Why we stand behind it
This foaming shaving oil coats the skin with a light lather high in essential fatty acids to create a smooth shaving surface. Willow bark extract contains salicylic acid which penetrates deep into the hair follicle to soften hair, which allows the razor to glide easily across the skin. A slick glide reduces the risk of irritation, razor bumps or ingrown hairs, and diminishes the appearance of folliculitis (aka razor rash), a common side effect of shaving that results in small red bumps around hair follicles.
Willow bark: A beta hydroxy acid that decongests pores by dissolving compacted sebum and other debris in cells.
Sunflower seed oil: Crucial to proper barrier function, this polyunsaturated fat is high in omega 6 essential fatty acids which thin sebum and ensure a smooth application to the skin’s surface.
Decyl glucoside: A gentle non-ionic surfactant that creates suds without sulfates. Non-irritating to even sensitive skin types.
What is an undertone?
An undertone is the color beneath the surface of your skin, which never changes (even with a tan). There are three types of undertones:
I see red or pink undertones around the perimeter of my face and neck.
My skin burns easily, but barely tans.
My skin looks better in silver jewelry than gold.
I see both pink and yellow undertones around the perimeter of my face and neck.
My skin sometimes burns and sometimes tans.
My skin looks good in both gold and silver jewelry.
I see yellow or golden undertones around the perimeter of my face and neck.
My skin rarely burns, but tans easily.
My skin looks better in gold jewelry than silver.
