It seems as though there are more and more eco friendly products on the shelves these days (we love it!). It’s great to see more health and hygiene companies growing an eco-conscious by becoming in tune with natural, organic ingredients and eco-friendly manufacturing processes. The brands participating in this movement have certainly grown, as well as, the ease of walking into any drugstore or big box retailer and picking up a variety of products that meet this criteria. The shaving creamcategory is no exception, with options available at a range of price points. Below you will find our top picks for an eco friendly shave.
