Shaving gel is synonymous with commericals of freshly showered women coming out of the shower with soft, smooth skin. Since these commercials often advertise non-cruelty-free brands, one may assume that the only way to get a smooth shave is with one of these products. However, there are an abundance of high quality, cruelty-free, all natural shaving products available for the compassionate consumer to enjoy.
Surya Brasil is a Leaping Bunny certified lifestyle brand that creates a wide variety of personal care products including henna color, hair care, skin care, and cosmetics. Amongst their body care is the Sapien Women's Shave Gel. It contains exotic organic Amazonian ingredients including cupuacu butter, pracaxi oil, macadamia oil, aloe vera juice, and Vitamin E. Additionally, it is free of BHT, EDTA, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and synthetic fragrance. The result is a gel that applies super smooth on the skin and provides the perfect surface for shaving. The formula is very hydrating and perfect for sensitive skin. Although the website says the scent is a tropical mix of coconut and mango, I smell more of a citrus fragrance, which is very lovely. This shave gel is a great addition to your everyday shaving routine.
