I saw an ad on TV, it was for a solid shave gel for men with beards. I was just curious if anyone had attempted or made a "solid" shave gel. Ive been toying with the idea. Supposedly you just rub the "bar" on your face and then shave. Ideas?
I'm pretty sure I've seen the commercial you're talking about. It reminded me a bit of shaving with a very snotty Castill/Bastille (which has become my preferred shaving soap). If I remember right the commercial doesn't mention anything about actual lather other than "buy now and get miracles." I wonder if it would lather on its own if used like regular soap?
I cannot for the life of me remember the name of it - I was actually making soap at the time the ad came on so I was just barely listening. My husband prefers gels to actual soap bars so I was just curious if this was something someone might have an idea on. I was toying with it and thought it was an interesting ad.
In the comments she notes that you need to add a preservative to it, as the proteins are all water soluble and you are going to be using it with water as you shave. She recommends an oil soluble one like phenonip.
