Certified organic to USDA National Organic Program standards, Dr. Bronner’s Fair Trade & Organic Shaving Gels are smooth and effective without any synthetic ingredients. Organic shikakai comes from the seed pods of the small South Asian tree Acacia concinna and has been used for millennia in India as a gentle conditioning cleanser for both skin and hair. We extract the organic shikakai in organic sugar and organic grape juice and combine it with our unsurpassed pure-castile liquid soap base for a soothing and moisturising glide along with superior hair lift and wetting. Our Organic Shaving Soaps are great for both men and women. Squirt a little bit of Shaving Soap onto your hands (about the size of a nickel) and rub them together for a good lather. Apply to face-underarms-legs and continue to rub soap into skin and hair, enhancing the lather and preparing skin for a good, clean shave. Works best right out of the showerwhen skin is moist and hairs are soft!
