Unisex and Travel-Friendly Natural Shaving and Skin Care

Whether you are searching for an effective everyday natural shaving product for your home vanity or a solution that travels with you easily on the road – you are in luck. I had the opportunity to try an innovative shaving product recently: A trifecta of grooming tasks and a neutral scent make it a  perfectly-suited option for guys and gals alike.

Triple Threat
After more than two decades in the beauty industry, StormSister Spatique owner Becky Sturm of St. Paul, Minnesota was seeking a multipurpose beauty product that could do three tasks effectively. She developed the natural, plant-based shhh. bar with the belief that pure solutions are the healthiest options for our hair and skin. The result was a three-in-one bar that’s effective for safely shampooing, showering and shaving. “Not only does the shhh. bar save consumers money and time, but its all-natural ingredients are better for the body and the environment, which is a win-win for everyone,” Sturm says. It meets TSA regulations too, so you can pack it in a carry-on bag without any problems.
On the Label
The shhh. bar is made without any artificial fragrances, artificial coloring, preservatives or synthetics.
The original bar has a unisex, citrus scent. A second, floral-scented bar is available that’s made using seven different lavender varieties sourced globally. The bars are sold in two sizes ($5 for 1.5 oz, $17 for 6 oz) in 100 percent compostable and recyclable packaging, with eight key, natural additives:
Castor seed oil to moisturize and prevent hair loss with insecticidal, fungicidal and germicidal powers
Cocoa butter is a natural preservative with natural antioxidants, a sweet smell and luxurious texture
Coconut oil prevents dandruff and breakage as it hydrates your hair
Jojoba oil mimics the skin’s natural oils and has anti-fungal properties
Kukui nut oil helps your hair grow
Olive and palm oil have antibacterial properties, contain natural antioxidants and moisturize the hair and skin
Sweet almond oil has essential minerals magnesium and calcium, and vitamins A, D and E to enrich skin
