Part of a comfortable shave is using shaving cream that treats you skin well. Once been the most commonly used product to shave with, today shaving cream is hard to find. The market seems to be dominated by shaving gels and foams. Not because they are any good, but because they are easy to find and use. I have always been using shaving creams because of three important properties that are unparalleled.
1. Amazing lubrication to protect the skin
A good quality shaving cream has a high fat concentration, mainly in the form of natural oils which do not penetrate the skin. These oils protect the skin in the form of lubrication, making it easier for the blade to glide along the skin surface to cut the hair without dragging the skin.
2. Moisturizing properties to soften the beard
A good shaving cream contains glycerine derived from natural oils. Glycerine has a humectant property. It locks the moisture to keep the skin hydrated and surrounds the hairs with a humid environment making them easier to cut.
3. Emolliating the skin, allowing it to recover
Most shaving products contain artificial colourings and preservatives. These substances can irritate and dry out the skin. Good shaving creams do not contain any of these, or other substances (e.g Parabens and SLS) making them perfect emollients. They soften and sooth the skin, allowing it to recover after the shave.
Using shaving cream is an easy way to upgrade your shaving comfort. If you have any questions left about shaving cream after reading this, contact me on FB or Twitter.
