It’s time to let that ‘mo grow: Nutrafol is participating in Movember, a mustache-growing charity event held during the month of November each year that raises funds and awareness for men’s health.
Movember is the leading charity changing the face of men’s health. Across the world, men die an average of six years younger than women, and for reasons that are largely preventable: Prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and suicide are leading causes of premature death in men. With the goal of significantly reducing the number of men dying prematurely by the year 2030, Movember proceeds benefit prostate and testicular cancer research as well as mental health organizations.

How Nutrafol is getting involved
On November 1, the men of our company participated in a “shave down” so they can start Movember facial hair-free. Nutrafol CEO Giorgos Tsetis kicked off the event with a full shave, inspiring the rest of the team to throw support behind the cause.
Some team members committed to growing out their mustache, while others committed to walking 60 miles throughout the month for the 60 men lost to suicide every hour. You can track our team’s progress via Nutrafol’s Movember team page.
The statistics Movember is trying to reverse
Nutrafol is committed to wellness and helping people grow, but currently, men’s health is in crisis. Unchecked, prostate cancer rates are set to double over the next 15 years, and testicular cancer rates have already doubled in the last 50. Across the world, one man dies by suicide every minute of every day, with males accounting for 75% of all suicides.
With its groundbreaking projects and participation all over the world, Movember is able to address this crisis on a global scale. By 2030, the movement hopes to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by a quarter.
That means half as many men will die from prostate cancer and testicular cancer, half as many men will suffer serious side effects as a result of treatment, and the rate of male suicide would decrease by 25%. Nutrafol wants to take action and be among those making strides (and growing ‘staches) toward change.
