U.K. chemist David Somerset has been perfecting his shaving oils for 21 years. He uses 100% natural oils made from pure plant extracts. The oils lubricate the blade for a cleaner, closer shave, and their natural healing properties help prevent skin irritation.
Somersets Oils’ original formula combines a multitude of oils derived from plants such as rosemary, lavender, tea tree and sweet almond. Extra Sensitive Shave Oil adds rose hip seed oil and alpha bisabolol to help heal razor burn and protect sensitive skin, while Tough Stubble Shave Oil is infused with extra chamomile and tea tree oil to ease irritation and prevent razor bumps. Sandalwood oil and grapefruit oil are worked into the Women’s Extra Sensitive Shaving Oil. If you use just three drops per shave, a 15 ml bottle will last for up to 90 shaves and a 35 ml bottle will last for 260 shaves.
It might take a leap of faith to try using a miniscule amount of oil in place of conventional aerosol foams or gels. But if you’re like us, it won’t take much to be converted. You won’t miss the reddened skin and razor bumps.
