The Science behind The Bluebeards Revenge

Designed by a real life ‘Bluebeard’ who was bored to death with being a Desperate Dan look-alike, the flagship products in The Bluebeards Revenge range are a paraben free, barbershop-quality shaving cream, brushless shaving solution and post-shave balm with added ingredients to specifically reduce the appearance of hair growth and combat tough stubble.

All three have been formulated to our unique specification in one of the UK’s premier male cosmetics laboratories who are renowned experts in the field of shaving cosmetics.

The Science behind The Bluebeards Revenge

Contains Decelerine: Reducing the appearance of beard growth and providing a recovering effect on the skin

Decelerine contains a mixture of active ingredients that delay hair growth, reducing the frequency of shaving and depilation and at the same time providing a recovering effect on the skin.

How Decelerine works:

The normal hair cycle is divided into four periods:

1.) ANAGEN – Active Growth Phase (2-6 years)
2.) CATAGEN – A short transition period with regression (2-3 weeks)
3.) TELOGEN – A resting phase (2-3 weeks)
4.) EXOGEN – A shedding stage

Then the new hair starts to grow and the follicle is back in Anagen. The length of hair is primarily a function of the relative durations of Anagen and Telogen. Whether hairs are in one of these phases at the time of hair removal is important because only Anagen hairs are particularly sensitive to the effects of Decelerine. Decelerine targets it’s action in hair follicle cells and weakens new hair formation. It has proved to be effective in inhibiting hair growth, decreasing length and density of unwanted hair and also providing a soothing, moisturising and anti-inflammatory effect.

In tests Decelerine showed a 30% decrease in hair length as well as a 16% reduction in hair density after 60 days.

As well as slowing down beard regrowth, Decelerine relieves and soothes the effects of shaving (especially skin prone to irritation and dryness) by providing moisturisation and protection to facilitate it’s regeneration.
