What first attracted you to this wet shaving gig? Maybe it was the amazing scents and plethora of options. Maybe it was the old-school charm and mystique of a brush, bowl, and blade. Maybe your thrifty heart beats to the tune of kicking the expensive cartridges to the curb. Ah, it might have been those, but if you are like the majority of men, you were probably attracted to the natural, organic, soothing nature of these wet shaving products.
So, why organic / natural wet shave products?
If your life-before-lathering was a constant battle with razor burn, irritation, bumps, and redness, then you probably love these sensitive-skin loving products.
Organic / natural products are less likely to cause skin irritations and instead are skin-nourishing to leave you moisturized and soothed.
If you hate to load your body with parabens, artificial colors and fragrances, and unpronounceable ingredients, then buying these thoughtfully produced grooming essentials will light your fire.
Cutting out chemicals means cutting out ingredients that detrimentally affect your health. If you like to know where and how your shaving requisites are produced, then we have you covered with dozens of wet shaving products, artisans, and brands who love the earth (and a healthy body) as much as you do.
Delete the harsh chemicals / Add in natural goodness
So, you’ve deleted the parabens, phthalates, dyes, and petroleum-based ingredients that make up so many supermarket brands. Turns out, nature provides most of what you need to take care of your skin. (Who knew, eh?).
Herbs like rosemary, basil, sage, and ginger can provide stimulating, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties.
Unlike petroleum, oils like olive, coconut, sustainable palm, argan, and jojoba work with the skin’s natural processes.
Essential oils like lavender, eucalyptus, tea tree, peppermint and more provide aromatherapeutic effects as well as wonderful scents. And, of course, well-known aloe vera, shea butter, and glycerin provide moisture. Even beeswax, volcanic ash, and clays can be used to naturally enhance grooming products for hair, skin, and body.

Try our classic, much-loved aromas in skin-loving recipes.
- WCS Jojoba Shaving Cream, Pear-Brr Shoppe: Jojoba oil creates an absolute dream of a cream that explodes with lather to protect your face and nourish your skin. The unique aroma of sweet fruit combine with more traditional barbershop notes of geramium and oakmoss. Along with a hit of menthol, this is a icy, pear treat.
- WCS Shaving Soap, Barbershop: This tallow-based recipe was developed for us by Peter Charkalis. With its butters and oils, it creates a rich, protective layer AND nourishes your skin. The aroma of citrus, floral, musk, and a hint of talc might evoke a nostalgic, Main Street Barbershop.
