Shaving cream is a very familiar ingredient by the men for comfortable facial hair shaving. A great shaving cream can make your shaving enjoyable while a bad one can make you scared. All the manufacturers make their shaving creams with many chemicals and natural ingredients. Most of the chemicals are very harmful to facial health and need to avoid. But some manufacturers really make their creams considering the harms of chemicals.
We should not verify the product is good or bad seeing the smell or its outer coating. In order to buy a shaving cream, you must keep three things in mind.
Our skin is usually of three types – dry/oily/sensitive. When buying a shaving cream, you must buy according to your skin type.
If your skin is sensitive then don’t buy any cream that has astringent but if your skin is oily, then buy the cream that has astringent because it reduces the oil.
If you have dry skin then buy a cream that contains glycerin. Glycerin helps to easily glide the blade over the skin without any scratches.
Ingredients (to avoid)
If there are some ingredients in shaving cream to avoid-
#Parabens – parabens are usually used in various skincare products to prevent bacterial growth. But it is very harmful to our skin because it may cause asthma or allergies. There may also be more serious problems.
#SLS – the full meaning of SLS is- sodium lauryl sulfate. Usually, SLS helps to insert other chemicals inside the skin. SLS is very harmful to our skin even if is a known skin irritant and also an eye irritant.
However, it has many harmful effects on our skin.
#SLES – SLES stands for sodium lauryl ether sulfate, this component is an additive that enables cleaning products to foam. It is also so harmful to our skin – such as organ toxicity.
#Fragrance – most of the skincare products use fragrance but it is prepared through 3000 chemicals. So it is better to avoid it.
