As millions of Canadians continue to shelter in place, dad’s lives are busier than ever. While boundaries between work, childcare, household responsibilities, and everything in between continue to blur, fathers need to continue to take care of themselves. With this Father’s Day unlike anything we’ve experienced before right around the corner, we wanted to share some of Unilever’s most dad-focused wellness and personal care products to help give dad a little extra self-care this year.


Dad likely isn’t receiving the same nutrients he usually gets. Containing Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Lycopene, these antioxidants help fight cell damage caused by free radicals. Vitamin A and Vitamin D also help to maintain immune function, while Vitamin B6 and Zinc help with energy metabolism.


With dads currently working overtime, sleep is essential. This expert blend of Melatonin, L-Theanine, and Botanicals promotes deep sleep without morning grogginess and helps to reduce the time it takes to fall asleep in people with delayed sleep phase disorder.


Dads can use all the energy they can get right now. High-quality ingredients including Vitamin B12, CoQ10, and goji berry help with energy levels, without any caffeine. Vitamin B12 is a factor in the maintenance of good health, while Goji and Coenzyme Q10 are sources of antioxidants that help protect against free radicals.


Give your dad the gift of less stress. This expert blend of GABA, L-Theanine, and Lemon Balm helps reduce stress levels. GABA boosts alpha brainwaves, the same wave patterns generated during meditation and yoga which temporarily promote relaxation.

Schmidt’s Tooth+Mouth Paste Activated Charcoal With Wondermint®

Much like the rest of dad’s personal care routine (which likely needs some extra TLC), his oral hygiene routine could benefit from this charcoal-infused product. Featuring natural ingredients such as goji and pomegranate extract, this toothpaste helps freshen breath and whiten teeth and helps combat plaque and tartar with regular brushing.

Schmidt’s Here + Now Deodorant

86% of adults say they are interested in making the switch to natural deodorant, but more than half are concerned it won’t work. While many have been spending more time at home, there has been a trend in conversation around making the switch, and dads can join in too! Co-created with Justin Bieber, Here + Now combines mellow, woodsy notes for an unforgettable aroma and features a new baking soda-free formula with activated charcoal.
