Free shaving cream

Hi all, before you get too excited this is something that i've made myself, i made a test batch and i've still ended up with enough to last me a year at least!

So what's in it, it's a tallow based shaving cream (sorry veggies), with all the usual, shea, coconut, macadamia oils and the only essential oils i had left were cinnamon and orange so it smells a bit Christmassy, so if you have any allergic reactions to any of the above then i accept no responsibility.

I'm a little short on tubs at the moment so if anyone does want some then i may have to post it in plastic bags.

Let me know if anyone is interested.

This is not a commercial venture btw, just a hobby, i'd love to hear any feed back though.

Thanks.

Also interested.

Is it a cream or a soap (or a croap)
I'm going for cream, it's probably a little softer than Proraso which i see as a croap but use as a cream.

Just PM me your address, may be next week at some point but i'll keep this thread updated.

Hi Bazz. Do you have a recipe or link to website. I quite fancy having a bash at home made shaving cream. Thanks, Jimmy

It's my own recipe mate, do you have soap making supplies in stock? it's not particularly difficult but if you haven't made soap before it's worth reading up on lye safety and the general process's as it can look quite daunting. I'll PM you the ingredients.

This sounds very interesting, I'd be up for giving it a whirl, thanks mate!

Hi bazz I have made coconut soap before. Melted a blender in the process. :(:cool:. It turned out ok. It was soapy and got the muck off me.
Appreciate the recipe. See if I can bugger up another blender, cheers. Jimmy
