I have never heard of this. Interesting. But I do know hair conditioner works good as a shaving cream also.

 I found this one... good?

Home made shaving cream recipe

Ingredients

45 gms cocoa butter
30 gms base oil such as grapeseed
20 mls liquid castille soap

Method

Melt the cocoa butter and base oil (Sal uses calendula which is great for irritated or dry skin) in a large pyrex bowl over a pan of simmering water.

Once melted allow to cool (If you’re impatient like Sal put it in the fridge until just the edges start to solidify!)

Whisk with an electric whisk, then add the liquid castile soap.

As you continue whisking it will increase in volume, the cocoa butter will cool and the mix hold itself as a foam.

Put into jars and label

To Use

Scoop a little out and mix with a little water to make a lather.

The cocoa butter and oils are soothing and nourishing while the castile soap makes it gently lather and stops the blades getting clogged up.

You can add essential oils to the mix such as lavender for healing and benzoin for soothing.
