The Science of Billy Jealousy's Hydroplane
So as you might be able to tell I've been combing through the FHM Grooming awards looking for interesting topics and products to write about. Here's something worth mentioning - how modern science has improved shaving creams. From the September 29, 2005 post on Billy's Blog of Billy Jealousy:
Historically, the best way to achieve a close shave was to create a thick foam so your blade would ride a cushion of bubbles. Today with the creation of water-soluble micro silicone beads, thick foam has become obsolete. Water-soluble means that water doesn't permeate the silicone. As a result, Hydroplane becomes slicker and slicker when you add more water as you shave. The upshot? Your razor now floats over your face without any razor drag or irritation.
Hydroplane is Billy Jealousy's shaving cream, which they recommend using with their Hot Towel pre-shave treatment. Get 'em both for $42 and a portion of the price goes to supporting the arts and the environment.
