The best ocean-friendly grooming products for men

Whether travelling by boat, plane or car, looking your best on the go inevitably involves investing in some of the best grooming products for men. However, with pollution thought to be one of the biggest threats to the world's oceans, it pays to remember that the chemicals in your moisturiser, sun cream and hair products all contribute to this crisis. Look after yourself and the seas with our pick of the best ocean-friendly grooming products for men.

Murdock

With seven barber shops across London, there is very little these chaps don’t know about hair. Don’t let the sea style your locks – use this spray to give them some swell.

Sea salt styling spray, £20, Murdock London

Erno Laszlo

This black soap – in a white case – is made of Dead Sea mud, which removes dirt without drying skin. It creates an incredible lather, making it a greener substitute for shaving foam. None other than Cary Grant was a fan.

Sea mud deep cleansing bar, $38, Erno Laszlo

Elemis

This anti-ageing cream’s magic ingredient is Padina pavonica, an algae that grows off the UK coast. To avoid depleting wild stocks, Elemis uses a sustainable algae farm near Malta to keep up supplies.

Pro-Collagen Marine Cream for Men, £56, Elemis

Mario Badescu

A smart choice for faces on the frontline, this toner avoids stripping your skin with a soothing, sustainably sourced blend of aloe and anti-inflammatory seaweed extract.

Seaweed cleansing lotion, $15, Mario Badescu

Heeley

This cologne is a spritz of lemon and cedar-scented driftwood that brings the beach to you.

Sel Marin, €125, Heeley Parfums

Foreo

This dinky silicone “brush” will supercharge your cleansing routine with a sonic vibration that deep cleans pores in a way no amount of splashing around with your hands ever could.

Luna 2, £169, Foreo at Space NK

Green People

With 6,000 tonnes of sunscreen washing off swimmers and attacking coral reefs annually, this grease-free formula is one of the best marine-safe suncreams.

Scent-free sunscreen SPF15, £13.50, Green People
