Iain Kane, the owner and creator of Village Barber is originally from Scotland where he has been professionally trained in the traditional art of barbering for over 30 years. In 2007 he opened his own barbershop and was commonly seeing men come in and complain about skin irritation. In addition to teaching them proper techniques, he continually saw that shaving products were loaded with additives to help preserve them and were leaving men with irritated faces. It was then that he set up to create a shaving oil that was natural, paraben and chemical free. In addition to the oil, Iain created an aftershave balm, both are 100% pure with beneficial oils. The essential oils lightly scent the products and due to the concentration, a little bit goes a long way. If you are a man that is left with irritated skin, Village Barber is definitely a brand you should try.
