Shaving Cream: Dr. Bronner's Organic Shaving Gel, $8.99 "Shaving creams are notoriously toxic," says Spunt. "You can kind of imagine how many foaming agents and synthetic fragrances they would need, so there aren't a whole lot of options when it comes to natural shaving creams." And it's imperative that your shaving gel is natural, says O'Connor. "When you're shaving, you're in warm water with your pores open and vulnerable," she says. That coupled with a razor blade that's scraping off the top layer of your skin, applying a toxic shaving cream can be dangerous.
She says this product is a happy medium between using a "hippie" soap and a more mainstream shaving gel. Plus, the fact that Dr. Bronner's products are USDA-certified organic means that it is filled with super-pure ingredients, like white grape juice (an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory), and oils like coconut, olive, hemp, and spearmint.
