American Crew® announced a major milestone in its ever-evolving interpretation of how men want to look, feel and ultimately define themselves. ACUMEN™ is the brand’s biggest launch to date with a complete collection of high-performance formulations for shower, shave, care and style that target the grooming needs of today’s man.
The collection features 15 products for in-shower, pre- and after-shave, as well as for skin and haircare. Key ingredients include AC ACUMEN™COMPLEX, a proprietary blend of Vitamins B5 and Vitamin E with added antioxidant and moisturizing agents bound together for superior performance and visible results. Additional ingredients, such as Hyaluronic Acid, Ginger Root Extract, Bisabolol and Cranberry Extract, work to increase skin and hair ability to retain moisturize, fight environmental damage and promote radiant, healthy-looking skin.
“We are so excited to inspire men to groom with confidence. This is more than a regimen. With ACUMEN™, we hope to elevate a man’s look while meeting the needs of his daily grooming ritual,” says David Raccuglia, Founder of American Crew®. “This new line brings an element of sharpness, sophistication and aspiration to the skincare, beard grooming and body care routine. 
As American Crew® prepares for its 25th anniversary in 2019, the brand encourages men to reflect on their grooming routine with confidence. Led by the innovation that has made American Crew® one of the leading professional men’s grooming brands, ACUMEN™ products feature a powerful complex of vitamins, antioxidants and moisturizing agents to deliver superior performance and visible results.
