and high-quality accessories for men
Where we come from
This is a story of how one mountain trail trip completely changed the way our founders perceive the male cosmetics industry and decided to revolutionize it. We know that when traveling the backpack weight matters – that’s why during one of the mountain trail hikes in the Bieszczady Mountains we noticed that a typical shower gel or a shampoo bottle just doesn’t work for us. Thus, we decided to create our own bar soaps and shampoos that would be the ultimate companion for your adventure.
Yet a lot has changed since our first trip to the Bieszczady Mountains in 2014. Our Research & Development team is always searching for a way to sustainably expand our product portfolio and make sure that our customers feel healthy and handsome all day long.
Values: nature and sustainability
Our biggest inspiration is nature. Because it is from nature that we derive the most powerful active ingredients such as charcoal, black Chaga, and hemp. Taking care of the planet and wild nature is a top priority for us, so we eliminate unnecessary waste and create products in the spirit of zero waste. Evidence? We sell soaps packed in cartons, our durable razors and brushes will serve you for years. We promote quality over quantity and simplicity over-exaggeration. We aim to think global but act local – ZEW for men cosmetics are made to meet the modern man´s needs with active ingredients sourced from the Bieszczady Mountains – one of the last wild forests in Europe.
ZEW for men stands for:
- Practical solutions inspired by traveling
- Quality and simplicity over exaggeration
- Preservation of nature
- Sustainability as a driver of innovation
- Men’s health & positive personal development
- An active lifestyle and adventurers spirit

Always active - Charcoal
The main ingredient in the Black Charcoal collection is activated carbon. It is a natural active element that can be found in hair, face, body, beard and shavings soaps, beard lotion, and our top-selling hair pomade. We decided to celebrate Charcoal because it’s an ingredient that is full of antioxidizing qualities that help you feel fresh and deeply cleansed. Thanks to its properties, it absorbs pollution and damage done by rough environments, and by creating a protective barrier for skin it supports skin regeneration.
Always natural - Black Chaga
Black Chaga is a legacy ingredient that can be found in the northern hemisphere. It’s a mushroom – but don’t get tricked by the looks – this is a powerful plant that is being used for various health benefits for decades. It’s known to be used as an ingredient in medical and skincare products to strengthen the immune system, fight skin and body inflammation and replenish dry and tired skin.
The ingredient can be found in our signature beard oil, aftershave balm, and anti-inflammatory body and face creams. The product line is made with care for those who care about their skin and hair health. Enjoy smoother, intensively moisturized skin and beard with our always natural Black Chaga line.
Always positive - Hemp
Hemp is a nutritional bomb! It’s a rich source of vitamins, minerals, proteins, antioxidants, and amino acids. Because of all these nutrients, hemp oil helps regenerate a very dry and damaged beard, prompt the restructuring of damaged skin cells, and help combat the effects of aging.
The product line is for those who suffer from dehydrated, oily, aging, and patchy skin. Due to all of the micros hemp oil helps calm the skin and is safe to use for people who suffer from skin allergies. It also contains active substances with anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, anti-oxidant, and sun-protective properties.
Line with Black Charcoal
our favorite natural active ingredient can be found in: hair soap, soap for face and body, shaving soap, beard soap, 3in1 soap for face, body and hair, beard lotion, hair pomade, toothpaste and toothbrush hair. Charcoal has a cleansing and refreshing effect. Thanks to its properties, it absorbs pollutants from the environment, and while creating a protective barrier for the skin, charcoal supports skin’s regeneration.
Line with Black Chaga
another powerful natural active ingredient, also known as the ‘diamond of the forest’, can be found in: beard oil, after shave balm, and body and face cream. It has a strong healing and cleansing effect. Intensively moisturizing the skin, black chaga visibly smoothens and protects against external factors. Due to its properties and the natural origin in secluded forests, it is an exceptionally valued and rare active ingredient.
We are a diverse and international team of professionals who specialize in various fields. At the same time, we share the same fundamental values and principles – dedication to quality and simplicity, love for nature and passion for adventure.
