Shaving Creams are primarily used to help hydrate the skin while shaving. Razors can often lead to skin dry, rough and irritated. If your skin gets too irritated, the inflammation can often result in ingrown hairs. Try out this shaving cream recipe especially during the winter to help reduce inflammation from shaving.
Recipe for Shaving Cream
1/3 cup Shea Butter
2/3 cup Coconut Oil
2/3 cup Avocado Oil
1tbs Baking Soda
Several drops of your favorite essential oil
Melt the Shea butter and Coconut oil together. I usually fill a bowl with boiling water and use a measuring or mixing cup in the water to melt these. This can also be done in a double boiler.
Add in the Avocado Oil, baking soda and essential oil. Use a hand blender to blend until you get a nice creamy texture.
Place the mixture in the fridge for 15 minutes to thicken. Transfer this to a container to use when you are ready!
