Blood is an essential resource that has no manufactured substitute and donating can save lives.
We are incredibly proud to have an ongoing partnership with the Red Cross, offering samples of our products and sometimes (big) prizes to those who take the time to donate.
This month we teamed up with the Great Lakes Blood Services Region in Michigan during their Michigan State -Penn State Blood Challenge, offering $125 Pacific Shaving gift certificates to two lucky winners.
Ellie Stoffer and JoAnn Villarreal will never shave the same again. They have the opportunity to stock up on All Natural Shaving Cream, All Natural Shaving Oil, Nick Sticks and Blade Oil, to share said products with their loved ones, to radically improve the daily chore that is shaving.

There are many things that I love about our All Natural Shaving Cream. It’s thick; its lather is low and a little goes a long, long way.
And then there’s the white tea.
I love the white tea. In addition to stellar ingredients like organic sunflower seed oil and organic shea butter, All Natural Shaving Cream includes a good dose of skin-protecting white tea.
White tea contains powerful antioxidants, which helps fight damage to skin due to stress and age.
Not a bad addition to the daily shave!

And its easy on the eyes, too.
Please let us know what you think. Your feedback is truly appreciated.

Two and a half years ago, Pacific Shaving made the decision to work with VIP Solutions in Rancho Cucamonga, CA to help in the assembly and final packaging of our products. This is the final step of the manufacturing process – getting it ready for sale!
The fit was perfect: the people were kind, the quality was excellent, and the jobs remained in the U.S. (our home state of California).
But beyond that, there was an even nicer bi-product of this partnership. In addition to being a top-rate assembly facility, VIP (short for “Vocational Improvement Program”) is a private 501 (c) (3) nonprofit corporation. Their mission is simple: maximize the potential of individuals with disabilities by providing them meaningful work opportunities to achieve personal growth and independence.
The VIP family is a great one and this year they are celebrating 25 years in business. What started with four clients and three staff members in 1986 has now grown to a business serving more than 600 individuals with disabilities annually. Congratulations to VIP on such a significant milestone!
Who says you can’t do well and do good at the same time?

The gift of satisfaction. That’s what.
The satisfaction that comes from receiving the perfect stocking stuffer/Secret Santa/Hanukkah present.
This year you’ll give a gift that’s thoughtful, budget-friendly, practical and most importantly, useful.
At Pacific Shaving, our philosophy is simple: create innovative shaving products that are good for the skin, good for the wallet and good for the earth. The result? A line of affordably priced, long-lasting shaving products made from organic, natural and safe ingredients. With minimal packaging and a commitment to plant a tree for every purchase, we’re the real deal. And if that’s not enough, our full-sized products are also TSA-friendly (3 oz or less), easily tucked into your carry-on bag for simplified traveling — or stuffed into a stocking for easy holiday cheer.
The quick four-product line up for supreme gift-giving:
Luxurious All Natural Shaving Cream. Softens whiskers and delivers maximum lubrication with a unique low-lather formula that keeps skin healthy and hydrated — with a subtle citrus scent that won’t leave you in a cloud of “Morning Rain” or “Irish Fields.”
The original All Natural Shaving Oil. Lubricates skin protecting it from razor burn and allowing for an absurdly close shave. Instead of drying and irritating, our Shaving Oil actually improves the quality of your skin, leaving it supple, moisturized and soothed all day. It also applies clear so you can see where you’re shaving – ideal for shaving around scars or blemishes, sculpting a beard or moustache, even shaving your head.
Our one-of-a-kind Nick Stick. Nicks are an inevitable part of shaving. Now you can do something about it – without the tissue paper. Our proprietary liquid formula comes in a roller ball applicator and dries clear. After all, shaving is no way to give blood.
As for the cost of shaving – our Blade Oil has got you covered. Clinically proven to extend the life of razor blades by 95%. Do we need to say more?
Holiday gift giving simplified!

Last Thursday a world record was set for the largest number of men simultaneously shaving with the same model electric razor (the Panasonic Lamdash, if you’re curious).
The event took place in Suita, Osaka Prefecture in Japan as well as in Seoul, Hong Kong and Taipei. After refraining from shaving for 24 hours, about 2,000 men turned on their shavers at 12:25 and ran them for one minute.
“It was a fresh experience for me to shave outside,” said Yu Murata, a university student from Suita.
