Eucalyptus Extract / Eucalyptus Oil 

Eucalyptus Extract is an aromatic oil native to Australia. It has been regarded by both Aborigines and European settlers as a general cure-all in herbal remedies. The pale, volatile liquid is taken from fresh eucalyptus leaves, and the most important component of the liquid is Eucalyptol. Used to refresh skin. Produces an aromatic odor.

Rosemary Oil

Rosemary Oil, extracted from the leaf of the Rosemary plant, contains a variety of Amino Acids, Caffaic Acid, Rosemary Acid and Apigenen. It has been shown to contain strong antioxidant activity. It is also utilized for its fragrance in a wide variety of skin care products.

Spearmint Leaf Oil

Used by the ancients to scent their bath water and as a restorative, spearmint has made its way up through the centuries as a useful culinary and medicinal herb. Its therapeutic properties resemble that of peppermint, it is a stimulant, however, spearmint’s effects are gentler and its taste is sweeter. Aromatherapists use spearmint to energize the mind and body. A few drops in bath water has a refreshing effect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Non Negotiable to the Shaving Process A pre-shave oil is going to create a protective layer on your skin to prevent against razor burn and ingrown hairs. Pre-shave oil is also designed to create a closer shave by lubricating the hair (and blade) to prevent against the tugging feeling some may experience. A pre-shave oil is a necessary component to the perfect shave with as little nicks, razor burn and ingrown hairs as possible. Tip: Use only a dime sized amount. Although you may think you didn't use enough, you in fact did! Tip Part 2: Invest in a good quality badger brush to aid in a light exfoliation process before the shave! 4/19/16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great preshave product I use this as a preshave oil on my sensitive neck and Adam's apple. I shave with a safety razor, badger hair brush and shaving soap, and the preshave oil works well with my routine. It adds slickness and protection against nicks. It's not sticky like other oils I've tried, and it doesn't leave any nasty residue. I'm glad I took a risk and bought a bottle of it. 1/22/16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sets the table Although my cheeks are not fully covered with hair, my mustache and chin areas are full. I don't shave on weekends and by the time Monday rolls around, I need some help to prevent pain from razor pull and this product does the trick. I put it on under the White Eagle shaving cream and shaving is a breeze. The smoothness afterward is incredible and lasts well past the supper hour. My wife refers to it as "the Monday shave' and has to rub it. Don't change the formula the way you did the White Eagle shaving cream a few years ago. The shaving cream is till superb but the old formula was over the top. 11/24/15
Rated 5 out of 5 by So Fresh and So Clean Clean! I forgot how much I love this product. I ran out and boy did I pay for it. I am so spoiled with how soft & warm your beard gets after applying the oil . Now shaving without it for that week or two , was like going back to the dark ages.. why?? Men if you haven't tried this product and you have a thick beard .. then you should try this product. 5/23/14
Rated 5 out of 5 by Crucial for razor bump free shaves This is the best shaving oil on the market. No camphor or menthol, and quality oils. Just enough rosemary and spearmint to give a bit of a pleasant scent. Works well under a shave cream, and won't thin out your cream. Helps the razor glide, especially if you apply and allow to soak in and soften up your beard. My only concern is that it takes a little more of this , as opposed to the thicker oils out there. It's a good value , so if you use a little more, you're probably still ahead. 5/22/14

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent I have been moving from using a modern razor towards using a safety razor. Regardless of which razor and soap I use I always prep with 31-0 Close-Shavers. It opens my skin up, raises the hair, smells great and really improves my shave. Incredible product. It really allowed me to experiment with my safety razor minimizing slips. When I got back to the modern razor the 31-O provides the modern razor with an added personal touch. Also helps prevent razor burn and has really cleared my skin up post-shave. Highly recommended no matter how you shave. 9/13/12
