What Sets Dr. Jon’s Apart: A Spotlight on Our Safe Ingredients

What Sets Dr. Jon’s Apart: A Spotlight on Our Safe Ingredients

At Dr. Jon’s, we guarantee all of our products are 100% cruelty-free and vegan. As a member of the Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetic Guild, we are proud to create safe, nature-approved skincare products for both men and women.

Our plant-based formula combines shea butter, mango butter, meadowfoam oil, castor oil, avocado oil and golden jojoba oil to leave the skin feeling smooth and moisturized after your shave. We use this formula as a base to create several shaving products, then add in various other ingredients to create different scents for different tastes. 

Take a look at some of the base ingredients we use in our products, as well as some of our favorite oils and fragrances. You’ll learn why Dr. Jon's is the only shaving product you will ever need, and why you should try our other offerings.

Shea Butter is the star of most of our products. In the Winter time, many people seek out this thick, luscious ingredient to help combat dry skin. This solid turns into a liquid once it reaches body temperature, so it’s easy to apply to the skin and will melt upon contact. This makes shea butter an ideal choice for locking in moisture for both your skin and hair. It can even help prevent dandruff, which is why we use it in our Heavy Hold Vegan Pomade.

Mango Butter

Light and soft, lovely mango butter is derived from the kernels of the mango seed. Like shea butter, mango butter also helps hair and skin retain moisture, while promoting cell growth to boot. We love this emollient butter since it helps protect the skin from damage and allows our products to glide smoothly over the rough parts of your elbows, knees and feet.

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is wonderful for many agricultural and medicinal reasons, which is why humans have been using it for thousands of years. This cooling, soothing plant ingredient is used by many skincare companies for treating dry, damaged, sunburnt or irritated skin. It feels particularly nice when you use it after a long day in the sun. We love the cool, relaxed and slick feeling it lends to our products.

Candelilla Wax

Many companies use beeswax in their hair care products because its thick consistency can help hold hair together. At Dr. Jon’s, we use only plant ingredients, so instead of beeswax, we opt for the much better candelilla wax. It helps make our pomade firm and hold the softer, conditioning ingredients together.

Witch Hazel

Most commercial aftershaves are either loaded with chemicals or just fragrance and alcohol, which dries out your skin, ick! Dr. Jon’s is different, which is why our Aftershave Tonics include better-for-you ingredients. One of our favorites, Witch Hazel, is known to help clear up skin, as well as leaving it feeling soothed and refreshed. Because it has astringent properties, you may see Witch Hazel used in acne products. If you’re prone to breakouts, you might find relief with our aftershave. 

Luxury Conditioning Oils

We use an abundance of luxury conditioning oils throughout our products to help keep your skin healthy and moisturized. Our favorites to include are Meadowfoam Oil, Castor Oil, Avocado Oil, Babassu Oil, Evening Primrose Oil and Golden Jojoba Oi. These oils help us achieve a slick, luxurious consistency to prevent dry skin and lock in moisture to your newly softened skin. These oils help the skin feel smooth and moisturized after your shave. That means no more razor burn!

Essential/Fragrance Oils

We use a variety of premium essential and fragrance oils to make our products smell amazing each time you take off their lid. For example, our Gold Label Vegan Shaving Soap contains spicy, deep fragrances that make a long-lasting and earthy scent. Escape in the smell of Tobacco, Neroli, Leather, Amber, Evergreen and Clary Sage. Or, try our 13 Natural Vegan Shaving Soap Vol.2, which is made with Oud, Hedione, Musk and Iso-E Super. The blend creates a fragrance that is dark, musky and floral all at the same time. We think it smells exactly how Steve McQueen looked, smooth and manly!
