Whisky Aftershave

This vegan after-shave with sea minerals bathes the skin with the amazing and nourishing properties of the sea. Made without drying alcohol, it’s a natural alternative for the post-shave routine, full of enriching and refreshing ingredients—sea kelp extract, blue-green algae, organic aloe vera juice, and tea tree essential oil. The scent is reminiscent of an ol’ yachtsman relaxing below deck at the end of a long day on the wild ocean, a favorite Scotch in hand. Made in U.S.A.
