To achieve a close shave, many men (and women) will tell you the secret is prepping with an oil first. For anyone with sensitive or dry skin prone to razor bumps, nicks, irritation or ingrown hairs this product is an absolute necessity. This blend of 12 organic oils, including eucalyptus, clove, castor, avocado, sesame, kukui nut oils and vitamin E enables razors to glide across skin while cushioning and protecting it. Male users report that it works excellent for detailing sideburns and goatees. Though comprised entirely of oils, the product is remarkably ungreasy and dissolves easily for washing off. Other than these oils, there are no essences or synthetic scents added for fragrance, making it ideal for those sensitive. Those who use oils to shave in lieu of gel or creams and love the benefit of seeing through the oil for a precise clean up. This is a great substitute to use by itself, since aside from the fact that creams and foams are synthetic and may be in the least eco-friendly packaging, animal fats or derivatives my be used as ingredients for the purpose of lubricants. So, this compact bottle that is ideal for travel can also be a multi-tasker.
