The Sudsy Soapery Lemon Rose Chypre Aftershave Balm, 2oz
Here is the artists presentation of the scent -
"This traditional chypre fragrance features an unexpected twist. The notes of lemon, ruby red grapefruit, natural rose essential oil, labdanum and oakmoss form the chypre structure, but a note of Nepalese palmarosa provides a bridge between the green oakmoss notes and the citrus top notes. Additionally, a dash of zesty ginger root shavings add a zesty undertone to the citrus to add a new twist to a traditional scent structure."
When we set out to make a shave balm here at The Sudsy Soapery Natural Products,™ we searched through many other shave balms and consistently found that the ingredients in these balms were petroleum based or contained some sort of chemical that was not naturally derived. For instance, Emulsifying Wax is commonly used in balms and lotions to emulsify (combine the water to oil into a solid state) the formula. However, most emulsifying wax is petroleum based and although petroleum has a very low comedogenic rating, it stays on top of the pours creating a barrier that keeps out air, water and anything else that might help the pores to breathe healthily.
We started with the base oils, oils on the face you say? Yes! Oils on the face! It is the best option you have and even the ancients used it. In fact, there is a reference in the Bible, in Psalm 104:15 “And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengthened man's heart.” There are oils that, when used properly, slow down the aging process of the face, creating a fountain of youth as it were. With the proper comedogenic rating, oils will moisturize without clogging the pores.
So, we started with Hemp and Mango oil, two of the “less greasy” oils that allow your pore to breathe creating an immense moisturizing and skin protecting wonder! Then we added Organic Witch Hazel directly from one of the leading manufacturers of the products in the world. Witch Hazel is an astringent which shrinks and constricts body tissue. In short, it may aid in the bleeding, cuts and abrasions one might experience during there shave.
To all of this we add Glycerin that helps moisture retention on the skin and Vitamin E and Grapefruit Seed Extract to preserve this aftershave balm naturally.
Our purpose here at The Sudsy Soapery Natural Products™ is to do what others have tried and do it again thinking about the skin from a healthful and sustainable perspective. This is why we are presenting to you our natural philosophy as it pertains to our post shave wonder creamy aftershave balm which comes as a complement to your shaving routine, free of chemicals!
