Preparation method:
Add and mix the peppermint water with the glycerin in a glass. The solution should be at room temperature or slightly warm.
In another glass add the Cocamidopropyl betaine powder. Over the surfactant add the solution obtained previously, mix a little and leave to rest until the powder has completely dissolved. Stir occasionally to facilitate dissolution.

Over the clear and homogeneous phase A, the ingredients of phase B are added one by one, with thorough mixing after each one. The solution thus obtained is transferred to the dedicated container.

A frothy solution, with a fresh and pleasant scent. It forms a light and creamy foam that softens the hairs and facilitates the sliding of the blade. Contributes to easy and comfortable shaving. Apply on damp skin (or even on dry skin) and massage to help the softening of the hair. After shaving, the skin is rinsed with lukewarm or colder water, according to preference. Shake the bottle before use.

Fragonia essential oil is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and purifying. Peppermint water is refreshing, cools the skin and finely perfumes the solution. Cocamidopropyl betaine powder is an ingredient that produces quality foam, is moisturizing, smoothing, does not dry the skin and is well tolerated even by sensitive skin. The Decyl glucoside provides abundant foam and is also very well tolerated by the skin.

Options:

  • instead of peppermint water you can use witch hazel water, or, for sensitive skin, melissa or linden water
  • instead of fragonia essential oil, you can use another essential oil chosen according to your preferred properties and smell, or you can remove it from the recipe
