For an all-natural, smooth and nourishing wet shave, choose this shaving oil.
This quality Dr. K product combines a variety of oils and vitamins to pamper the stubble and skin. This works in three stages.
Firstly Castor Oil is used to provide a protective layer, as human skin does not easily absorb this oil, it has the effect of providing a cushion, which results in a close shave that is non-irritating. Secondly Apricot Kernel Oil, which contains vitamins A and C (and essential fatty acids) is used to enrich the skin (or hair if you choose to leave some stubble behind). Finally Peppermint Oil, due to it's antispetic properties, gives the skin a fresh and clean feeling.
This product adheres strictly to EU cosmetic guidelines and has no artificial colours, fragrances or preservatives. Handmade in Ireland.
Instructions: For best results, wet the stubble and then apply a few drops prior to shaving. For a more complete explanation, check out our article on shaving with oil.
