Making your own shaving cream is a great alternative to buying commercial ones, especially when you’re not a fan of aerosol cans (despite them being recyclable, they’re not entirely easy to reuse) and mineral oils (which can irritate the skin and cause breakouts due to clogged pores despite the silk-smooth moisturizing effect they have).
So, for this post, we’re sharing with you a super easy 3-ingredient shaving cream recipe that you can easily whip up within 20 minutes and with only 4 steps! The base for this shaving cream is none other than Stephenson Personal Care’s Crystal OPC aka Foaming Bath Butter or Sugar Whip. It’s a brilliant and innovative base that is rich in glycerin, produces a creamy and foamy lather, and is paraben and MPG free. Moreover, it can be used for both face and body due to it’s mild formulation and is confirmed as non-skin-irritant by Zein test.
