Best citrus shaving soap
Citrus shaving soap can bring a zing to your wet shave! What better way to start your day than with a fresh and zesty shaving soap, enhancing your mood, reducing stress and anxiety.
Whilst we are not healthcare professionals, the use of citrus oils in shaving soaps is widely used to treat a range of skincare conditions such as dermatitis, acne and oily skin. Citrus oils also contain many antioxident properties, which relieve stress on the immune system. Limonene is one of the most commonly used ingredients in many shaving soaps and aftershaves, which derives from the peels of citrus fruits.
Ideal as Spring and Summer scents, choosing a citrus shaving soap can be evocative, uplifting and cleansing. Usually associated with the Mediterranean and warmer climates, lemon, orange, bergamot, grapefruit and lime are excellent citrus choices. At Agent Shave we have chosen our top citrus shaving soaps and creams:
