Comes with 1/2 bar of our natural soap
minutes ago, I just took my first shave with this new Tea Tree Shaving
Butter. I do not have razor bumps, but I wanted to see how it performed.
I used a razor that was on it’s last legs. It is ready to change. I knew
this would be a good test. After a few seconds I got the biggest smile.
I couldn’t believe how smooth the shave was. Even superior to our
regular shaving butter. I have a spot under my chin which I can only get
smooth with a fairly new blade. Yet smooth it is, amazing! Here’s hoping
we can help a lot of people with razor bumps.
Owner of Carley’s Clear & Smooth
We took our very popular shaving butter and added some interesting
I was listening to a local Doctor radio call in show. A Doctor I greatly
respect. Someone called in asking about razor bumps. He called it
Pseudofolliculitis Barbae. He also said there was another similar
condition called Pseudofolliculitis Pubis. I think girls who like to be
clean shaven down there know about this. His suggestion was to add in a
few drops of Tea Tree Oil to the shave cream. He explained shaving
causes tiny cuts to the skin. Surface bacteria and fungus can then get
into the skin, causing these small infections known as razor bumps. Next
time you shave, you are shaving these bumps. Even more irritation
occurs. Tea Tree essential oil stops these infections.
How would you evenly introduce the drops of tea tree into your shaving
cream? I immediately thought: why not make a tea tree version of our
popular shaving butter? But, I wanted to make it even better. If there
was any way we could calm the skin by using these herbs, this would be a
big plus. Aloe Vera is wonderful for this condition. We use fresh Aloe.
And Calendula is a go-to herb for calming the skin. As well as Hibiscus
We just super charged our shaving butter.
Razor Bumps are caused by curly hairs re-growing into the skin. These
bumps can become infected. These infections are due to each time you
shave you are injecting surface bacteria and fungus into your skin. Tea
Tree naturally controls bacteria and fungus.
We also recognized that your stressed skin needs to be soothed. So we
added in three valuable ingredients: Aloe Vera, Calendula, and Hibiscus
For quite some time I have been searching for the ‘right’ combination of
ingredients to make a superior shaving product. Little did I know the
missing ingredient was sitting in one of our refrigerators where we
store delicate ingredients in.
A lot of people know that shaving creams just don’t work that well.
Especially if they are like me and very easy to get a burn after a
shave. Recently several companies have come out with Shaving Butters.
Most of the time it is difficult to even find out what the ingredients
are. They brag about all the good extracts. Extracts typically amount to
only 1% or less of a product. I wanted to know what the other 99% of the
ingredients were. What we found, was these Shaving Butters are all
pretty much the same silicone based products that are in regular shave
creams, except a bit thicker. Silicones make things slick by leaving a
film. Unfortunately this film stays on the skin. In case you are just
discovering us, we don’t like silicones. (also known as dimethicone and
dozens of other names, silicones are in practically everything) We think
Silicones are ruining our skin and hair.
So how do we make a product that gives a super gliding action without
using silicones? And that helps the skin to be healthy? And not clog the
razor blade? Easier said than done.
When making our very popular hair conditioner, I noticed due to it’s
unique properties, it made a serviceable shaving lotion. Although it
tended to clog the blade. I decided what we learned from the hair
conditioner would help us develop a superior shaving butter.
I knew we couldn’t use Argan Oil because it absorbed too fast. We needed
a butter or oil that would lubricate the skin while shaving and slowly
absorbs into the skin after the shave was done. So there was no greasy
film. A high hurdle, we didn’t think we could find. Most butters tend to
be a bit gritty when they are in their solid form.
Looking for the missing ingredient. Many years ago, we had bought a
pound of a butter that comes from a tree in India called Mowrah. Its
nicknamed the Butter Tree in India. I just never got around to testing
it. So when I was working on the shaving butter I went through several
of our ingredients refrigerators to see if there was anything I had
missed. I decided to break out this Mowrah Butter to see how it might
work. Mowrah Butter is solid at room temperature. I noticed even though
it was cold, it immediately melted on my skin. And it had a silky
feeling unlike any other butter I had tried. I just knew immediately
this would be the missing ingredient. And I was right.
