What does XTOL mean?
XTOL is a spin on the word EXTOL. In the dictionary Extol means: to
The parent company of XTOL, Root Source Inc.(R.S.I.), wants to do exactly
that. Five years ago, R.S.I. developed their highly successful hair
growth product line, The Restoration Series for those suffering from
hair loss. From this experience, the founders have developed an incredible
bond with the men on the program and realized that ‘retaining
their youth’ is important to them all, regardless of whether they
are 18 or 80.
As a result, XTOL Men’s Club was born and continues to serve men
the highest quality products specifically designed for use by men.
What is the XTOL Men's Club?
XTOL Men’s Club is a complete skin and body care line designed
specifically for men and their unique needs. Whether you work in an
office or outside, your skin takes a beating. Compound environmental
conditions with a poor skin care regimen and you have skin that is aged
and wrinkled before its time.
XTOL Men’s Club was developed and researched by men, for use by
men, throughout the world. Our purpose is to extol the virtues of men
everywhere. Men the world over are looking for a simple (Practical)
and effective(Tactical) way to retain their youthful looks or to reclaim
them, depending on their age.
Headquartered in Vancouver, Canada the creators of XTOL (Root Source
Inc.) have committed to using only the purest water, organic and natural
derived ingredients and the latest in technological advancements in
skin care treatments and ingredients.
In so doing, XTOL offers a simple system for men’s skin care solutions. Why
bother using XTOL Skin Products?
As all men know, the last thing on their minds is to spend extra time
maintaining healthy and youthful skin. From their teens to maturity,
men traditionally ignore their skin. In fact, the sign of wrinkles and
graying hair has been considered a ‘status symbol’ to most
men, a sign that they have paid their dues sort-of-speak. Even women
have accepted the aging of men. Some women think it is sexy but it is
more likely that women really just liked the fact they were able to
appear younger than a male companions.
Today the world of men is different. Today’s world is a ‘YOUTH
CULTURE’. Men are not defined by wrinkles, gray hair and an increase
in their belt size. Today, success in the work force and the ability
to attract the sex of your choice are all predetermine by how young,
healthy and physically fit you appear to others. These days of ripped
abs, youthful complexion and other youthful attributes will enhance,
if not determine your business and personal success.
Today’s male, we believe, understands this new ‘healthy
and fit’ movement to be a real one. While all men can wrap their
brains around the concept of a ‘work-out’ to keep their
bodies in shape, most do not even think, let alone consider how to retain
the youthful appearance of their skin, particularly their face.
This is where XTOL Men’s Club products come to the rescue. Our
Commitment to males.
Our mandate is simple. To make men look their very best with the least
amount of effort. In a few simple steps each day, men can maximize their
appearance to match their zest for life and the work they do in gyms
and by living an active lifestyle.
And if you don’t work out or lead an active life-style....then
we are committed to making it look like you do!
With XTOL Men’s Club products, we are not increasing the amount
of time and effort you need to look your best. We are only increasing
the quality of the products you use. What
makes it simple to use.
Men not only want a younger appearance but also need it. The challenge
is they really do not want to have to work at it. The last thing a male
wants to do is spend endless hours in the bath room the same way they
have seen women do to retain their youthful appearance.
XTOL Men’s Club has developed an entire skin and body system of
products that will reduce the time spent on maintaining your appearance
while achieving the maximum result possible. Continued use of XTOL will
see the texture, tone and overall appearance of your skin change regardless
of your skin type.
XTOL Men’s Club products are divided into two categories; Skin

VITAMIN POSPHATES (the latest technology in Vitamin efficacy. The strongest
and purest form of vitamins allowing for the deepest penetration into
the skins tissue and creating the maximum results possible.)
The four elements of Skin Care.
What the NEW MALE needs to know that in skin care there are basically
only four necessary elements, or steps to a great skin care regimen.
The four elements are:
ELEMENT 1: CLEANSING
This is simply the act of cleaning the SURFACE LAYER of the face or
body. It removes environmental elements such as dust and pollutants
and other matter that coats the skin and can clog the pores if not removed.
But the key to healthy, youthful skin is ‘proper cleansing’.
If done properly, the skin will always be clean but not over stripped.
Often men think that after washing their face the face should be dry
and void of any sheen. This is wrong.
Every man cleans his face, but most men use a bar of soap, the same
one they wash their body with. Most often these products are purchased
in a drug store or super market environment and cost very little. Again
most men think ‘soap is soap’, and the decision to purchase
‘soap’ is a matter of price. Nothing could be more incorrect
than that assumption.
The simple fact is soaps, whether in bar or liquid form, that are purchased
in a food or drug environment are ‘HARSH’. The pH levels
in these products are generally much higher than the natural pH balance
of the skin. So what does this mean?
When you use soap you ‘strip’ the face of all its beneficial
properties that keeps your skin healthy. Simply, with continued use
of these products your skin will dry out and as a result will begin
to form wrinkles, create skin flaking, increase the size of the pores
and other harmful effects. The result is dry, tired, acne and/or aging
So how to correct it. Spend a little more and get a superior product.
The adage of ‘you get what you pay for’ never was more true.
If there is one thing that will set your ‘first impression’
off to a good start is a healthy, vibrant, and youthful appearing face.
Please refer to XTOL Men’s Club PRODUCT REVIEW for the answer
to proper cleansing.
