Homemade Shaving Cream Recipe:


This recipe will make 1 Cup (8 oz.) of Shea Butter cream!


1/2 cup Shea Butter

1/2 cup Coconut Oil

1/2 teaspoon Essential fragrance

This recipe is very flexible when it comes to the amount of Shea butter shaving cream you want to make.  You may wish to use a bit more Shea butter if you use another substitute for Coconut oil.


Shea butter and Coconut oil can solidify during storage so you may need to warm up the mixture for easier handling before using your electric hand mixer to begin the whipping process.

Here is a popular way to warm up your Shea butter for easy mixing.  Have a large bowl of very warm water ready.  Next, in a smaller bowl with the Shea butter, place this on top of the water to help quickly melt the Shea butter and make mixing the recipe easier!

Now is when you MIX the three ingredients together.

Once the ingredients have a lovely creamy texture from manually mixing it, begin using the electric hand mixer on medium settings to start turning it into a wonderful whipped shaving cream texture.

The longer you mix it, the fluffier it will get!


Once your whip cream is ready, you can set it in a glass jar or any cute container. To keep it nice and fluffy, preserve it at room temperature and away from heat.  Keeping it in the fridge allows it to last for a long time!
