Power Shave Ingrown Hair Removal & Shaving Rash Gel Treatment
- 0.13 KGS
Game Changing NEW Formulation!
The new improved Power Shave post shave treatment is excellent for attacking the problem of ingrown hairs. An ingrown hair is one which has grown back into the skin, instead of rising up from it. This can result in irritation, a raised bump, and reddening of the skin.
To address this issue, our product uses a number of key ingredients, including alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA’s), Glycolic acid and Lactic Acid.In addition, Power/ Priva Shave also contains the cosmetic wonder : hyaluronic acid. We could have stopped here, but we went even further in order to deliver a product which has high effectiveness. Included in our serum is an extract from the flowers of the prickly pear plant. This cactus contains special enzymes which help to soothe irritation and gently exfoliate the outer layers of skin, so that inflamed ingrown hairs can be calmed and released.
We also include a gently scented base of witch hazel, lavender flower water, and chamomille extract, to soothe and calm the skin in a natural and effective manner.
This combination of ingredients has never before been seen in this type of product, and we are proud to offer it. As we look at other competitor’s products, we remain convinced that our approach is superior. We don’t use harsh drying alcohols, or glycols produced from petroleum. We don’t use silicones, which are synthetic and can build up on the skin. We don’t use ingredients that include poly(ethylene glycol) groups, which can potentially contain dangerous levels of a known toxin.
ABOUT OUR KEY INGREDIENTS:
Alpha-hydroxy acids are very powerful and sought-after ingredients in cosmetics. Their primary purpose is to loosen up the skin cells in the outer layers of the skin (corneocytes). This makes the skin more flexible, so that the trapped, ingrown hairs can escape. They also increase the moisture level of the skin. Used in higher amounts, the alpha-hydroxy acids can help the outer layer of skin to exfoliate, which also helps to free the trapped ingrown hairs. This exfoliation removes the uppermost layers of skin revealing skin that appears fresher, smoother, and more hydrated. There are several different AHAs to choose from. Glycolic acid is one of the most popular, and we make it a central component of our serum. The size of the molecule is just right to help penetrate the built-up layers of skin on the upper levels and reach the skin underneath. Lactic acid is also popular, and featured in our product. Because it’s a little larger molecule, it goes to work primarily on the outer layers of skin. Between the glycolic acid and the lactic acid, our serum offers the two most popular alpha-hydroxy acids in one product, at a total strength of 5% AHAs total. We also include malic acid, tartaric acid, and citric acid, to round out the selection of AHAs; each has slightly different qualities, and so we offer a balanced blend.
Our serum also includes hyaluronic acid. This is one of the most powerful moisturisers available in cosmetic products. Many serums use minimal amounts of the hyaluronic acid, because of its high cost. We think that consumers deserve a high-quality product, and include this ingredient at effective concentrations. It helps to plump up the skin cells with moisture and also softens the skin surface. There are very few moisturizing ingredients more powerful than hyaluronic acid, and we use it in a healthy dose.
Following this formulation philosophy of using materials found in Nature, we’ve included allantoin. This is found in the comfrey plant. It acts as a moisturizer and also helps the skin to gently exfoliate, resulting in a “fresher, rejuvenated” appearance of the skin. We’ve also added pro-Vitamin B5 (panthenol), which has many positive benefits. It soothes and softens skin by reducing Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL). It can also help to minimize itching, which makes it ideal for any skin repair situation.
Willow Bark Extract
Willow bark extract. This contains a natural beta-hydroxy acid which promotes exfoliation and has soothing properties. It also has some antimicrobial properties, which can be useful for a number of skin conditions. In vitro tests have shown willow bark extract to have activity against Staphylococcus aureus and Propionibacterium acnes, two strains of bacteria implicated in the formation of acne.

