The thing that I have never understood is why people praise these shaving creams from taylor of old bond st, Trumpers, DR harris? If you look at the ingredients they are all made with unadulterated chemicals and no essential oils. For trumpers rose and violet shaving creams, I saw "parfum" or fragrance.

Why is this tolerated. If the shaving cream says "almond" why doesn't it have almond oil as opposed to artificial synthetic chemicals?

The natural oil is probably too expensive. The same debate can be made for perfumes. Most are made with synthetic chemicals that smell like certain natural smells.

T&H, trumpers, and DR harris are all $30? that is weird that at that price, they cannot put essential oils in their creams. I have rose of bulgaria which has rose damascena distillate for their rose scented shaving cream. The Lather almond shaving cream has almond oil and it is cheaper than the british shaving creams.

How can we complain about the canned gel being gunk when we are putting chemical "cream" on our face that almost has the same ingredients has the gel that we so hate among us wet shavers?

Boyhood Restored

I believe that boys should use their time primarily to prepare for manhood. This group is for young men, dads, and other men who have opinions they'd like to share on how boys should grow up or be raised.
