Our Aloe Vera-based OSCAR Natural Shaving Gel gives you an incredibly smooth shave without drying or irritating your skin. Unlike conventional shaving preparations, it does not contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), parabens, artificial colours or synthetic fragrances. SLS is a known irritant that is linked to basal transepidermal water loss, therefore we believe it has no place in a 'Moisturising' product.

- Apply to wet skin. Shave with a clean razor. Rinse and pat dry. You should expect a light lather rather than a thick foam; this is normal and will allow you to see where you're shaving!
