About Pacific Shaving Company:
In 2002, Stan Ades wondered if finding safe, effective and affordable shaving products was too much to ask. Inspired by the frustation of his daily shave, Stan Ades used his free time – early morning, lunch hour, post bedtime story – to develop a line of shaving products that would be moisturizing without being greasy; kind to sensitive skin but with enough muscle to conquer the heaviest beard.
Never would he leave the bathroom in a cloud of “morning rain” or “Irish fields” and no longer would he face a bulky, ring-of-rust leaving aluminum can of shaving cream or struggle with the waste it created. He could toss the small but mighty products (TSA-approved) in a carry-on or slip them in a gym bag. The subtle citrus scent would work for a man or a woman leaving chins, legs, underarms, even heads silky smooth. Today, Pacific Shaving Company offers a full line of affordably-priced, natural and eco- friendly shaving essentials that can be found in fine retailers across the country.
To radically improve the shaving experience. The result is a line of natural, eco-friendly and affordable shaving essentials that breaks through the barriers that give shaving a bad name. Their philosophy is simple: create shaving products that are good for the skin, good for the wallet and good for the earth. They also thought it would be convenient if they could be tucked into your carry-on bag for easy traveling (each product is TSA-approved, 3 oz or under).
Good for the skin
Made from a unique blend of natural, safe and organic ingredients, their products lubricate skin to protect it from razor burn and allow for an absurdly close shave. Instead of drying and irritating, theirproducts actually improve the quality of your skin, leaving it supple, moisturized and soothed.
Good for the wallet
Shaving can be a chore - and an expensive one, too. Their products are long-lasting (their1/2 oz. bottle of All Natural Shaving Oil will last up to 100 shaves) and affordably-priced for everyday use.
Good for the earth
Everyone wants effective, affordable products. At Pacific Shaving Company, they believe that sustainable business practices and environmentally responsible manufacturing are just as important. All of their products are manufactured in the USA and their small but mighty product sizes mean fewer raw materials, less waste (theirAll Natural Shaving Oil takes up 95% less space than those bulky cans of shaving cream) and fewer carbon emissions throughout the supply chain.
They also work to replenish the minimal packaging materials they do use by planting a tree for every purchase made - ultimately leaving a negative footprint.
1. Struggling with ingrown hairs? Less is more.
If your skin is particularly sensitive or prone to ingrown hair, consider stepping back from that four, five or six-blade razor you are using. That may be the primary cause of those unsightly and uncomfortable red bumps. Remember those razor commercials where they show each subsequent blade lifting and cutting the hair follicle lower to give you that super-close shave? Well, they weren’t lying. The problem for those prone to ingrown hair is that it may work too well. After multiple cuts, the hair follicle is below the surface of your skin. As it grows back, it begins to curl back under before breaking the skin. The result: ingrown hairs. Nowadays, disposable/cartridge two and three-blade razors get the job done, providing a close shave and lasting at least a week. Give yourself a couple weeks with fewer blades and you’ll see the difference.
2. Prone to razor rash? Cool it.
If you are prone to post-shave irritation and razor rash, consider changing your regimen slightly: shave with cold water instead of warm (best attempted out of the shower). Warm water opens up your pores and all that good stuff, but it also draws the blood closer to the surface of the skin, which can lead to redness and irritation.
3. Tempted to dry-shave? Resist.
They all find theirselves hurrying from time-to-time, but don’t dry-shave – even if you’re in a rush. You’ll get a jagged, coarse shave that will likely be uncomfortable and far from smooth. Even for quick touch-ups, splash some water on your face to soften/hydrate your hair follicle. Think of your whiskers like pieces of spaghetti. If you try to cut through it dry and uncooked, it results in a sharp, jagged edge. Cut through that same noodle once it’s cooked and wet and you’ll get much smoother results.
4. Go with the Grain.
Before shaving, take a moment to really look at the different directions of hair growth over the area to be shaved. Now shave with the grain. For a closer shave, take a second pass across the grain, but never against it. (Natural shaving oils or low-lather shaving creams are great for this because you can actually see where you’re shaving.) Resist the urge to take multiple passes over the same spots. One or two passes is all it takes.
5. What’s your product IQ?
The true measure of a comfortable shave is not about the razor, but ultimately the products you put on your skin to provide lubrication and protection. Do you know what’s in your shaving products?
We'll pretty much do anything to avoid checking the luggage. Whether we're off to Miami or Madagascar, checking bags is a leap of faith we're never excited to take. Will our stuff actually meet us in Boston, Bangkok, Berlin? Will our under things be untouched and our toiletries intact?
To avoid the unknowns of the checked bag experience, their line of shaving essentials is TSA-friendly, always 3 ounces or less. Totally cool for your carry-on. When packing for your next trip, pop an All Natural Shaving Oil in your briefcase or toss a tube of All Natural Shaving Cream in your backpack. Whatever you do, be sure to keep your shaving supplies close by.
