Shaving cream is an annoying fact of life if you want to avoid painful or itchy red shaving bumps. But, if you are someone who is trying to be zero-waste or who simply don’t want to buy something that isn’t natural, making your own shaving cream at home is super easy! This is great for both men and women, so once you make it you can give it to all of your friends! Follow these steps and you can have smooth skin without having to sacrifice your beliefs.


For this DIY shaving cream, you will need coconut oil, shea butter lotion, olive oil, and castile soap. Optionally, if you want to make your skin even stronger and smoother, add vitamin E oil. If you want any type of scent, put in any essential oil you’d like.


  1. Melt the coconut oil and shea butter together over medium heat
  2. Add in the olive oil and stir well
  3. Finally, add in the castile soap and any additional oils and take off the heat
  4. Pour into a bowl and let cool
  5. Use an electric hand mixer and whip the mixture together until foamy
  6. Store in a container or jar in a cool dark place
