How to make DIY shaving cream:

Cocoa butter and coconut oil in a bowl.
  • Step 1. Place cocoa butter and coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 20 seconds and stir well.

    Return to the microwave and stir for 20 seconds, continuing to stir until all of the cocoa butter is melted. This may take a minute or two.

    Be careful to not cook it too long. You will want to keep a close eye on this as microwave times do vary. I wouldn’t walk away while as it’s heating because it is so easy to burn.

  • Step 2. Stir in almond oil, baking soda and essential oils. Remove the spoon from the bowl and refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until mixture is solid, the consistency of Crisco. This step helps the mixture to form into the desired consistency.

How to use Natural Shaving Cream:

  • Wet your skin and grab a small handful of shaving cream, about the size of a quarter. It does not take much at all so use sparingly. Smooth this shaving product onto your skin and shave as normal.
  • You’ll find a little shaving cream goes a long way. This natural shaving cream lasts forever! This won’t foam like typical shaving foams, but it will coat your skin well.
  • You may find that you don’t need to reapply.  You can most likely go over your skin 2-3 times and not need to add any additional shaving cream.
  • Rinse before towel drying. Make sure you have removed all the cream and rinsed thoroughly.
  • Just remember to be very careful as this will leave your shower and bathtub very slippery!

How to store all natural shaving cream:

We used small mason jars. The jelly jar size is perfect.

Plus, you can reuse them to make more. Trust us, you are going to love this so much that you will make more.

How long will it last?

It should last several months as long as you store it properly and don’t allow any water to get inside.

Tips and Tricks

  • Melt the coconut butter in increments. It is important to melt the cocoa butter in increments, so it does not burn. Keep a very close eye on this as microwave times vary. You do not want to overcook this.
  • Almond Oil substitutes. You can also use olive oil or jojoba oil.
  • Essential Oil. Lavender works great but feel free to use your favorite essential oil.
  • Organic ingredients. Try to use the best quality ingredients that you can. Many plant based options are available if you prefer.
  • Shea Butter. This can be used instead of coconut butter if you prefer.

  1. Hello there, is there an alternative to baking soda in this recipe? Only asking, because I appear to be allergic to it 🙁

    1. The baking soda helps remove oils from the skin which allows the razor to cut better and also helps reduce skin irritation. Thank you!
