Razor Glide Shaving Oil 1 oz $25
Works wonders for both men and women on even the most sensitive skin. Razor Glide provides greater protection, smooth glide-enabling and superb moisturizing properties, giving you a closer, consistently smooth and irritation-free shave. The organic ingredients help eliminate razor burn due to its protecting ability and moisturizing effect without clogging pores, leaving your skin conditioned and moisturized, not oily. It applies clear, so you can actually see where you are shaving with no mess! Say goodbye to cuts and nicks!
Our shaving oil is a blend of vegetable oils or silicone oils and essential oils that can be used as a stand-alone shaving lubricant or as pre-shave underneath shaving cream, soap or gel, to facilitate shaving facial and other body hair. If a pre-shave is your preferred method, we highly recommend using it in combination with our Jagged Defense Shaving Cream. Often these products would work best by wetting the area before the razor being used.
The concentrated formula delivers a comparable number of shaves as commercial brands, up to 100 shaves.

Aloe Vera Cucumber Gel Recipe
This easy to make gel is suitable for all skin types.
Aloe vera gel benefits: Aloe is known for its penetrating ability to reach deeper layers of the dermis when applied topically to the skin. It has strong antiseptic properties to assist healing the skin. It rejuvenates skin by promoting cell growth. The neurologically calming effects of aloe vera soothe skin irritations, while its detoxifying properties help purify.
Cucumber benefits: The mild lightening properties of cucumber can reduce the appearance of dark circles under eyes, while the ascorbic acid in cucumber can decrease puffiness. Cucumber contains antioxidants, which fight free radicals that harm cells causing damage and premature aging, as well as silica, which is a trace mineral that contributes to the strengthening of our connective tissues. These properties can rejuvenate skin, leaving it feeling smooth and soft. The cooling effects of cucumber are a natural, gentle way to heal the skin.
Aloe Vera Cucumber Gel
1 part aloe vera gel
1 part cucumber, peel removed, roughly chopped (remove seeds)

1. Place ingredients into electric blender.
2. Whiz until well-mixed and smooth.
3. Smooth over face at bedtime and leave overnight.
4. Rinse off with warm water in the morning.
5. Keep in fridge for up to 7 days.
This gel also works as a quick, pick-me-up by applying for 10-15 minutes, then rinsing face.
What Are Natural Actives?
Quality skin care is a process of feeding our body and our skin the superior nutrients needed over time and keeping the toxin levels within the body as low as possible. When you use high quality, natural organic products, all the ingredients are active. They’re all beneficial and they all feed the skin.
Exactly what is a natural active? First we must define natural. ‘Natural’ skin care is not always natural. There are two definitions of the word natural. The dictionary defines it as: “Existing in or, formed by, nature”. We adhere to the dictionary definition to determine the ingredients we use in our products and only use ingredients existing in or, formed by, nature.
Unfortunately, many manufacturers in the cosmetic industry have strayed from that definition and consider natural to be: “Any ingredient derived from a natural substance”. Manufacturers commonly use the word ‘natural’ on labels, when the products are full of synthetic ingredients. We’re not saying that all synthetic ingredients are bad for you. In fact, there are natural ingredients, which may harm you as well. Poison ivy is natural, but would you want to put it on your skin?? Of course not. We place an emphasis on natural and organic ingredients that have a history of being good for your skin. Why use synthetics when natural and organic ingredients are truly effective?
Consider coconut oil. For example, Cocamide-DEA is “derived from” coconut oil”. It may well be from coconut oil, but a synthetic chemical called diethanolamine is used in the extraction process. It is known to cause cancer. An ingredient is not really natural if it has been processed in this way. However, extra virgin coconut oil is a wonderful and truly natural ingredient pressed from fresh coconut meat (not dried copra like commercial grade coconut oil, which is not edible until refined). Other ingredients like CoQ10 or B12 are truly natural and can be also be used, because they are created through a natural fermentation process.
Now that we understand what ‘natural’ means, we need to define ‘actives’. Active ingredients are those ingredients in nature that react with your skin to produce a positive effect. Ingredients that come directly from or exist in nature have more nutrients, vitamins, antioxidants and other beneficial properties – and are, therefore, more ‘active’. You find them in whole plant (and some animal) ingredients or plant extracted ingredients (such as herbs, essential oils, herbal tinctures/extracts, hydrosols, plant waxes, and unrefined carrier oils) . . . and they’re edible!
Take a look at our Ingredient List to read detailed descriptions of the natural actives we use in our skin care products.
