Attempting to thicken my homemade liquid soap, I ended up with shaving cream instead. I call it a “Fortunate Flop”. Many other DIY shaving cream recipes involve mixing oils/ butters with a bit of soap. Having tried that approach, I was always left with a greasy razor and an oil-ring around my bathtub. It just didn’t work for me. This recipe, on the other hand, contains no oily residues, yet it is a moisturising and super foamy shaving cream that is unlike any DIY recipe you’ll find online.
