Wise words from Dad. For Dad.

With Father’s Day coming up, the THANN team has been working hard in store to get ready for this special day. We took a break from THANN Skin Care’s hustle and bustles today to chat—sans business—about our DADs. Fadi, THANN Canada President and soon-to-be-father, shared one of his father’s wisest words for him growing up.

“My dad always emphasized the importance of school. EDUCATION was the #1 priority because he believed that that would give my siblings and I a good…no, GREAT future,” Fadi says.

He adds, “There were not many restrictions growing up as long as we did well in school. We were allowed to do whatever we wanted, go wherever we wanted to on the condition that we did not lose focus in school.”

Judging from Fadi’s many achievements, which now include being named one of Ottawa BusinessJournal’s Top 40 Under 40 winner, his dad’s wise words were worth listening too!

Fadi shaving for his dad. What a wonderful son!
Now, here are some of Fadi’ s wise words about Father’s Day gift ideas…because men NEED pampering too:
  1. Aromatic Wood shower gel

Because it cleans thoroughly for healthy skin. Plus, the scent of orange, nutmeg and tangerine oils in this shower gel will leave him feeling energized and smelling great. 

  1. Sea Foam shampoo 

Because the mint oil in this shampoo refreshes the mind and spirit while fighting dandruff away.

  1. Rice Extract Face Cream

Because everyone needs an effective non-greasy moisturizer! It helps prevent and protect dry skin providing temporary relief from scaling and chapping associated with dry skin.

  1. Shiso Astringent Toner

Because it can be used as an alternative to his aftershave. He’ll be saying goodbye to burning, stinging sensations and saying hello to a cool feeling after shaving with THANN’s all-natural, alcohol-free Shiso Toner.

  1. Rice Extract Lip Balm

Because it nourishes and moisturizes the lips all-year round. Who in their right mind welcome chapped lips? No one. Thought so.

What do you think of Fadi’s Top 5 picks? We’d love to hear from YOU!