An Ingrown Hair / Shaving Bump Treatment You Can Trust to Work!
Few things are more embarrassing than a shaving rash on your face, razor bumps or ingrown hairs. This supposedly inescapable problem now has a cure! Power Shave guarantees to make all your shaving experiences easy and trouble-free.
Powerful enough to work instantly but gentle enough for use on sensitive areas like a man's face. Power Shave works wonderfully for men. You can apply Power Shave directly on your face after shaving to eliminate shaving bumps/rash. You'll find it works immediately and consistently.
Note: Power Shave uses Isopropyl Alcohol as an antiseptic. This antiseptic prevents the introduction of bacteria into the skin due to the shaving process. Power Shave also has anti-inflammatory agents (Acetysalicylic acid) that reduce the formation of papules and pustules. Acetysalicylic acid is a key ingredient in many skin-care products for the treatment of acne, psoriasis, calluses, and other dermatological problems. It prevents the pores from clogging up and allowing for new cell growth.
Furthermore, emollients (propylene glycol and glycerin) in Power Shave help to control the moisture exchange between the skin and hair and assists in softening the skin. These prevent dryness and scaling of the skin.
The anti-inflammatory/anti-irritant system in Power Shave Post Shave Treatment is highly effective in reducing inflammation that results from the irritating process of hair removal. It is perfect to use on the face and by anyone who has sensitive skin.

Unlike other formulas on the market, Power Shave is the original… and the best. Simply apply this soothing, gel-like liquid to your skin directly after any hair removal technique (shaving, waxing, electrolysis, plucking, using depilatories, etc). The anti-inflammatory /anti-irritant system instantly blocks the introduction of bacteria into the broken skin and thus eliminates inflammation that leads to razor bumps, shaving rash and ingrown hairs along with swelling, itching and discoloration.
- Developed from over a decade of research.
- The original formula - developed by a company with a long history in this specialised field.
- Formulated jointly by a pharmacist and a former Estée Lauder chemist.
- Created with a gel-like consistency rather than a thin, runny liquid, to stay on your skin longer for maximum results.

Manifestations of "Ingrown Hairs" related to shaving pubic hair
Inflammation: The body's response to injury. Skin tissue is damaged after the shaving process and it usually causes pain, heat, redness, and swelling. These symptoms occur because blood vessels in the area dilate to bring in extra white blood cells to eat the bacteria and other foreign particles gathering at the site of injury. As a result, dead cells begin to accumulate thus forming papule that turn into pus during the healing process. Any hair in the area gets bound under this formation, cannot exit the skin properly, and worsens the affected area. The hair must be removed to ensure proper and complete healing.
Papule Formation: A small superficial raised abnormality or spot on the skin commonly known as a bump.
Pustule Development: A blister on the skin containing pus.
Bleeding: The rupture of an infected pustule and surrounding blood vessels due to their dilation and close proximity. These vessels are present and in a dilated condition to promote healing.
Micrococci: Colonies or clusters of bacteria that cause abscesses in affected tissue. Their presence cause the body to begin the healing effort by both collecting these harmful bacteria and also by building a wall around the bacteria to prevent further spreading throughout the body.
Leukocyte Count Increases: - The presence of white blood cells increases in a damaged or infected area to protect the body against foreign substances and to help produce antibodies
Hypertrophy and Keloidal Scarring: Skin tissue begins to multiply in response to injury caused by the act of shaving, especially in sensitive areas (e.g. bikini line) thus causing Keloidal scarring. Keloid development is common in a small percentage of the population and is clearly defined as a hard, prominent, irregular shaped scar tissue, in the skin, often increasing in size. Keloidal scarring also usually occurs where healing injuries, burns, or surgical incisions are under tension. For those rare cases the use of Power Shave® “FoR MaN™” & Priva Shave® “FoR WoMaN™” immediately after shaving will prevent the inflamed tissue from progressing to the point of keloidal development.
Epilation: The removal of a hair by its roots. This process is normally done by pulling the hair(s) with tweezers, using wax to strip an area of hair, or by electrolysis.
Note: If bumps are already present, all ingrown hairs must be removed preferably by using tweezers. Then the area should be thoroughly cleaned or scrubbed with a good soap and hot water. Finally, apply enough Priva / Power Shave to cover the entire cleansed area. Let area dry naturally thus allowing the product to soak well into the pores for maximum benefit. Employing this process over a two-day period will eliminate all traces of bumps, swelling and skin reddening.
