"Star Jelly Prickly Pear Pre shave from PAA is the most amazing product I’ve ever used in my whole shaving life!!! It literally makes it effortless." ~ Clinton Warbington, Customer
If a preshave oil and a preshave soap were to have a baby, our Star Jelly Prickly Pear Preshave would be it, possessing nothing but the best characteristics of its parents...and then some!
Our Star Jelly Prickly Preshave adds a whole new level of glide, cushion and slickness, a slight lather boost and an unbeatable addition of skin food to every shave! Star Jelly Preshave is 85% organic and contains locally sourced Prickly Pear Juice, Pulp and Prickly Pear Oil too...BOOM!
For the last 5 years we have been pushing and pulling at our ever popular Prickly Pear Preshave Jelly, constantly playing with ingredient ratios, closely listening to customer feedback and with that always improving and tweaking the formula where we can...we never rest when it comes to delivering what we believe to be the best and most innovative preshave products out there!
One could say our Star Jelly Preshave is super charged with slickness and added glide! But not only that, it also contains some of the best skin food out there...check it out:
Meadowfoam: Like jojoba oil, meadowfoam seed oil is slightly waxy and closely resembles human sebum. When used in skin care, it naturally helps your skin to effectively form a barrier to lock in moisture and deliver nutrients deep into your epidermis. Meadowfoam seed oil is a popular mature skin due to its nourishing, high antioxidant composition.
Prickly Pear Oil: Aside from its content of betalains, this seed oil contains amino acids which may help stimulate collagen production. Containing vitamin K, prickly pear oil helps to brighten hyperpigmentation areas such as dark spots as well as being of benefit for under-eye dark circles. It's also amazing slick and lubricating while fast absorbing.
Witch Hazel: Is an astringent that is often used as a natural topical remedy post shave. This is also what makes our preshave jelly a little different, for it tones the skin before the shave much like when performing a cold water shave!
It's true, there are many out there that prefer a cold water shave. They find they achieve better results with their skin tight and toned. Sounds good to me, but give me a hot lather any day just with the same level of performance of a cold shave...best of both worlds!
Bilberry: Bilberries are edible and delightful little berries that are native to Northern Europe. While you often don’t stumble upon bilberries in your local supermarket anymore, they used to be very popular during the world war era and before. Often they’d be made into jelly, and a long time ago the jelly was given to pilots before they’d go on a mission. It was said that the jelly helped the pilot’s night vision, and in fact, according to research the pilots may have truly benefited from this.
Putting Down The Puff
Bilberries contain anti-inflammatory properties that are good for keeping down swelling. If our face is feeling a bit red, or perhaps if our skin is reacting to stress, products with bilberry extract can help reduce the symptoms. For this reason we chose to hone in on Billberry for most of us are morning shavers and though not often talked about, that puffiness we all wake up with can make or break a shave...send in the Bilberry!
Natures Shave Gel?
Aloe Vera: Another pro tip that no one seems to talk about anymore is aloe vera can be a natural substitute for shaving creams or gels. It is gentle on the skin and will give a smooth shave while also moisturizing the skin. The antiseptic properties also make it great for nicks and cuts while shaving. So it really seemed like a no brainer including nature's shave jelly in the mix!
Vegetable glycerin: is a natural humectant, which is something your entire body craves all year round. When used with other natural oils and ingredients, it can seal in moisture on the top layer of our skin while the other oils work their way deep into our cells to provide long-lasting moisture.
For those who have ever created a "Super Lather" you know glycerin is the catalyst for this, so with this boost in mind and the obvious skin food benefits, again, it just made sense! [I really should have trademarked "Lather Boost" years back when I first coined it!]
With a ingredient list like this, Star Jelly Prickly Pear Preshave will give you a higher quality shave while at the same time leaving your skin feeling silky smooth and nourished all day long!
In short, if you are looking for a preshave that's a little different than a preshave soap or oil and just as highly effective, Star Jelly Prickly Pear Preshave is just what the doctor ordered!
