At the very beginning, the barber applies to the skin a shaving preparation of Truefitt & Hill oil that softens the hair, which ensures a comfortable and safe shaving, and subsequently prevents the appearance of ingrown hairs.

The thin film of oil that is left on the skin has hydrophilic properties and allows for smooth sliding of the straight razor blade.

In addition, the active components of the oil (including avocado oil, safflower seeds, coconut and citrus fruits, extracts of cucumber and aloe) improve the skin condition: it soothes the texture and reduces sensitivity due to increased moistening of epidermal cells.
