This rich shaving cream contains non-drying castile soap so it suds up like a bar soap, but it also has a mixture of rich ingredients that soothe and nourish the skin. Add in a few drops of tea tree oil to help prevent bacteria from infecting the follicle and lavender oil to calm irritated skin. And last but not least, a good helping of coconut oil leaves you with perfectly soft, flake-free legs.

There is no need for alcohol or aggressive surfactants or paraffinic oils in a shaving cream, though if you take a look at the back of many commercial shaving creams you’ll see that they often include things you really don’t want on your skin. Natural cold processed soap bars are made from oils and are saponificated with NaOH and often are highly superfatted to prevent dry skin. Realize this recipe and you’ll see how soft and smooth your skin is after shaving, enjoy!
