Proraso Pre-Shave Cream softens the beard and moisturizes skin before lathering to prepare for a perfect shave. Eucalyptus , menthol and glycerin purifies and revitalizes skin. Originating in Italy, Proraso has been helping men achieve a smooth shave since 1926. Over the years, our line of men's shaving products has evolved to feature natural-based formulations without mineral oils or artificial colors. Nourishing botanical extracts and natural oils protect the skin before, during and after shaving for an irritation-free experience.
