Hi All,

I am late to the party, and only just found out Krampert's Finest Aftershaves closed its doors. Sad (Brian you will be missed!)

Can anyone recommend a good alternative to Krampert's Finest's Aftershaves (Bay Rum and Frostbite (icy cool menthol))? Similar to Krampert's, I'm looking for an All-Natural (or mostly Natural) Ingredient Aftershave.

I remember Captain's Choice had a pretty minimal ingredient list and some good reviews? Anything else?

Besides a Bay Rum and a cooling Menthol one, I'm open to any other scents as well.

Thanks!

For menthol, you can try Fine Snake Bite.  Only four natural ingredients.  Charlie (chazt) got me interested in this aftershave and it's excellent.

You beat me to it, Ricardo. @shave_knight, Snake Bite is crisp and clean. Highly recommended.

Any particular ingredients you’re looking to avoid in the “all-natural” search?

Also, glad to see another wetshaver from LA! Studio City here

I was lucky enough to have obtained a bottle of Krampert's back in the day. Then the doors closed on import to Australia, so I made it last. Wish I had stocked up. Excellent product. But now what?

Thanks jessiex! Smile For the natural ingredients, just wanting to keep what I put in close contact with my skin as natural as possible. Some synthetic perfumes "parfum" and other chemicals have irritated my skin over the years. After discovering traditional shaving and the fine folks here on The Shave Nook (and B&B), I got spoiled with Krampert's Finest Bay Rum and Frostbite (they were my first Aftershaves after I switched to traditional shaving years back), and never looked back.

Thanks for the recs!

Check out Historic & Oak - Historic Brands Georgian Bay Rum. One of my favorites and has a nice, cooling aspect to it.

RazoRock Black Bay aftershave splash.  It’s heavy in natural bay laurel and light on spice.

Thanks Jack! I'm trying to find a store near me that carries Healing Scents. Do you have any online stores you'd recommend?

Thanks Bryan! I remember hearing about RazoRock back in the day. I'll give it a try.

I just checked my local store (West Coast Shaving) no longer carries RazoRock, darn.

Hi Jessie,

Thanks. I still haven't found a place that carries Chicago Grooming Co. near me, but for Chiseled Face and Wholly Kaw, which scents have you tried for their After Shave Splash that you like? Thanks.
