Shaving DIY – How to Make Your Own Shaving Cream!


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:

  1. In your double boiler, melt chunks of the glycerin soap.
  2. Stir in the sunflower oil.
  3. 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.
