The organic shaving cream we have created is specifically designed so there is no need for a pre shave product. The natural ingredients give you a silky-smooth shave with no after shave irritation. The combination of shea butter, hemp seed oil, jojoba oil, safflower oil and coconut oil blend beautifully to create a rich cream that spreads evenly over your skin, softens your hair ready for shaving and afterwards leaves your skin feeling incredibly moisturized.
We chose to use Cedarwood essential oil because it is an antiseptic, tonic, astringent and fungicidal. It prevents wounds from becoming septic and is even used as an ingredient in herbal antiseptic creams which is why it is fantastic in our shave cream formulation. It reduces inflammation and itching on the skin which is very beneficial for this process.
We chose to combine the Cedarwood with Lemongrass as this combination smells so refreshing and together with the benefits of both oils it’s a perfect blend. Lemongrass is an analgesic which reduces pain and inflammation. It has antimicrobial properties which make it an inhibitor of microbial and bacterial growth. The antiseptic properties of lemongrass oil make it a good application for wounds as well as a useful ingredient in antiseptic lotions and creams and may be used to treat fungal infections and prevent cuts and wounds from become septic. It has great soothing effects, reduces inflammation and irritation of the skin. Lemongrass oil has been widely praised for its analgesic, antimicrobial and astringent effects. These are the reasons we felt both these organic oils were an essential combination in our shave cream not to mention its incredible scent.
