5 Reasons to Switch to a Natural Shaving Product for Men

Updated: May 10

Shaving is a daily ritual for most men, but it doesn't have to be a chore. While conventional shaving products can help to get the job done, they typically contain artificial fragrances and harsh chemicals that are better off avoided. Natural shaving products allow you to achieve a closer shave without causing irritation or affecting your skin's health. Here are five reasons why natural shaving products are worth trying:

1. Natural shaving products are healthier

Natural shaving creams, soaps and other shaving products are made with ingredients like coconut oil, avocado oil, jojoba oil, Shea butter and essential oils. A lot of these products can be purchased at health food stores or online directly from natural cosmetic brands.

The added benefits of natural shaving products include the fact that they're less likely to cause irritation or razor burn than big-brand shaving foam or gel products since they contain fewer chemicals that can irritate your skin while you shave.

When used correctly (i.e., not going over the same area multiple times), the lather of a natural shaving soap will also give you a closer shave than conventional gels because it's thicker in consistency, so it clings to your face rather than running down it, which means less passes over the same area are required for an effective shave without irritating sensitive areas of your face during each pass!

2. Natural shaving products promote men's skin health

Ultimately, the best thing about natural shaving products is that they are better for your skin and health. Natural shaving products are more moisturising, so you won't have to worry about dry or chapped skin. The natural oils in these products will keep your face hydrated throughout the day and help prevent redness from occurring after shaving.

Natural shave gels and creams also contain fewer ingredients than some other types of shaving lubricants or soaps on the market today. This means that there are fewer chemicals in them that could irritate your skin and cause an allergic reaction in some men (and women).

When all is said and done, switching over to natural shaving products can really improve men's skin health.

3. Natural shaving products are less irritating

The third reason to switch is that natural shaving products are less irritating. That's because they do not contain the harsh chemicals found in many mainstream options.

Natural shave soaps are produced with plant-derived ingredients and can offer an excellent alternative to regular soap or body wash. Natural after-shave balm is another healthy option as it soothes your skin while also reducing redness, irritation, and inflammation caused by shaving.

4. Natural shaving products are more environmentally friendly

You might not be aware that your current shaving products have a large carbon footprint. Shaving products are made from synthetic ingredients that require a lot of energy to make, especially the plastic packaging and containers.

In addition to having a large carbon footprint, many shaving products are not biodegradable. A lot of waste ends up in landfills as well as our oceans because these harmful chemicals cannot be broken down easily by nature.

Finally, many shaving foams and gels contain ingredients that have been tested on animals during development. This is unethical and unnecessary when there are already plenty of vegan-friendly alternatives!

5. Conventional shaving products contain artificial fragrances and harsh chemicals

Did you know that conventional shaving products contain artificial fragrances and harsh chemicals? These ingredients can cause irritation, allergic reactions, and dryness on your skin.

Natural shaving products are made with less irritating ingredients, so they're better for sensitive skin. They also tend to create a better shaving experience than big-brand shaving products because they don't contain artificial fragrances or the chemical preservatives found in conventional products.
