Frequently Asked Stuff


Skin solutions that combine colored cosmetics with effective skincare ingredients:

  1. Provide immediate relief to reduce the appearance of imperfections
  2. Address underlying issues and improve overall skin health

Men are different than women (duh). 

1. If you say the words makeup or cosmetics, most guys will run away. That’s why our hybrid skin care focuses on using tried and true ingredients to also deliver real benefits to your skin. We know most men want solutions. We don’t want to cover up our face just for the fun of it.  

2. Biologically, our skin is a lot thicker, more oily, and prone to irritations because we sweat and shave often. We’ve tested hundreds of formulas to tailor our solutions specifically to the nuances in men's skin. 

3. And for guys, skin care is personal. When you see a typical cosmetic product, most guys will scratch their head and turn red. We value discretion because we believe guys deserve access to products they can use without feeling insecure. Guys who just want effective and simple skin care without the glamor (and price tag).

Of course, we all have different comfort levels when working with skin products. If you’re comfortable using female products, then that's awesome! Healthy skin is an individual journey, and we hope to be one more resource to support guys along the way.

It’s short for West Oakland. We were founded in a vibrant (and historically neglected) community located in the middle of the San Francisco Bay Area.

We get it. Skin stuff can be overwhelming. There's tons of products out there and you really don't want one more thing on your bathroom counter. 

That's why we are building WOAK to be different than the rest. We’re creating untraditional, yet approachable skin solutions that you can’t find anywhere else (because we’ve looked). 

- We’re NOT fancy. No shiny packaging. Nobody to impress.
- We’re NOT expensive. No extra markup just cuz you’re a guy.
- We’re NOT embarrassing. No hiding in drawers and feeling insecure.
- We’re NOT complicated. No 10 step routine. So simple even a guy can use it.  

We are tackling male stigmas head-on. It’s about time for guys to feel comfortable taking care of their own skin!

Controversial question! Here's our take:

Skin care (two words) = noun

Skincare (one word) = adjective

e.g. I love using WOAK skincare products for my skin care.
