Products like hair serum and exfoliating scrubs are being sold to more men than ever, reports Matthew Boyle at Bloomberg News.
Global sales of men’s toiletries, not including razors, blades and shaving creams, will be up 5% to $US17.5 billion this year, Boyle writes.

Ford, who is a favourite of Justin Timberlake, recently introduced a purifying mask for men.
