Shea has amazing healing capabilities, but using it topically can sometimes leave an oily residue that’s hard to remove from the skin. We have done some testing (we love our jobs!) and have found that moisturizing in the shower and towel drying leaves the skin without that thick oily after effect and makes your skin feel freakin’ amazing – like the softest and silkiest it can be! This amazing shea butter moisturizer can also be used as a shave cream. Lather it on, shave, rinse and dry and marvel at just how soft your legs feel. No knicks, no razor bumps, just skin you’ll be happy to flaunt.

Shea Butter Shaving Cream & Moisturizer

This amazing moisturizer can also be used as a shave cream.


  • 1 cup shea butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp jojoba / almond oil
  • 1 Tbsp castile soap Dr. Bronners
  • 15 drops essential oil of choice we used peppermint (you can use vanilla, lavender, orange, cinnamon, lemongrass etc.)


  1. Combine shea butter, coconut oil, jojoba or almond oil until well combined in stand mixer, hand mixer or vigorously mix together yourself.
  2. Getting a whipped texture will usually take about 3-5 minutes, times do vary so just mix it to the consistency of your preference.
  3. Add soap and essential oil, mix for another 1-2 minutes.
  4. Store in a glass container and use as a shave gel or a shower body lotion. Rinse with warm water.

Recipe Notes

To use: Smooth a thick amount to skin in shower, shave as you normally would with soap or shaving cream. Rinse. Towel dry. (If you don’t want to use this as a shaving cream, smooth on skin after cleansing, rinse, towel dry.)

This mixture will get a little liquefied in a warm room like a bathroom (but don’t worry its still a wonderful recipe).

*Dr. Bronners castile soap can be found at a local health food store, in the health food department of your grocery store or ordered online.
