Choosing the Right After-Shave: A Look at the Benefits of Natural Products

Updated: May 10

After shaving, it's important to apply an after-shave. An after-shave moisturises your face and helps prevent razor burn and ingrown hair. However, many conventional after-shaves can dry out or irritate your skin and contain harmful ingredients like alcohol, chemical fragrances and synthetic preservatives. Fortunately there are many all-natural options available that won't dry out or irritate your skin, but will help you look your best after shaving!

Conventional after-shaves often contain alcohol

Conventional after-shaves often contain alcohol, which can dry out and irritate your skin. Alcohol is a drying agent that can also cause redness and irritation. It's not uncommon for people who use conventional after-shaves to experience breakouts or even develop dry skin as a result of using these products on their face every day.

Conventional after-shaves are made with oils and other ingredients that may be harmful to the environment if they're released into the water supply during production or disposal at the end of their life cycle.

Conventional after-shaves may also have petrochemicals

Conventional after-shaves may also have petrochemicals, chemical fragrances and synthetic preservatives. These ingredients can dry or irritate your skin.

The natural ingredients in Shaveman’s After Shave Balm are all-natural, which means they’re safe for your skin and less likely to cause any irritation. Our formula is also free of alcohol, so it won’t dry out your face like some other after-shaves do.

The benefits of after-shave products made with all-natural ingredients

The benefits of using all-natural aftershaves are threefold: they're better for your skin, better for the environment and better for you.

First, natural ingredients like Shea Butter, Cupuacu Butter and Camellia Oil moisturise and soothe skin instead of drying it out or causing irritation. Second, because they come from plants rather than chemicals found in many commercial products (like parabens), natural aftershaves don't contain any harsh chemicals that could potentially harm your body over time. Third--and perhaps most importantly--many people prefer not only the feel but also the smell of these products compared with their chemical counterparts; some even say it reminds them of being outdoors!

Many natural after-shaves are made with essential oils

Many natural after-shaves are made with essential oils that have anti-inflammatory properties to help you look your best after shaving. Essential oils are good for your skin, and many of them have been shown to reduce redness and swelling by reducing the production of histamine.

Many men choose an aftershave because they want to smell nice, but it's important to remember that not all fragrances are created equal. Some scents can irritate sensitive skin or cause allergic reactions in some people (like me!). If you're looking for an alternative scent other than cologne or traditional male scents like pine or sandalwood--or if you just want something lighter on the nose, there are plenty of options available when it comes to choosing an aftershave product:

A cruelty-free after shave is a sound choice

A cruelty-free after shave is a sound choice for those who wish to minimise suffering.

For one thing, it's better for the environment. The chemicals used in many commercial products can pollute water sources and harm wildlife. In addition, some synthetic ingredients may be toxic to humans and may cause allergic reactions or irritation of the skin or eyes when applied directly to them; others have been linked to cancerous tumours in lab mice (though not yet proven harmful in humans).

A cruelty-free after shave will contain fewer potentially harmful ingredients than its commercial counterparts, and if you choose wisely, no animal products at all!

All-natural after shaves often use organic ingredients

Since these products are made from all-natural ingredients, they're often better for the environment. Organic ingredients are grown without pesticides and chemicals that can pollute our air and water. Because of this, there's less of a chance that your aftershave will cause damage to the planet when you use it.

Natural products are also better for your health. Many of the chemicals used in conventional aftershave have been linked to cancer and other health issues. By using all-natural ingredients instead, you can avoid these potential dangers without having to sacrifice quality or performance.

Natural after-shave products are better for your skin

After-shave products are designed to soothe and moisturise your skin after shaving. But what if you could do more than just soothe and moisturise? What if the product that you used actually improved the health of your skin?

Natural after-shaves are better for your skin because they contain ingredients that help improve its overall health. Some natural products use essential oils like lavender, eucalyptus or tea tree oil which have anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce redness from razor burn or ingrown hairs.

Others use oils such as jojoba or coconut oil which provide deep hydration while locking in moisture so it doesn't evaporate as quickly as other types of lotion may do on hot summer days when you're going through a lot of grooming tasks (like shaving).

Choosing the right natural after-shave product

Choosing the right after-shave product is an important decision. You want to make sure that your skin is protected and moisturised, but you also need to consider what's in the product itself. For example, many men who have sensitive skin prefer a fragrance-free or hypoallergenic product because it won't irritate their face or neck. And if you're looking for something organic and cruelty-free, there are plenty of options out there!

It's worth noting that all these things can be hard to determine from reading labels alone; sometimes it takes some research on the part of consumers before they find what works best for them (and even then there may be no guarantees). In addition, many people find themselves asking questions about ingredients which aren't always answered by manufacturers themselves--so if this sounds like something that would interest you then we'd encourage taking advantage of resources like this article when making decisions about which products work best for your needs.


There are many benefits to using an all-natural after-shave product. The most obvious is the fact that it's better for your skin, but there are also environmental and ethical considerations to consider. When you select a cruelty-free after shave, you're helping animals by not contributing to animal testing or suffering in any way. And if you choose an organic product, then it won't contain any harmful chemicals or pesticides that can damage our planet's ecosystem!
