Here are two reasons that make this shave cream special!
- The Japanese Sake, derived from fermented rice, has been known for many years to be an ancient skin softener. This creme not only moisturizes the skin, but it does so while allowing the skin to breathe and remain hydrated.
- Silicone micro particles, coat the skin to ensure consistent skin to blade contact in an effort to significantly reduce drag. Kyoku calls it a “friction-free shave”.
If you’re a traditional shaver, the fact that it doesn’t lather may disappoint. But, I have been known to apply this cream manually as a pre-shave oil substitute followed by a lather-based shaving cream using my badger brush. The extra cushion is very enjoyable, and so is the great menthol cool.
