Premium Shave Cream

This premium shave cream is a chassis for many possible shaving and grooming formulations. It is ideal for shaving legs, face, and sensitive areas. It can be used in an aerosol foam, cream, or gel format. This cream resembles popular shaving products in the EU and other countries with high environmental concerns, avoiding the use of volatile organic compounds such as those produced by aerosols. The emollient Phase, featuring Floraesters 30, provides slip and re-fatting of the skin during and after the delipidization that commonly occurs when dragging a blade across the skin surface. The weight of the residual after-feel can be modified by adjusting the amount of whichever emollient you choose to use. For example, replacing 1% of Floraesters 30 with 1% Moringa Butter provides a much richer after-feel.

The product also includes a unique moisturizing system combining Floraesters K-100 Jojoba with glycerin for fast and persistent moisturization, while soothing possible redness from shave irritation. Slip, conditioning, and final viscosity can be modified by changing the amount of Celquat SC- 230M. The product, despite it's richness, rinses off the blades quickly with a small amount of warm water. Lastly, a thixotropic viscosity profile allows for easier mechanical filling and a more stable cream in the finished product.
