    Oliveology Shave Gel

    Just ask my mother and she’ll tell you that olive oil is the best product on earth. According to my mother, she can use it to remedy any problem from dry hair to stomach aches, and it’s true that olive oil is regarded as one of the best skin moisturizers. It is found in numerous cosmetics, such as soaps, shampoos, lotions and many others. For wet shavers, olive oil is commonly used as a primary ingredient in many pre-shave oils as well as in aftershave balms.  A new shaving product, Oliveology Shave Gel, takes this to heart and uses extra virgin organic olive oil to provide a surprisingly enjoyable shave.
