FAQs - 100% Natural Shaving Oil
Q: How much Shaving Oil should I use for each shave?
A: It really depends on the individual beard (growth, density, etc) but as a general indication, you should pour approximately twice the size of your thumb nail worth of Oil onto the palm of your hand (see picture) before massaging it into your beard using circular motions.
Q: How often should I use Village Barber 100% Natural Shaving Oil?
A: For best results, every time you shave!
Q: Do I need to apply shaving soap/cream/gel/foam as well as the Oil?
A: No. Village Barber Shaving Oil has been carefully formulated to give you a close, comfortable shave without the need for any other product/s. However, if you like to pamper yourself now and then (as I do!) by also using a quality shave soap or cream over the Oil (always apply Oil first), then that's great. The Oil will still deliver an unbeatable shave!
Q: I have a nut allergy. Should I use Village Barber Shaving Oil?
A: As the standard Village Barber Shaving Oil utilises pure Sweet Almond oil (Prunus amygdalus dulcis) as a base product, then you should not use it. However, as a service to nut allergy customers, the sweet almond can easily be replaced with another suitable pure and natural oil such as Sunflower (Helianthus annus) resulting in the same "guaranteed" result!
