I am one of those people who used to buy a LOT of shaving cream, simply because my hair tends to grow strong and I need to use a lot of shaving cream in order to get a smooth shave without cutting myself.
Well, you know how ridiculously expensive shaving creams are these days, here’s a great tutorial on how to make it yourself and screw the over-priced, shaving cream companies.
Here’s what you’ll do:
- In your double boiler, melt chunks of the glycerin soap.
- Stir in the sunflower oil.
- Move the mixture into a mug as soon as all of the glycerin chunks are melted.
This formula will set quickly. When you need to shave, simply work water against the soap until a lather builds and use it the same way you would regular shaving cream.
This is really similar to making soap by the way, well, a lot of glycerin for sure. Perhaps you can add some strips of menthol for “coolness” effect. I haven’t tried it but that could be a good idea.
