Best Hair Remove Cream for Mens

Cream / December 31, 2016

Shaving cream works the best, smells the best, and feels the best when it's made with 100% natural ingredients. With a little research, you can find plenty of natural and additive-free creams (think: no parabens, no gluten, no sulfates, no animal products, and no animal testing) that will give you a close, clean shave and at the same time nourish your skin.

Many natural shaving creams can easily be found in drugstores and grocery stores. And while they may be a bit more expensive than some conventional shaving cream products, you're definitely getting more for what you pay for—and your skin will thank you for it.

Choosing the Right Shaving Cream for You

Whether you are a woman or a man, when choosing a shaving cream, you want to look at what is in the product just as much as you want to look for what is not in the product. Here’s a general rule of thumb: If you can actually pronounce most of a product's ingredients, and it doesn’t contain the word paraben, phthalate, or sulfate, then you're probably on the right track. For optimal skin and hair health, be on the hunt for shaving creams that contain natural compounds such as these:

  • Shea butter: Full of essential fatty acids, vitamins, and trace minerals (such as copper and sulfur), this luxurious African tree extract is guaranteed to leave your skin moisturized and smooth no matter how many blades your fancy razor has.
  • Willow bark: The extract from this tree is a natural source of salicylic acid. It is a natural exfoliant and astringent, stimulating cellular repair, relieving inflammation, clearing pores, and healing acne and other blemishes.
  • Kelp extract: The same phyto-nutrients, amino acids, trace minerals, and antioxidants that benefit this seaweed will benefit your skin and hair, too. It helps to detoxify and cleanse your pores, stimulate healthy blood flow to your skin, and revitalize your hair follicles.

Other go-to favorites to maximize your daily shaving experience include essential bergamot orange oil, essential grapefruit oil, green tea extract, aloe, and argan oil.

Look for shaving creams that are easy to use, smell great, and gentle on your skin. For best results, be sure to lather an even layer of natural shaving cream all over the target area. Always use a clean and high quality razor or blade, and be sure to rinse the razor regularly throughout your shave to remove excess cream, hair, and dead skin cells.

Whether you're looking to banish that five o'clock shadow or get smooth and supple legs, be sure to keep a high quality natural shaving cream in your toiletry arsenal. Your face, your skin, and even your significant other will thank you!

A New Age of Natural Skin Care

Shaving without a proper moisturizing lotion can increase your risk of scrapes, cuts, ingrown hairs, and skin infections. These problems eventually drove leaders in the natural skin and hair care industries to formulate men's shaving creams (and eventually women's, too) that would deliver that clean-shaven look while also leaving you feeling smooth and hydrated. However, these were not the only reasons.
