Why you should make your own natural, chemical-free shaving cream and how to do it


As we’ve shared with you numerous times, the toxins that our bodies come into contact with on a daily basis- just from personal care products alone- is staggering. And while chemicals might make life a little bit more convenient “they’re a major contributor to ill health, costing the U.S. more than $340 billion each year in health care costs and lost productivity. Impaired brain development, lower IQs, behavior problems, infertility, birth defects, obesity, diabetes, uterine fibroids, endometriosis and precocious puberty are just a sampling of the many health problems linked to exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs).”1


So, whenever possible, it’s great if we can lessen our toxic load. And one of the easiest ways to do that is to watch what we put directly on our skin- like shaving cream (and cosmetics- see the videos below).

Now I know not everyone has the time. And for those of you who don’t, there are small shop sellers all over Etsy who make shaving cream. (Although, in all my research on the topic, I discovered that most recipes revolved around some number of oils like Shea, coconut, almond, etc…and since that’s the case you could also just use my wonderful CBD skin serum, which would allow the razor to glide easily and be of benefit to your skin.) But for those of you who enjoy creating, check out the video I found below:

Just remember, it will last longer if you keep it dry so use dry hands or a scoop. And, oils will make the shower/tub floor slippery so be careful when getting in and out.
