Nymphae's Shave Butter
6 oz in a glass jar with golden flower spoon. Best enjoyed within 6 months of purchase.
Nymphae's secret to silky smooth skin and a super close shave. A concentrated luxurious shave butter created with natural plant butters and oils, and infused with my handcrafted extractions of healing Jasmine, Labdanum, and Marigold. The scent is lovely, all three botanicals in harmony, creating a warm floral melange. Quanternized Honey conditions skin, Chamomile Derived Bisabolol prevents inflammation that can occur during shaving, and natural plant gums give the formula the perfect texture
This shave butter is a million times better than shaving cream or gel. I make this for myself because I don't like how shaving cream comes in an aerosol can, they really do nothing for me in terms of protecting against knicks and razor burn, and their lackluster ingredients, and overly synthetic fragrances aren't enjoyable for me. They also make my skin feel dry after shaving.
I decided to formulate this thick shave butter, and I've never looked back! It's very concentrated, and it's gel like texture helps it spread across and stick to skin. It has a high ratio of plant butters, making it very protectant and occlusive. I find it works best when skin is moist, opposed to dripping with water, it could even be used on dry skin, but is recommended to moisten skin lightly first with warm water or a hot towel to soften the hair follicle. I place a nickel size amount into my non-dominate hand, and apply in sections as I shave. The scent is heavenly.......jasmine and labdanum with a hint of calendula marigold fills my shower, it's quite delightful!
Razor bumps are dreadful in sensitive areas, and I haven't had any since I began using my own formula. I used to get knicks everytime I'd use a new razor blade, but this really protects my skin. Once I'm finished shaving, I grab my shower scrubbie and lather up the shaving gel-cream. It doesn't produce oodles of lather like my lucsious Bath Whips, but rather a rich, buttery, slippy low cream-like lather. I rinse lightly, and my skin feels lovely and conditioned. It allows for a close shave, leaving skin very smooth and moisturized.
