Other Shaving Essentials
Pre-shave products are available in several different forms such as oils, creams and gels. Preparation is the key to a good shave. Using a pre-shave oil, cream or gel ensures that the skin is suitably protected from the razor blade. It also increases razor glide and helps soften the whiskers of coarser, thicker beards. Especially popular amongst people with sensitive skin.
Traditional Shaving Creams & Shaving Soaps
Traditional shaving creams and soaps are usually formulated with Glycerin unlike canned creams you can buy on the high-street which often contain skin irritants such as propellants and parabens. Many of the traditional shaving creams and soaps that we stock contain ingredients that help prevent the skin from drying out during the shaving process and provide a vital layer of protection between the razor and your skin. They also form a rich, dense lather which softens the beard and protects the skin from irritation and razor burn.
The original aftershave was actually a stone, an alum stone to be precise. Alum is a naturally occurring substance that was originally part of every barbers equipment. Dab on the face after shaving to heal small nicks and cuts and close the skin's pores. A best seller still to this day.
