BELOW THE BELT
In 2014, Below the Belt realised men were experiencing a very real issue that needed addressing. Among the plethora of men’s grooming ranges, there were no decent products to effectively keep the groin area fresh and dry. Men were forced to use messy white talcum powder, or even spraying underarm deodorant down there (not a good look!). They decided to put a stop to this gnarly situation and created a range of skincare products to combat the discomfort of perspiration and chafing in the groin area, for a long lasting fresh and clean feeling. Expertly created in the UK, their regimen of everyday products make life for modern, active men more comfortable, so you can feel your best all over, all day.
