Green Your Shaving Routine: Best Natural Men’s Shaving Products

I’ve avoided shaving much of my adult life. The jobs I have worked at usually allow me to have a beard or some stubble. My sensitive skin is easily irritated by harsh chemicals. Razor burn was a constant.

With these natural and organic shaving products I noticed some improvements with my skin. By using a double-edged (DE) razor, like what John Wayne or Humphrey Bogart used in the classics, I noticed less razor burn when wet-shaving with it.

Wet-shaving with a DE or safety razor is what men did before the invention of the disposable razor. A DE razor takes a double sided razor blade, which cuts down on waste, and is so sharp you barely have to push down.

The results are impressive. Check out these natural or organic shaving products.

• Burt’s Bees Natural Shave Cream

This natural shaving cream worked well, though it produced much less lather with a brush than the other natural shaving creams. It had a slight wax fragrance. 4 out of 5 stars. 6-ounce tube: $8.
