A few 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.

We took our very popular shaving butter and added some interesting ingredients.

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 flowers.

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 Flowers

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 shortening.

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 is needed.

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 Flower

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 afford protection.

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 would use.

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 and many parts of Africa at this time due to difficulties experienced with their customs and post office. Please be aware: Russia and India are currently experiencing longer shipping times.

5 of 5 So great for shaving! December 4, 2021
Reviewer: Brittanie from TX United States  
I have used both shaving butters, but I have sensitive skin, so I am thankful for this one. It really works. The smell is a little odd, but it doesn't last. It goes on like a thick (butter) lotion. It does dissolve quickly in water too. I love this and it lasts about 3-4 months for me.
