on your face, as well as provide cleaning— an essential component of acne mitigation.

65% of a first impression is based on your face. If you take care of your body, your wardrobe, your car, your home, etc., you’re still not making as much of a good impression as you would be by taking care of your face.

Yes! Our products have sunflower, castor, and eucalyptus oil, etc. but not harmful mineral oils

The majority of our ingredients are natural or naturally derived. They are chemical sunscreen-free, coal tar-free, formaldehyde-free, microbead-free, mineral oil-free, paraben-free, phthalate-free, triclosan-free, and triclocarban-free. However, in order to create the most powerful, simplified solution, we do use some synthetic ingredients.

Please apply to be a @mademan / @mademaam ambassador here. After we review your application, we will send you further instructions.

Ambassadors get 15% of any sale using their code or referral link. The average sale is $85, billed bimonthly, so on average each referral will yield $76/year. So if an ambassador generates 100 subscribers, they’re making $7,600, and 1000 subscribers equate to $76,000/year. It’s real money. Plus, if they refer their friends to become ambassadors, they get 5% of their friends’ sales. Additionally, we have amazing swag (bikinis, facemasks, shirts) and do incredible trips.

Our solution is optimized for harmful ray protection and contains naturally-derived mica and titanium dioxide (ingredients found in sunscreen.) Our focus, however, is on protecting your face from blue light, the harmful rays that come from screen-emitted artificial light, since that is what guys are most exposed to. If you’re going to be exposed to the sun for more than 30 minutes, please apply the appropriate SPF to your face.

We recommend using the Resetter once per day, at night, and the Refresher afterward. Make sure to wash hands before applying either product.

Why this happens is because MadeMan works gradually to improve skin tone and quality, while removing years of dirt and grime build-up. The dirt & oils need somewhere to go so naturally they will rise to the surface of the skin causing a mild breakout/redress. With continued use of MadeMan over the following two weeks, you will see a steady and noticeable improvement to the skin's appearance and general feel.
