Does anyone know of a safe shaving cream for my teenage son? I have e-mailed the makers of Skintimate, SC Johnson, firstly on June 9th, and received the following reply:

Dear _________,

Thank you for your recent email regarding SKINTIMATE

I researched and researched this and there are NO safe shaving creams!!!!!! I called the FAAN for ideas and they had none. My hubby used to use Aveeno baby shampoo but he now uses Free and Clear Vanicream hair conditioner. We order this and there are some threads on it. I called them and they said some men use this product to shave. He is not PA but my DD is so we have nothing questionable in the house that I know of.... Good luck and if you find one please post.

If you can't find a safe shaving cream, see if you can find a safe hair conditioner and use that instead. I use conditioner for shaving my legs and armpits and it works really well.

Thanks for all the tips - I'll look around and see what I can find. Someone on another forum suggested Neutrogena Fragrance Free Rain Bath.

I contacted this company awhile ago and re-raised the thread for you. Hope it helps. My DH uses Colgate shaving cream and feel pretty safe with him using it around my PA DD. I called on them awhile ago too and felt pretty confident with their safeness. Whichever you decide you may want to call the companies yourself and double check. Also you can do a search for shaving creams and come up with other threads. I believe Gillette is not recommended for those who are PA or TNA.

The thread I re-raised for you is in Alerts and Food Recalls under SC Johnson Inc. HTH! [img][/img]

Thanks, Mom2Nickie,
I will have to contact the companies by phone and see where that gets me. I'm just upset with the lack of response from SC Johnson.
Some of the responses in the thread you re-raised for me are interesting, but perhaps a little out-dated. I'm hoping that the situation has changed for the better over the last couple of years.
My son uses an electric razor for his face, but he is a cyclist and races, and has recently found the need to shave his legs during race season (as they all do in racing). Hence the need for shaving cream. I'll post any responses I get.

P.S. In addition to peanuts, my son is also allergic to soy and tree nuts, making it even more difficult.

We are using Neutrogena Fragrance Free Rain Bath. Both children use it, DS is PN/Soy allergic and our DD who is extremely sensitive to everything uses it without a problem. My sister who has recently begun having problems with nuts and soy has been using it with no problems. I use it to shave my legs and I like it. Dh likes it too.

My son uses Rainbath or shampoo to shave also. He breaks out from every single shave cream he's tried.
