If there is something that we love at KOKO is homemade beauty products, and this DIY shaving gel has definitely become my new staple.
Most shave creams and gels are packed with parabens and chemicals that can actually harm your skin. It is super easy to prepare your own shave gel with only a few ingredients. In addition, there is another better reason to start creating your own products: the environment and animals. Beauty products are sometimes tested on animals and you can reduce the waste of water, transportation expenses and packaging when you produce your own batches.
You'll prepare this recipe in no more than two minutes and you can store it in the fridge for as long as you want.
Vegan and cruelty-free DIY shave gel

Mix all the ingredients in a glass bottle and shake well. Before using the shave gel, wet your skin and apply a layer of the product, then shave.
