Never used that brand...but my daughter is allergic to just about everything on the planet, so I know where you're coming from. If a shampoo contains coconut she gets hives!

I guess go back to using your same old stuff!

 That could be why my pits itch when I use it too.  I usually use Mitchum for women.

Girl, I feel ya.  It's my heritage. LOL.  I have to wash with Jergen's mild soap, even Ivory gives me issues.

I am told to use deoderant AFTER you shave. Or use conditioner to shave with.

I swear by Aveeno products. I have very sensitive skin.

 My daughter uses aloe vera gel to shave her pubes.

I cannot use any kind of shaving cream, or conditioner on my skin.  Aloe Vera is GREAT.  Put it on after you get out of the shower form shaving IMMEDIATELY after drying off completely.  Also, the first day you shave, the benedryl clear skin gel is awesome.  It has no smell, and once it is dry you cannot even feel it.  It forms a sort of barrier.  The plain unscented AVeeno lotion works, but initially burns form the alcohol in it... Walmart has an Equate brand one that works just as well... I would try the aloe and benedryl ones first, though, as they work best.

As I said, I have to use Jergen's mild soap, and I shave with it and a regular disposable razor now.  I have never been able to do that, but since finding this soap, I can.
