Syrup isn’t just for pancakes. Say goodbye to shaving gels and creams that don’t get the job done. We are so excited to introduce you to Brazilian Bare Shave Syrup, the 5-star product from Brazilian Bare in the May Box. If you’ve ever experienced any type of skin irritation or not fully happy with the results after shaving your legs, underarms or bikini area, you are not alone. After years of buying and trying shaving creams and gels, Founder, Rachel Jacobs developed a unique shaving alternative for women that didn’t irritate her skin or leave her with ingrown hairs or razor bumps. Find out more about this amazing formula that is free from chemicals and artificial fragrances and why this is a must-have for summer.
How did the brand get its start?
I have extremely sensitive skin and could not find a product to shave with that did not irritate my skin or cause me to break out and get red bumps and ingrown hairs. I kept seeing so many new and innovative products in the Men’s Shave section but everything in the Women’s Shave area was basically the same type of products I had seen for decades! When I started to look at many of the ingredients, they were filled with chemicals and synthetic fragrance. So, I decided it was time to develop something premium for women whose needs were overlooked. We initially launched on Amazon at a $28 retail and we received all 5-star reviews. The formula is very expensive to make, but we were fortunate to partner with one of the largest retail chains and this allowed us to buy in much larger quantities and get the price point to where Brazilian Bare is still an affordable luxury… without cheapening the formula!
How did you come up with the name Shave Syrup?
The product looked just like maple syrup to me and I also wanted to convey that this was not just another shave cream or gel, but something entirely different and unique with premium ingredients.
What are the key ingredients in this unique alternative?
First, we don’t use any synthetic fragrances, as the greatest scent only comes from Vanilla Bean Extract. Second, we use wonderful, effective ingredients like Grape Seed extract, Olive Leaf Extract, Witch Hazel Extract, and Allantoin.
What are the benefits of these key ingredients?
There are so many to name! Many of the ingredients used provide superior protection to the skin while shaving, while others are known antioxidants that help guard your skin from environmental damage.
Is this good for all skin types?
Yes, it is great for all skin types and most importantly, it is really a game-changer for those that get red bumps and ingrown hairs.
Will this lessen the chance for razor bumps?
Yes! The Shave Syrup was developed specifically to address the elimination of razor bumps.
Can this be used all over the body?
Yes! Feel free to use it to shave everywhere.
What can women expect after using?
Smooth, moisturized skin with no red bumps or ingrown hairs!
What’s the difference between your Shave Syrup and a shaving cream or gel?
Everything! Our product was developed to address the specific needs of women who find traditional creams and gels just irritate their skin or who suffer from ingrown hair and razor bumps. From our premium ingredients to our innovative syrup formula that provides a clear protective gel barrier, our product is unlike anything else on the market.
Can you please share some shaving tips with us?
- Invest in a good Razor as having a great shave product is only half of the equation. You need a great razor. My favorite is actually a men’s razor that vibrates. I prefer it because many women’s blades have these big heads that are bulky and meant to protect you while shaving, but you don’t need this if you have a great shave syrup!
- Shave at the end of your shower. This allows your hair to soften and allows for a closer shave.
- Use a clear product that allows you to see where you are shaving to avoid going over the same area twice.
Is this Shave Syrup good for men as well?
Absolutely! I recently had a woman write to me and tell me that her tube disappeared quickly, but then realized that her husband had been stealing it. Another woman wrote that her husband, who is an avid cyclist, had been using it to shave his whole body and found it allowed him to shave more frequently than any other product he had used in the past. It is great for anyone who wants an incredible shave!
What other products from your brand can you suggest to go with the Shave Syrup?
We have a wonderful Post Shave Melted Body Butter that is also paraben, sulfate, and synthetic fragrance-free. It has Tahitian Monoi oil, honey, Shea Butter, Coconut oil, and fruit extracts. All of these ingredients are extremely soothing and nourishing after shaving or anytime your skin is dry. We also have our Post Shave Body Powder which is 100% talc-free and is made from pharmaceutical grade corn starch, aloe, and baking soda. It is great for preventing chafing and is a natural odor and wetness inhibitor. You can use it all over your body and it is perfect for humid and hot environments or anytime you want to feel refreshed throughout the day.
As an entrepreneur, what advice do you have for other women who want to be entrepreneurs?
I think it is extremely helpful to have worked in some capacity in the area where you want to start your business. No school, book, or webinar can prepare you for this undertaking like having to perform and live it in real life. I worked for 22 years as a buyer and was exposed to everything from shipping to merchandising to product development. So, I was fortunate to have had a particularly useful background that helped to avoid expensive mistakes. Such experience also allows you to build a trusted network of business colleagues who can be invaluable in navigating all aspects of business ownership.
