Reviewed and recommended: no-melt after shave from Anthony Logistics
That is probably because of the squalene, an oil (usually derived from olive) that is especially well absorbed by human skin. There is also apricot kernel oil and aloe. Witch hazel will close pores, along with rosemary oil (a natural astringent), and allantoin will sooth. Logistics After Shave Balm even uses a topical anesthetic, benzocaine, an ingredient in over-the-counter antiseptic creams, for relieving razor rash.
I am also impressed by the anti-aging actives: vitamins E and C, plus some retinyl palmitate to exfoliate.
