A soft, moisturising and skin calming base to apply to the skin after shaving
The Simple and Luxurious Aftershave Balm base is made using natural ingredients without Paraben. This makes the aftershave base ideal for all skin types including sensitive skin. Aftershave Balm base is easily absorbed and specifically designed for use on male skin.
Suitable for all skin types, the Aftershave Balm base can be tailored with the use of natural ingredients, essential oils and fragrances for your skin type.
pH of Aftershave Balm

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. Adding oils which quickly go rancid can reduce the life expectancy of the product, whereas adding ingredients with natural preservative and anti-oxidant properties can prolong the life of the Aftershave Balm.

Directions for Blending
If you are blending for home use on a small scale, then 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 your 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 are creating professional blends, blending is best done in a mixing bowl by gradually adding and stirring your preferred blend.
You can add unlimited levels of carrier oils to the base, just bare 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 and the correct choice of essential oils can greatly increase the effectiveness of your blend.
If you are blending for commercial resale and would like Naturallythinking to create the legal documents for you to legally sell your products within any country in the EU (this is called a Cosmetic Safety Report / CPSR), the maximum level of essential oil you can include is 2% and carrier oil 5% to benefit from our 48 hour CPSR service. Please see the column on the right of this page for further details.
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 gives a scent popular with men.
Other essential oils which are 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 produces a a natural shaving lotion which has great glide and a natural antibacterial protection from Coconut.
