You’ve seen watches made with leather, metal, canvas … but watches made almost entirely of wood? That’s unique.

With this multitasking body wash, you can go from post-gym musk to “just chopped some wood at a cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains”—all in the span of a quick shower. (Seriously!) Good for hair, face and body, this gel transforms into a satiny lather that smells of red cedar, smoky vanilla and bourbon. Soothing aloe and purifying white birch extract are standout ingredients, as is the vitamin B5 for taming flyaways. olivinamen.com

This menswear company uses only sustainable vegan materials and ethical labor. Brave GentleMan shoes, for example, are made of Italian-milled “future-leather”: a microfiber that’s actually biodegradable. The brand creates everything from organic cotton pants and shirts printed with bold patterns (like uncoiling snakes and Jurassic-sized leaves) to “future-wool” moto jackets. Brave GentleMan is the brainchild of Joshua Katcher of thediscerningbrute.com, a super-suave men’s vegan lifestyle site, which explains why every piece is so on point. bravegentleman.com
