A Kiwi adventurer tackles a saltier Everest

Kiwi kayaker Scott Donaldson is unquestionably a man of adventure – a Dirty Man’s kind of man: Who else would forge on in a kayak, even when ships throw in the towel because the going’s got too tough (or in this instance, rough)?

Is Scott Donaldson's feat up there with Hillary?

British adventurer tackles microlight world record

It seems that men and their magnificent flying machines still exist.

A British adventurer is attempting to break a world record by flying from England to South Africa in a microlight plane in what is being dubbed as the Flight of Ikarus challenge.

What does DirtyMan smell like?

At DirtyMan, we often get asked what our deodorants smell like. So here is a run down...

A natural men's moisturiser that started life on a building site, where else?

Most businesses start at the kitchen table; DirtyMan started in the bathroom... on a building site.

The original DirtyMan, Mike Orange (that's the good looking bloke on the right), noticed himself in the mirror and quickly decided he needed to look after himself a little better.

So began the search for a man's hygiene and skincare products that provided exceptional results (Mike certainly needed it), but also a men's personal care range he could feel comfortable about using.

But there didn't appear to be any male grooming products out there – like men's moisturiser and facial scrubs – that were designed solely for guys, or which wasn't a hand me down from a "corporate monster" brand focussed on 'women's skincare products.

What's more, the men's skincare lines seemed like afterthoughts of those brands... and most of the men's antiperspirant and shaving cream products were riddled with chemicals.

This had to change...

In 2007 the DirtyMan concept was born.

"As we began giving life to the DirtyMan brand we found it surprisingly humbling how well received the concept was," says Mike. "We began asking around and finally found the help we needed to take DirtyMan from a single idea all the way to an awesome range of male skincare products.

"It's been a long hard road with plenty of speed bumps along the way, but the sleepless nights and early rises have finally paid off so we can finally bring you the the best quality male skincare brand to date... men's moisturisers, shaving gels, face wash and deodorants – all aluminum free (no Aluminium Chlorohydrate), paraben free, organic, hypo-allergenic, cruelty free, no white residue, non-sticky, non-staining.

And it's for men - we guarantee you won't smell like your mother or your better half (unless she starts using the products, which is quite possible).

"We believe in the philosophy that getting 'dirty' is fun, and blokes do all sorts of good stuff for fun. That's why DirtyMan is getting behind events and sports that embrace the concept of fun - dirt bikes, mountain biking, tough man endurance events etc. – so you can expect to see our team out and about and if you know of any events you think we should come along to, drop us an email at info@dirtyman.co.nz

So get out there mate! Get dirty and let DirtyMan transform you from a crusty bloke to one smooth dude in no time!
