Feel Good Friday – Tico Shave Oil
It’s a fact: as men, we use lots of shaving cream. Even we gents with beards still have to shave the neck and cheeks so as not to look like a crazed hillbilly. And if you have been reading this site for a while, you know we like our products to be as organic as possible. If you think about it, you are slapping this stuff on your face in a hot shower with open pores. Do you want ingredients seeping into your skin that you can’t pronounce? Enter Tico, the 100% USDA Organic all-in-one shaving solution.
Rayner Smith had the idea for Tico (which is what Costa Rican’s call themselves) when he spent some time living in Costa Rica without the daily electronic beat down. He realized he wanted to make something pure and simple but shake things up at the same time. So since he had recently been trying shave oils (opposed to shave creams), he saw this as his route and Tico was born. He and his business partner Travis McAshan focused on using the best organic ingredients, the primary one being hemp oil which is amazing for the skin because it has anti-aging properties, natural antioxidants, is non-greasy and helps skin disorders.
Now, for the wild part about Tico, you only need ONE pump for an entire shave. Trust us. Even after we read that we still pumped 2-3 times and it’s just overkill. Pump once, run it into your hands, slather on your face and shave. Reason being is that the organic oils soften your hair and offer your blades a smooth glide. It also moisturizes at the same time so your skin is left healthy and not red and dry. One bottle of this miracle oil will last 125 shaves.
If that doesn’t make your Friday feel good enough, the boys also donate 1% of each purchase to 1% for the Planet. Oh and added bonus- ladies love this stuff too so impress her when you have this in the shower and show her how the magic happens.
