In this episode of the Mankind Podcast, we talk with Charlie Razook, the inspiring founder of Jackfir, a certified clean men’s skincare brand. Charlie shares his journey from being a leukemia survivor to becoming a pioneer in the men’s skincare industry. 

Charlie opens up about his battle with leukemia and how it led him to adopt a clean living lifestyle. His experience underscored the importance of self-care and clean products, ultimately inspiring him to create Jackfir.

We dive into the hidden dangers of common skincare ingredients and the benefits of clean alternatives. Charlie emphasizes the significance of using products free from harmful chemicals, supported by resources like the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database.

The discussion shifts to the broader impact of masculinity norms on men’s health behaviors. We explore how outdated stereotypes have discouraged men from embracing self-care and the promising changes as more men, including celebrities like John Legend and The Rock, begin to adopt skincare routines.

We highlight the growing market for men’s skincare products and the urgent need for transparency and higher standards in the industry. The episode compares regulations in the EU and the US, shedding light on the disparity and the push for better industry practices.

Charlie delves into the unique attributes of Jackfir’s products, which are inspired by the Adirondack State Park. He discusses the use of natural ingredients and essential oils, the brand’s commitment to transparency, and the cost versus value of clean skincare products.

Finally, Charlie shares practical advice for budding entrepreneurs, emphasizing the importance of authenticity, patience, and creating a positive impact. He reflects on the journey of establishing Jackfir and its recent feature in GQ.
