In this post, we will explore the simple yet rewarding process of making your own shaving cream at home. With just a few ingredients, you can create a luxurious and personalized product that will leave your skin feeling smooth and moisturized.
In my house, we try to use as many natural household products as possible and that includes cleaning products, soap, deodorant, etc. Buying all of that natural stuff at the store can be costly, but it’s really pretty easy to make most of it at home. Which is why I’m sharing this DIY shaving cream recipe.
My boyfriend had been using a very chemically laden store-bought one, so I told him I would make him some. He wanted it to be just like the ones out of the cans that are nice and fluffy, so I’m glad I was able to “whip” this one up… pun intended!
This will last quite a while in the fridge, I think I’ve had mine last in the fridge for at least 3 weeks, probably more. What my boyfriend does is he keeps a few days worth in a jar in the bathroom for easy access and refills it from the stash in the fridge when it runs out.
How To Make DIY Shaving Cream
- 1 Hand mixer or hand blender
- Slightly heat the coconut oil and cocoa butter together in a double boiler so they melt, then put them in a bowl.
- Add the castile soap, baking soda and tea tree oil to the bowl. Then use a hand mixer to whip the ingredients. This will create a nice fluffy foamy shaving cream. You can also use a hand blender, but it may not be as fluffy, but it will still work.
