A natural - and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate Free - shaving cream designed to give you the best damn shave of your life!
After working closely with our clients to formulate the perfect shaving cream, we've finally got it! Our recipe combines the best qualities of our top-notch shaving soap with the comfort and convenience of a smooth, effective cream. And we did it all without using the synthetic ingredients found in large-batch, commercial creams!
It's all in here: moisturizers, ingredients to protect your skin, ingredients to help heal your skin, exfoliants, lubricants, ingredients to provide an effective and long-lasting lather, and of course ingredients to give you the closest, most comfortable shave you've ever had.
It took us a while to get here, but this is shaving perfection!
To use, apply to face and neck (or whatever you want to shave). If desired, create a lather first with a moist shaving brush or fingers. Shave normally and rinse. No need to wash your face afterwards, our shaving cream is full of ingredients that are great for your skin.
As with anything you put on your skin, discontinue use if rash or irritation develops.
Please note, because our primary surfactant (the ingredient that creates the lather) is natural castile soap, the temperature of your surroundings can impact the viscosity of the cream. If you live in a warm area you may want to consider the pump bottle to prevent spillage.
Our Ingredients (and why they’re in there):
Distilled Water - a natural base for all the other active ingredients.
Shea Butter - helps protect your skin against the harsh effects of shaving; helps kick-start the healing process
Coconut Oil - helps moisturize your skin
Olive Oil - with naturally-occurring Vitamin E, it serves as an antioxidant; lubricates your skin for a smoother shave; moisturizing
Emulsifying Wax - an emulsifying agent; vegan
Castile Soap (Saponified Olive Oil, Cocoa Butter and Coconut Oil) - added for its light lathering effect. Helps the cream rinse off more evenly when finished.
Apple Surfactant - Creates a thick, fluffy, long-lasting lather
Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda) - an exfoliate; helps stiffen hairs
Bentonite Clay - stiffens hairs for a closer, more effective shave
Stearic Acid - used as a thickener; vegan
Fragrance and Natural Essential Oil Blend – used in our scented varieties
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 shaving cream to prevent the growth of mold and bacteria. But who wants to use ice-cold shaving cream? All three preservatives are vegan too.

Great piney scent. It doesn't build a full lather, but it is slick for the shave.

As a multiple repeat customer, Roosevelt is my go-to for most all things shave, face cream and beard care related. Stop buying junk in stores, even those supposed specialty products. Try this stuff, you won't go back.

Soap didn’t lather very well for for me. I used a mild razor for this. Not sure I would use a more aggressive one. Very mild scent.
