This fast-absorbing, non-oily gel-lotion is made for all-day skin hydration, and also works great as an after-shave lotion. It’s specially-developed, fast-absorbing gel lotion free of parabens, PEGs, mineral oil and phenoxyethanol that uses apple fruit extract to maintain the skin’s natural moisture barrier without the need for silicone. Plus, the Army-issued look is no fluke–the new brand bills itself as “the first military-native wellness company” whose products have been field tested by BRAVO SIERRA’s community of more than 1,000 U.S. Special Operations forces.