Oil and water don’t mix. Our bodies are over 65% water. Our skin is even
higher in water composition. Oils and water don’t mix naturally. So when
you apply an oil to the skin it just sits there. It feels like it is
absorbing into the skin, but it is just sealing the skin. Holding water
in. That’s why your skin will feel moist. You might as well use Crisco
How do we benefit from oils and butters rich properties? In order to get
the benefits of an oil or butter, it must absorb into the skin. For that
to happen the oil has to be part of a true moisturizer. That’s what we
do, make true moisturizers, unlike anyone else. It’s truly a lost art.
An artisan process that involves specific vegetable ingredients and
timed mixing at specific temperatures. Most moisturizers out there are
just oils and thickeners. Not what you want.
I have a terrible beard to shave. It seems to go all directions. And I
have tender skin that burns and cuts easily. And I like a close shave.
The only way to get a close shave is to shave against the grain. And
that usually causes me to have a razor burn, especially on my neck. I
have to keep shaving at so many directions in order to get all the
stubble. I have tried so many different moisturizers and creams and
soaps. By the time I get all the beard I usually have a burn. This was
the first product that didn’t.
So why don’t I get a burn? Not sure exactly, except the superior
lubrication properties of this butter. I just kept trying different
formulations until I got it just right.
And after several weeks of daily close shaves I still am burn free. And
here’s also what I noticed. My beard shaves easier (no razor drag) and
the skin where I used to burn (my neck) seems healthier.
What about our testing? Everyone we’ve tested it with loves it. It comes
in a jar and is so incredibly thick. A thin layer seems to be all that
Should I wash it off after shaving? You may if you like. I just leave it
on. It eventually absorbs and the skin feels super moisturized.
For women too? Why not? My wife loves it.
We first started offering skin care products in 1999. At first an acne
product. Then came our natural soap. At first we were asked to look at
moisturizers to see which ones we could recommend. We were horrified
when we saw practically all had awful animal ingredients, a myriad of
chemicals and were very acidic. Even the high end moisturizers were
pretty bad too. And everything carried incredibly long shelf lives.
Nothing you buy today was made recently. Usually years ago. I just knew
we could do better. Now we have ten’s of thousands of customers who I
believe would agree.
We’ve continued adding to our line because people are different and they
also need moisturizers for different situations, skin conditions and
skin types. Unless you have an identical twin, your skin has it’s own
unique skin chemistry.
Every oil and butter we work with has different properties. And
combining them will also change how they perform. The possibilities are
endless. Our goal is mainly just to solve skin issues and in so doing
earn your continued business.
Why pH neutral (balanced)? This is another reason our products are so
different. Just about everything out there for the skin is acidic. In
the beginning we wondered why? It used to not be so. Before this crop of
preservatives came on the market it was believed that most skin products
were pH neutral. These paraben preservatives worked remarkably well.
Long long shelf lives meant manufacturers could make huge batches and
just store them until sold. Of course they had to set their marketing
machine loose to tell us how good acids were for the skin. Because these
preservatives required an acid formulation. Since adult acne is a rather
new phenomenon, ask those adults with acne how all these acids are
working out for them.
Our bodies crave balance. Our blood is pH neutral, to slightly alkaline.
This fantasy about the ‘acid mantle’ was made up out of whole cloth to
sell these acid products. Think about it: if acids were so good for the
skin why does it feel so good to take a swim in the ocean? Which is the
opposite. Alkaline. Fact is, if pollution ever turned our precious
oceans acidic, most sea life would be dead. So why are we polluting our
skin with acids?
What’s in it?
Active ingredients: Tea Tree (Melaleuca Alternafolia), Aloe Vera (Aloe
Barbadensis leaf), Calendula Officinalis Flower, and Hibiscus Sabdariffa
Balance of ingredients. All are important.
Reverse Osmosis Purified Water: virtually all skin care
products ‘say’ they use purified water. But the real deal is reverse
osmosis purified water. This mean ZERO contaminants which means the
starting point is pure. It’s expensive to do (goes through 5 filters,
which have to be changed often), but it is the only water we use. We use
the waste water from this purifying process to water our flowers and
landscaping. So there is no waste. Don’t some products use distilled
water? Yes but distilled water is environmentally expensive to make
(heat is used to boil the dirty water and steam is collected). The
problem we have with distilled water is it has a lower pH due to the
extra ions added during the process. it’s very harsh. We prefer to work
with pH neutral water. To me there is no more perfect water than R-O
water. I remember the 1st time we made soap with it. As we poured the
soap it was so creamy! It looked like home made ice cream right before
it gets solid. It’s one of our special secrets to how good our products
are. Again, no one does this.
