How to find better natural shaving products?
Here are some tips for finding more natural products. With the right information, you can save yourself from all the chemical nasties malingering out there. Follow these tips when purchasing items or ingredients to make it yourself. It really isn’t difficult to protect yourself and your family by using natural, organic, sustainably sourced and cruelty-free products.
Read the label:
This is a big one. Turn the product over and read the back. The marketing team knows consumers are focused on finding healthier alternatives. They may strongly advertise the fact that there is essential oil in the products when there may only be the smallest amount included! Very tricky.
First 5 Ingredients:
Producers are legally bound to list the ingredients in a product from the highest used to the least used. In any product, the first 4-5 ingredients make up the majority of the formula. Focus on these first listed ingredients and it will give you a good overview of the product as a whole.
Make it yourself:
DIY solutions are fun to create and can be customized once you know what you are doing. Include only the best natural ingredients and your skin will be singing!
Search for naturally sourced, moisturizing oils. Some favourites to make your skin soft and supple are: jojoba, coconut, olive, shea butter, cocoa butter, sesame, hemp seed, avocado, and macadamia.
Manufacturers have caught on that we don’t like nasties in our skincare products. Look for words like: No Fillers. No Artificial Fragrance. No Parabens. Not Tested on Animals. No Propylene Glycol.
Do some research for the man in your life, look up your favourite organic or natural skincare brand and see if they have also created a line of specialized men care and shaving products. It’s a good place to start the search!
