Post Shave Balm - Alcohol-Free with Witch Hazel and Aloe


Shipping to United States: Free

Treat your skin right with our luxurious, alcohol-free balm. Our unique blend is formulated to cool and soothe as it hydrates and heals.

Organic aloe vera juice, olive oil and jojoba oil provide a pure, healthful foundation upon which we've added witch hazel extract to soothe your skin and help prevent razor burn.

A blend of natural essential oils were then added complement the effects of the aloe and witch hazel, including a touch of menthol-containing peppermint and eucalyptus essential oils for their cooling properties, and tea tree oil to help kickstart the healing process.


To use, apply to skin with moist hands after shaving or any time you want a relaxing, rejuvenating, hydrating experience.

As with anything you put on your skin, discontinue use if rash or irritation develops.


Our Ingredients (and why they’re in there):

Distilled Water - a natural base for all the other active ingredients.

Olive Oil - with naturally-occurring Vitamin E, serves as an antioxidant and excellent moisturizer

Witch Hazel Extract – has astringent properties, helping to shrink your pores and letting your skin begin the post-shave healing process. Also acts as a powerful antioxidant while soothing and healing your skin

Organic Aloe Vera Juice – contains antioxidants, enzymes and vitamins to help reduce razor burn, prevent breakouts and dry skin, and soothe irritated post-shave skin.

Vegetable Glycerin – an all-purpose moisturizer compatible with all skin types - including oily skin – it attracts moisture to your skin and helps hydrate, making it feel soft and supple.

Polysorbate 80 – an emulsifier derived from sugar alcohol and vegetable fats. It helps stabilize oil and water mixtures.

Jojoba Oil - from the simmondsia chinensis plant, native to the western United States. It's a great moisturizer and is chemically similar to the natural oils in your skin allowing it to absorb quickly, and help prevent razor burn and promote healing.

Emulsifying Wax - an emulsifying agent; vegan

Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) – in addition to helping balance the PH of the final product, vitamin C has antioxidant properties.

Propylene Glycol, Diazolidinyl Urea, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate - these three are used in very small amounts as a preservative. Without them you'd have to refrigerate your post shave balm to prevent the growth of mold and bacteria. But who wants to use ice-cold aftershave? All three preservatives are vegan too.

Vitamin E Oil (Tocopherol) - an antioxidant that nourishes skin and hair. Also helps keep the other ingredients from oxidizing.

Grapefruit Seed Extract - derived from the seeds, membranes, and the pulp of grapefruit. Has minor antimicrobial and antioxidant properties.

Fragrance and Natural Essential Oil Blend – used in our scented varieties

Natural Peppermint/Eucalyptus/Tea Tree Oil Blend – this blend is added for its soothing and cooling properties. It also helps reduce redness and swelling.

This shave balm is the very best that I've ever used. I get "Syracuse Citrus" and will only use it from now on. Quality ingredients and the feel of my skin after using it is amazing. Thanks Adam you killed it with this formula.

I have sensitive skin and find that a lot of aftershave burns, but this works really well for me. Not too heavy while still being moisturizing. The smell is great, but is fairly light/fades pretty quickly (which I like, personally).