ELEMENT 2: EXFOLIATING
A big complex word that has a simple meaning. While CLEANSING removes
the surface dirt from the top of the skin, EXFOLIATING removes the old
or dead skin from the first layers of the skin. The result is to expose
the new layer of skin underneath.
Skin is like snakeskin. It sheds layers of skin cells as they die off.
Unlike a snake however, these dead cells do not come off once a year
in one piece. Instead, everyday your skin sheds dead skin cells, to
expose the underlying ‘new layer’ of skin. As this new layer
is exposed the skin shows a more vibrant, healthy sheen, which identifies
When you exfoliate your skin, the products used are designed to remove
as much of the dead skin as possible with as little irritation as possible.
Of course you can go to a dermatologist and have your face surgically
exfoliated, which will remove the entire first layer of your skin. This
always leaves skin red and sore for a period of time till the new layer
heals. While some men with ‘rough’ or scarred’ skin
may choose this option it is not recommended or really necessary.
There are three different types of exfoliation product. One; Micro exfoliation
with uses enzymes and acids (common acids are Alpha Hydroxy Acid and
Beta Hydroxy Acids), Two; Physical exfoliation with uses small grains,
seeds or beads to remove the dead skin and Three; Gum exfoliation which
uses a sticky, gum like approach to pull dead skin from the surface.
XTOL Men’s Club EXFOLIATING products are designed to quickly and
effectively remove the dead skin from its upper-most layer. Relax! No
one will know you’ve exfoliated your face. Although, YOU will
notice a marked difference in the appearance of your skin as you continue
to use the product.
ELEMENT 3: PROTECTION
Did you know, that “all aging starting with childhood up to the
age of sixty is from exposure to UVA and UVB rays” (leading aesthetician
Richard Johansen). This is commonly referred to as ‘photo aging’.
The Sun and exposure to environmental elements makes you look old. The
more exposure, the greater the damage. Protecting the skin is critical
to keeping the skin young and healthy and will keep it that way as you
age. Tanning may look cool, but in twenty years your skin will show
all the signs of this over exposure to the sun. Deep creases on the
skin are not an appealing sight.
According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, one million new cases of skin
cancer occur each year.
Skin cancer (melanoma) accounts for more than 10,000 deaths.
UV rays are linked directly to premature again causing wrinkles, roughness
and loss of elasticity.
Not all sunscreens are created equal. You get what you pay for.
Serious sun burning (even just one) in childhood can lead to serious
permanent effects. Most children have many burns in their development.
Some exposure to the sun is good; the sun can ward off depression and
enable us to process vitamin D
You are being exposed to harmful UV rays even when there are clouds
and the day is hazy.
TWO TYPES OF UV PROTECTION
ORGANIC protection is the combination of natural, organic ingredients
to protect the skin. All ingredients are found in nature. Their properties
often allow for deeper penetration into the skin tissues offering critical
CHEMICAL protective ingredients are also known as Inorganic. Inorganic
is mined and form a physical barrier on the skin. This barrier sits
on the top of the skin tissue and can often lead to poor skin conditions
after prolonged use.
XTOL PROTECTIVE SOLUTIONS
There is no question that global warming is seeing many changes in our
environment. Simply put, the sun’s UV rays are more intense than
ever and getting increasing worse every year. While there are many sunscreens
on the market, again, what you pay for is equivalent to what you get.
Not all sunscreens are alike.
XTOL offers only the latest technology in its sunscreen products. It
is recommended that a SPF factor of 30 to 45 works to eliminate the
damaging effects of the sun. We cannot encourage men enough to select
a XTOL Protection Product that best suits your life style. XTOL works
to ensure that your skin will retain its natural elastin properties
while providing a totally natural appearance to your skins texture and
ELEMENT 4: MOISTURIZING
This is the one element of good skin care practices that most, if not
all men, over look from their youth till their senior years. If only
men realized that a simple, 30 second application of a quality moisturizer
in the morning or evening would greatly improve the condition of their
skin and thus their appearance.
Even young men should replenish the moisture properties of their skin
after they wash. Doing so will ward off the signs of aging for many
years. Maturing men also need to recognize the import of replacing the
critical moisture properties to their skin. The times have changed.
No longer is dry, tired skin on men a ‘macho’ thing to have.
Looking after their skin and body is key to social acceptance and personal
confidence. Moisturizing helps you obtain both.
XTOL offers a series of moisturizing products specifically designed
for your skins’ needs and type. Daily use of these products will
work to prevent the formation of wrinkles /creases and will work rapidly
to reduce the signs of ageing. Let 30 seconds take away 30 years of
What you do with your life makes a huge difference.
You may not know this but there are life-style factors that can make
a massive difference between having great skin and poor skin. Here are
a few for you to consider.
CLIMATE: If you live in a warm climate seasonally or annually cleansing
is required more often. This helps to remove excess oils and perspiration.
Colder climes require more gentle cleansing practices. Moisturizing
and Protection are required in both situations.
DIET: What you eat and drink are essential to your skin condition. You
can never have enough water although it is determined that 8 glasses
of water a day is likely the right amount. Avoid unhealthy food choices
as this will not only affect your skin but body as well.
STRESS: Think positive and stay happy. Sounds simple but such a mindset
will assist in good skin. Stress can play havoc to your skin, from breakouts
to rashes and more. Get lots of rest, use relaxation methods or sport
activity to burn that stress out of you body..
IMPROPER SKIN CARE: Use of harsh products will do damage to the skin
over a long period of time. Usually this effect is drying and flaking.
