Intrinsics Beauty Recipe: DIY Shaving Cream

Fellas, this one’s for you! Especially for those who participated in No-Shave November and are ready for a nice shave in December. 

We have already discussed the importance of oils and butters in a winter hair care routine and this recipe is no different! All you will need is coconut oil, shea butter, olive oil and essential oils for ingredients and a double boiler, a hand mixer, and a storage container for tools. 


Follow these directions when making your awesome DIY Shaving Cream: 

  1. Add the coconut oil and shea butter to a double boiler and heat over medium heat. 
  2. Once all the ingredients are melted, remove the bowl from the heat. 
  3. Add in the olive oil. 
  4. Once the mixture has cooled slightly, add in the essential oils. 
  5. Place the bowl in the freezer until it’s set up a bit (not too solid, though).
  6. Using a hand mixer or stand up mixer whip the ingredients together.
  7. Store in an airtight container.

Afterwards, be sure to follow up with a cleanse moisturizer that is suitable for your skin post-shave. You can, of course, cleanse with an Intrinsics Gentle Cleansing Towel and apply moisturizer with an Intrinsics Silken Wipe. After these follow-up steps, you’ll be clean and ready to go!
