Aftershave is a product that is applied to the skin after shaving. It can help to soothe the skin and to prevent razor burn, it also helps to prevent the skin from bumps, rashes, or other skin diseases that may arise after shaving.

To apply aftershave, splash a small amount onto your palm and rub it on your skin after shaving. Avoid getting the aftershave into your eyes. If you experience any irritation, discontinue use and consult your doctor.

There are many different types of aftershave available, and the best one for you will depend on your skin type. If you have sensitive skin, you may want to choose an aftershave that contains aloe or other soothing ingredients. If you have dry skin, you may want to choose an aftershave that contains glycerine or other moisturizing ingredients. You should also consider the scent of the aftershave, as some people prefer a light scent while others prefer a strong scent.

It is important to note that many Aftershaves are made of ingredients that may not be reported on the label. You may be allergic to these ingredients, or they may even irritate your skin. So, it’s very important to choose aftershaves that will suit your skin type and preferences. This is a very good reason why you must learn how to produce your own Aftershave at home.

The alcohol we have used in this production is Ethanol.

It is no secret that alcohol has many benefits. One of its most popular uses is in aftershave production. Alcohol in aftershave has many benefits that make it an essential ingredient in the production.

The first benefit of alcohol in aftershave is that it acts as an antiseptic. This means that it will kill any bacteria that may be present on the skin. This is important because it will help to prevent any infections that may occur after shaving.

Another benefit of alcohol in aftershave is that it will help to soothe the skin. This is important because the skin can often become irritated after shaving. The alcohol will help to cool the skin and provide some relief from the irritation.

Finally, alcohol in aftershave will help to prevent the formation of ingrown hairs. This is important because ingrown hairs can be very painful. The alcohol will help to keep the hair follicles open which will allow the hair to grow out instead of inside.

While alcohol is very effective in killing germs, bacteria, and other pathogens, (together with water sometimes) it forms the base solution where other ingredients for the aftershave production are combined.

Isopropyl Alcohol (Also Known As Isopropanol):

Isopropyl alcohol is a powerful antiseptic that helps to kill bacteria, fungi, and viruses on the skin, reducing the risk of infection and promoting skin health.

After shaving, the skin is often irritated, red, and inflamed. The cooling properties of Isopropyl alcohol help to soothe and calm the skin, reducing inflammation and redness.

More so, Isopropyl alcohol helps to clean and disinfect the skin, reducing the risk of infection.

Shaving can create small cuts and abrasions on the skin, which can become infected if not properly disinfected.

Still on the functions, Isopropyl alcohol has a drying effect on the skin, which helps to reduce sweat and oiliness, keeping the skin clean and refreshed. Also, Isopropyl alcohol evaporates quickly, providing fast-acting relief from the symptoms of skin irritation and discomfort.

Additionally, isopropyl alcohol can act as a solvent, helping to dissolve and distribute other ingredients evenly in the aftershave. It is also used to help preserve the product and prolong its shelf life, as it is an effective antimicrobial agent. Isopropyl alcohol is a very essential ingredient in aftershave.

Menthol is often used in aftershave products because it can help to soothe and cool the skin after shaving. It can also help to reduce the appearance of razor burn and irritation. In addition to its cooling and soothing effects, menthol also has antiseptic properties. This means that it can help to kill bacteria and prevent infection.

Pine Oil:

Pine oil is used in aftershave due to its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. When applied to the skin, pine oil helps to soothe razor burn and reduce inflammation. Additionally, pine oil can help to kill bacteria that can cause acne and other skin infections.


Glycerine is widely used in the cosmetic industry as an emollient, solvent, and humectant. Because it is a hygroscopic substance, meaning it attracts water to itself; this property makes it useful in aftershave products, where it helps to keep the skin hydrated and prevent irritation.

Apart from keeping the skin hydrated, Glycerine also helps to soothe and protect the skin. It can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.


Perfume can have several different effects on aftershave. It can help to mask the scent of the alcohol in the product, making it more pleasant to use.

It can also help to add a pleasant scent to the product. Perfume can also help to stabilize the scent of the aftershave, making it last longer.

The most common reason why Perfume is added to the aftershave is to give the product the desired fragrance. For those in commercial production, this could also be a way to make the brand unique.


Color is added to give the aftershave the desired color. It makes it to have a more appealing look or aesthetic characteristic.

The color added to the aftershave also helps to mask the natural color of the ingredients of the aftershave. This is important because the natural colors of the ingredients can be unappealing to some people. The color also helps to make the aftershave more visually appealing.

  1. My problem is with my own production, it was not cool on skin, it was watery and did not burn well when used with a clipper. What do you think might be the problem?

    1. Thanks for this comment.
      I perceive an error in the ratio of water to the alcohol. Most likely you have used less than required volume of alcohol; or greater volume of water as the case may be. More so, you might have bought fake or super diluted alcohol from vendors. Chemical selling guys can also be funny at times. Thanks

  2. Good day,
