After looking at the ingredients on a standard shaving cream bottle, it made me wonder why we put all these chemicals on our skin that leach into our body just to shave??
Palmitic acid, triethanolamine, isopentane, glyceryl oleate, stearic acid, isobutane, sorbitol, fragrance, hydroxyethylcellulose, peg-90m, ptfe, pefg-23m, propylene glycol, glyceryl acrylate copolymer, pvm/ma copolymer, green 3, blue 1
What? Really? I’m going to put all that on my body just to shave…
I did some research and development, and lo and behold nature has already provided us with a perfectly good shaving cream. It is called olive oil (coconut oil works as well) – nourishing and moisturizing to the skin, natural and not jam-packed with dozens of unnecessary chemicals.
You’ll need a new razor if possible because the olive oil tends to gum up the razor but it does work great. And now…not a chance I would ever use the factory chemical shaving cream ever again. Done, bye bye
