Neals Yard Close Shave Cream – 140ml (£13.50)
As you’d expect, I’m not a fan of traditional shaving creams/foams with their synthetic foaming agents, fragrances, colourings and preservatives. This shave cream from Neals Yard however, ticks a lot of boxes. It doesn’t contain any SLS foaming agents, no propylene glycol or paraben preservatives.
The ingredients consist of a large amount of Olive Oil, Apple Juice, and Red Clay. Followed by extract of Yarrow and Lavender oil. It has the consistency of a grey clay, smells good and foams up well. Good slip and slide aids a sharp razor blade.
