Did you know? 👇

The traditional, all-natural shave

Alum stone is a good alternative to the classic aftershave. Its soothing and healing properties are ideal for calming razor burns and preventing infections from micro-cuts. Its effectiveness is comparable to any aftershave product, with the difference that alum stone is natural and very ecological.

Be careful to distinguish between real natural alum stone, made with potassium salt, marked "Potassium Alum" in the ingredients list, and chemical alum stone with ammonium salt marked "Ammonium Alum", which is not very good for your health. We tell you more in our glossary!

Shaving in one block

Amongst natural alum stones, there are two categories: those that are actually a block cut directly from the mineral, and those that are reconstituted. Like modeling clay, it is possible to put together several pieces of alum to make a block, but it will not have the same appearance or the same comfort in use. In addition, a reconstituted stone will tend to crumble, which is inconvenient, in addition to significantly reducing its lifespan.

Alum stone before electric shaving?

We often talk about alum stones as aftershaves, but you should know that this block has properties that are highly appreciated in pre-shaving, especially electric pre-shaving. Indeed, its astringent power tightens the skin's pores to smooth it, thus promoting a smooth glide, for an irritation-free shave. The alum stone also has the effect of straightening the hair, which will make your electric shave much more effective. All profit! ;-)
