What is the purpose of Pre Shave Oil?

Pre-shave oil adds an extra layer of protection between your skin and the razor blade and also adds lubrication for the shaving process. Men who are prone to razor burn benefit the most from pre-shave oil. The essential oils moisturize and nourish the skin. Many shavers who do no “need” pre-shave oil still use it for the added comfort and the closer shave it allows.
