Our Shave Cream Bar has a special blend of natural ingredients that creates a thin layer of protection between your skin and the razor blade. The less friction you have, the better your skin will feel. Friction leads to razor burn, cuts, skin irritations and redness.
The Salt, Oatmeal, Green Tea Nettles in the Tangie Shave Cream Bar exfoliate your skin to remove the dead layers of skin. Every 30 days or so, your skin naturally sheds dead skin cells to make room for new cells although sometimes, the dead cells don’t shed off completely so we need to give them a little push. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, exfoliation can leave your skin looking brighter and enhance the absorption of topical skin care products. It is also a good way to reduce ingrown hairs and prevent clogged pores.
The use of Bamboo Charcoal and French Green Clay in our Shave Cream Bar is like a magnet to the dirt and oil that clings to our skin everyday and removes it from out of your pores and off of your skin. Cleaning and firming as they work, they then allow the Marshmallow Extract to make a silky surface for the razor to glide across, eliminating irritation while providing instant hydration to continuously improve the skin’s ability to retain moisture.
The specific blend of essential oils adds to the aromatherapy properties of the soap but they each have a job to do as well. Cypress Essential Oil strengthens the structure of the skin to help firm and tighten. Not only will the Wild Orange Essential Oil uplift your mood and energy levels, but it is also known to be antiseptic and anti-inflammatory increasing collagen production, and blood flow.
The antibacterial properties of Black Pepper Essential Oil make an effective skin-purifier. When bacteria is removed from the surface of your epidermis, your skin will thrive!
It is a real team effort, all of these ingredients working together to give you bright, soft, and healthy skin.

From the founder:
For as long as I can remember, I have had sensitivities to many store bought products. I realized that certain ingredients would probably be the cause of the problem. So, I began creating my own waste free product “recipes” for body and household use. In the beginning, I wanted to clean my windows naturally… without harsh chemicals. I did some reading and researching. The first old school formula I found that made sense was vinegar and water. Wow! Clean windows without chemicals!
Then I began reading about petroleum-based ingredients. I didn’t need a degree in rocket science to figure out that I was wearing those petro-chemicals everyday. Yuck! Gross! Plastic Free Laundry soap was my next “product”.
My first recipes were straight off the internet. You’ve probably seen it; the Borax, Washing Soda and Fels Naptha soap. At that time, according to the internet; that was how to make “natural plastic free laundry soap”. Natural soap with man made chemicals? No! There had to be a better way. What did people use to clean their clothes a long long time ago? I researched and read everything I could find regarding natural ingredients and clothes cleaning. Finally I came upon real natural ingredients. I’m talking yucca root, hazelnuts and soap nuts. Yep, I would start washing my clothes with nuts and berries.
For 1,000’s of years before me, that’s what people did to get clean clothes. My interest was as high. I scoured the internet and library for details. What I was learning would eventually hone my eco-skills and turn me into a daily eco-warrior.
The more I learned, the more I reworked my formulas! It felt good putting the ancient and eco-friendly cleaning ingredients to use. I formulated and tested. Load after load. Small changes… big changes. When finally, I did it…no more borax or washing soda…or Fels Naptha! The new formula worked. I worked on white clothes and clothes with color. It worked on clothes made of all types of fabrics. The clothes emerged from the washing machine like a Phoenix rising from the ashes — ok, so maybe it was more like a clean shirt emerging from the dryer.
The formulation worked and it was here to stay!
I am extremely proud of my efforts to get a liquid laundry plastic free laundry soap into a concentrated paste form. There is nothing like these products on the market.
All of these waste free products do the job – without harsh chemicals.
No excess water weight!
No excessive plastic containers to throw away each month.
The effectiveness and affordability is awesome.
Everything I mentioned applies to all of our products. We guarantee 100% waste free and plastic free products.
