A soft, moisturising and skin calming base to apply to the skin after shaving
The luxurious but gentle Aftershave Balm base uses natural ingredients without Paraben. This makes the aftershave base ideal for all skin types, including sensitive skin. In addition, our aftershave Balm base is easily absorbed and specifically designed for the demands of male skin.
Suitable for all skin types, Naturallythinking aftershave balm base can be tailored with natural ingredients, essential oils, and fragrances for your skin type.
Stability / Shelf Life
36 Months / Use within 12 months of opening.
The above shelf life is based upon Naturallythinking Aftershave Balm without additional ingredients. The shelf life can be affected by the addition of ingredients. For example, adding oils that quickly go rancid can reduce the life expectancy of the base. On the other hand, adding ingredients with natural preservative and anti-oxidant properties can prolong the life of the Aftershave Balm.
pH of Aftershave Balm

Directions for blending aftershave balm
If you are blending for home use on a small scale, add 15-20 drops of essential oils to 100ml of Aftershave Lotion base.
We recommend using up to 3% essential oils in the Aftershave Balm if you are customising; commonly, most blends will not exceed 1% essential oil. You can also add other active ingredients (see our active ingredients section) to further customise the base.
If you create professional blends, blending is best done in a mixing bowl by gradually adding and stirring your preferred combination.
You can add unlimited levels of carrier oils to the base; keep in mind the more you add, the more you will change the composition of the base.
Fragrance oils (as opposed to essential oils) can also be used in our bases, although as we only use natural essential oils, we do not sell synthetic Fragrance Oils.
Remember, shaving can be a very sensitive experience for many men and teenagers, so careful addition of the appropriate essential oils is crucial. In addition, the correct choice of essential oils can significantly increase the effectiveness of your blend.
Blend Oils such as Lavender and Tea Tree with Aftershave Balm base to provide natural antiseptic and antibacterial properties. This natural blend will help with problem skin and help ensure the skin remains spot-free after-shaving.
If you would like the Aftershave Balm base to give a cooling effect, why not add Peppermint Essential Oil? Instantly cooling for the skin and combined with other essential oils provides a scent popular with men.
Other essential oils popular for Aftershave Balm blends are Orange and Eucalyptus.
It is also possible to enhance the moisturisation effects of the balm by adding carrier oils, such as Avocado, Almond, Rosehip, Sea Buckthorn, and Jojoba.
One of our favourite blends is to combine with aftershave base 50:50 with Coconut and Jojoba to produce a natural shaving lotion with excellent glide and natural antibacterial protection from Coconut.
