This November, STMNT Grooming is advocating for growing awareness around men's mental health by donating €20,000 ($19,570 USD) to the Movember Foundation.
Since 2003, Movember has funded more than 1,250 projects around the world having to do with prominent men’s health issues such as mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer, and testicular cancer. Movember is saving lives by challenging the status quo, shaking up men’s health research, and transforming the way health services reach and support men.
Over the course of this month, Movember participants can raise money for the foundation by growing out their facial hair, running or walking a total of 60 miles, or coming up with their own way to gather donations and spread the word.
Below is the brand's statement on the donation from STMNT Grooming:
“Taking a truly collaborative approach, STMNT Grooming Goods has shaped a brand with purpose. A brand that goes beyond the product to rewrite the standards of grooming to build a respected and supported community. This year sees the brand further stand up for what they believe in, putting ‘their money where their mouth is’ with a €20,000 corporate donation to Movember; the leading charity championing men's health, who share STMNT's passion for supporting men in communities around the world."

“If you have dry skin and are growing out your beard, look for a product that will help maintain your beard while hydrating the skin underneath. A beard oil, like the one from STMNT, has non-irritating ingredients that will keep the skin and beard moisturized throughout the month.”

“For the best look every day, make sure you're washing your beard to get rid of product build up. The STMNT All in One Cleanser can be used everywhere and helps start you off with a blank slate.”

“To add a bit more texture and grit to your facial hair, use the STMNT Grooming Spray. Not only will it make it easier to shape your hair, but it will add fullness without being sticky.”
