Shaving is a part of many people’s daily routine, and finding products that give you a smooth, close shave without irritating your skin is often a struggle. Many over-the-counter shaving creams and aftershaves are formulated with ingredients that can irritate and dry your skin over time, not to mention the impact these ingredients and the packages they come in have on our planet. Here are some of our favourite products and ingredients for getting the smoothest shave, naturally!

Shaving Cream vs Shaving Soap:

Some people prefer to use a shaving cream, while others prefer to use a shaving soap. The main purpose of both options is to create a lather that helps to lubricate the skin, resulting in a smoother, less irritating shave. Neither option is necessarily better, it really just depends on personal preferences. 

In a good shaving cream, we like to look for moisturising ingredients such as shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil, jojoba oil, and glycerin. These ingredients also provide tons of slip to your skin and hair so that your razor can glide smoothly and easily. Our Organic Shaving Cream is also formulated with Alpha Hydroxy Acid, or AHA, to help resurface the skin, prevent fine lines, wrinkles, and brighten any dark spots that may be due to scarring or ingrown hairs. 

As for shaving soaps, we like to look for similar ingredients that will moisturise the skin and provide a foamy lather. In our Cedarwood and Peppermint Shaving Soap Bars, we use hemp seed oil to help heal the skin and prevent irritation, and essential oils such as cedarwood to even out the skin tone, or peppermint to give your skin a fresh and tingly feel. For those who love a big, fluffy lather, or those who love to use a traditional shaving brush and razor set, our Glycerin Shaving Soap is the perfect choice. It’s deeply moisturising, glycerin-based formula draws hydration to the skin, and it offers a foamy lather. This is available in a convenient aluminium travel tin and you can then just purchase the refill bar when it is time to replace. 

After Shave:

Sometimes, using a good aftershave can make all the difference! The purpose of an aftershave cream or spray is to hydrate the skin and tighten the pores, reduce redness and inflammation, and soothe irritation. Ingredients like witch hazel, aloe vera, and different essential oils leave the skin feeling soothed and refreshed. Our Aloe Aftershave is formulated like a facial toner, so it’s easy to spritz on. We use cedarwood, frankincense, and sandalwood essential oils to even out the skin tone and leave behind a light, fresh scent. 

Using shaving products that are gentler on your skin result in a smoother shave with less irritation. Our skin is our largest organ, so it’s important to use products with ingredients that are good for it, and for the environment. Check out our website for all of our shaving favourites!
