Does the association of pain and sting with clean and better go back to our childhood days? Is it all related to that time, after falling from a bike, when “insert adult figure” would wipe the raw skin with an alcohol swab to “make it better”? What is the crazy association of that alcohol burn with clean mean? If Honey Bee Gardens has anything to say about it then it means we are all wrong!
A true needs based company founded by a caring wife looking to help her husband out. the firm was developed based upon this following story as told from their history page:
“My husband hated shaving. His face would become red and irritated with the first swipe of a razor. I used to buy him expensive aftershaves and shaving potions, but nothing seemed to work (some even aggravated the problem). I had been growing and studying herbs for years, and decided to test some of that knowledge in order to save my husband’s face. It took time. My husband, acting as guinea pig, sampled formulas on almost a daily basis. One was too gentle. One wasn’t as soothing. With each trial, the results were documented. More research ensued. Finally, one day, he proclaimed, “This is it!”, and our Herbal Aftershave was born.”
Mrs. Buckley’s husband was facing a problem many men face and that is a harsh reaction to the skin drying and astringent properties of over the counter aftershaves. The idea behind standard aftershaves is to tighten the pores and seal any nicks or scrapes from infection. In addition standard aftershaves usually contain heavy perfumes to give them a “manly” scent that women crave… are guys crazy enough to buy that pitch?
The act of shaving is very burdensome on our bodies. Using a metal razor to trim facial hairs naturally involves some irritation of the upper layers of skin. Even with the latest in shaving technology blades will pull and tug the hair follicle causing irritation. A good aftershave therefore should provide cooling lotions to nourish the irritated skin and reduce the “burn” associated with shaving.
Honeybee Gardens’ Herbal Aftershave uses a blend of fresh herbs brewed for weeks and strained into a serum combined with aloe and essential oils to produce an aftershave that is cool to the skin and refreshing to apply. Light on perfume the company offers several mild scents obtained by altering the mixture of essential oils to produce the desired fragrance. The product is Vegan and Gluten Free and comes in 4oz sizes including the following scents: Bay Rum, Florida, Key Lime, Sandalwood, Vermont, and Unfragranced.
The Herbal Aftershave can be found here on the GoNayked.com marketplace where you can read more about the product and leave your own review of your experience.