Mowrah Butter: (Bassia latifolia seed butter) Also known as
Mahua butter, it is derived from the fruit kernels of the Madhuca
(butter) tree, which is native of India. In India this butter has both
cosmetics and edible uses. It is known to reduce the degeneration of
skin cells, prevent wrinkles, and restore skin flexibility. Although a
solid at room temperature, Morah butter melts when it comes into contact
with skin. Mowrah butter is high in oleic acid, palmitic acid, stearic
acid and linoleic acid. Mowrah butter is regenerative and emollient.
BTMS (Behentrimonium Methosulfate Cetearyl Alcohol) This is a
vegetable wax. Sulfate and sulfur free.
Glycerin (Vegetable) Unless a skin care product specifically
says vegetable glycerin on the label, the glycerin they almost always
use contains animal derived glycerin. I won’t even get into describing
what part of the animal they use. Think of everything in a cow and pig
they cannot sell as food. Yes everything. EVERYTHING! Put it this way it
is a big joke in the cosmetic community how many vegetarians are using
animal based products and don’t know it. We weren’t laughing. We don’t
use animal derived ingredients because we just don’t know what is in
them. To increase their weight, they pump a lot of stuff into animals
right before slaughter.
Panthenol (2%) Pantothenic acid (Vitamin B5) is present in all
living cells in the form of Pantothenic acid
which is a constituent of Co-enzyme A. A deficiency in Pantothenic acid
results in dermatological and many physiological disorders. It is used
in many hair care products but also is easily absorbed by the skin. Well
known for it’s anti-inflammatory properties for professional skin care
formulations where it also acts as a powerful redness reducer even when
used at only 1.0%. Hmmmmm, redness reducer? Anti-inflammatory? No good
shaving product should be without it. Problem is… it is expensive. At
$15 a pound, manufacturers either don’t use it, or use just barely
enough to put it on the label. We use 2%. That’s a lot.
Cetyl Stearyl Alcohol (vegetable wax) this is a waxy vegetable
ingredient used to give the moisturizers a bit of heft and contact feel.
It also is a lubricant.
Allantoin: Allantoin is a naturally occurring nitrogenous
compound used as a skin conditioning agent.
Germall Plus (diazolidinyl Urea,
3-Iodo-2-propylbutylcarbarmate) (a vegetable derived preservative to
keep our product fresh) only needs 4/10’s of one percent to keep our
product safe. Look before you ask, no totally natural preservative
really protects products from bacteria. We don’t like using Parabens.
and since we pH balance our moisturizers we are limited in our choice of
preservatives. What’s great about this one is so little is needed to
Optiphen: additional preservative. anytime we use herbs in a
formulation we find many times it need a bit more preserving
Best if used within one year of receipt. I’ll bet no skin care product
you have bought from a store was made within the last year. Most of the
products were made years ago. We find we can better control our quality
if we make products as they are used. Fresh just makes for better skin
care products. Our families all use our products. We only sell what we
No animal ingredients or testing EVER! We also get assurances
from our suppliers that all of our raw ingredients are not animal
derived or any animal testing done there either.
Most skin care products you buy to use today, were made in large
factories years ago and have been in storage. Everything we ship was
made in small batches within a few weeks of shipping. Fresh matters!
Quality ingredients matter!
Most of our ingredients are as close to natural as possible. We avoid
overly processed ingredients. Processing means high heat and that
destroys the goodness in these precious ingredients we use.
We also include a free FULL SIZE bar of our Natural shea
butter non-drying soap with each jar. An $8.00 value if
purchases singly. This
Natural soap has to be tried to be believed. It is nothing
short of wonderful.
How much? $19.99 for 4 Fl. Oz. (59 mL). Free USA shipping.
You just need to use a thin layer to get a great shave.
Sorry but we do not ship to Italy, Maldives
