Aftershave Rub: A Switch to Zero Waste, Naturally Good Shaves

Aftershave Rub: A Switch to Zero Waste, Naturally Good Shaves


What’s in your aftershave? Basically, its main ingredients are an antiseptic, a moisturizer and a fragrance. It’s used to soothe, moisturize and scent your skin after a good shave, but it can actually do more for you. Also, alcohol-based aftershaves have always been around. But can an all-natural, vegan aftershave be better for you in the long run? A big yes! Find out why. 

Protects Without the Sting

Keeping your freshly-shaved skin in your face or legs from infection is one main goal of a reliable aftershave. Most regular brands contain alcohol-based ingredients to sanitize and seal the opened skin, and they certainly do instant bacteria- and germ-killing actions. But they don’t just end with a little sting. Over time, alcohol can bring some drying and damaging effects on your skin. So how can you avoid the alcohol sting? It’s a call for plant-based solutions.

Our vegan Aftershave Rub is made with Babassu Oil that provides anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. You can have the same level of protection without the sting and drying out your skin. It also has Hemp Seed Oil that is anti-inflammatory and rich in antioxidant. These can help your little cuts heal safely and fast. Rosehip Oil then helps the skin to regenerate and heal so you can avoid razor burns, razor bumps and breakouts. 


Shaving may cause some little cuts that may expose parts of your skin. Aside from disinfecting, it is also important to keep them from drying. Our vegan aftershave contains Shea Butter that hydrates, smooths, and soothes shaved skin, and Candelilla Wax that effectively locks in moisture. To nourish a freshly-shaved skin, it has Grapeseed Oil that is rich in antioxidants and can help even out the skin tone. More, Olive Oil in this aftershave rub helps protect your face against free radicals and sun damage, keeping it young-looking. 

No Chemical, only Natural Fragrances 

Another thing that we may love about aftershaves are the unique scents they leave on our skin. But, how these “fragrances” or “scents” are chemically concocted or what their formulas are may not be clearly reflected on the label. Chemicals in these forms may bring certain reactions to some sensitive people, such as dizziness, headaches and breathing difficulties. So, again, a plant-based aftershave is the better option. 

Among our Aftershave Rubs, you may choose the unscented NAKED. We have also created special scent variants from natural essential oils with their plant-powered benefits, namely:
