Questionable link[edit]

What does the link at the bottom of the page have to do with the content of the article? If it is an important part of the understanding of shaving cream than should there be a section in the body of the article entitled "controversy" or something of the like?—Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.168.203.249 (talkcontribs) 08:07, 17 June 2006

dangerous ? edible ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 2006 Kissson (talkcontribs) 10:04, 5 August
I think it's certainly relevant to the topic, if there is some belief/evidence that shaving foam is harmful. This should be left in, and if possible, expanded on. --Username132 (talk) 12:52, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
Anecdotal evidence from one guy on the Internet is hardly a reason to cry "controversy". I don't think that this article should be cited unless more evidence is forthcoming. Or should I say, ANY evidence is forthcoming. --Cernansky 20:38, 25 August 2006 (UTC)
The whole text sounds like a joke to me. I was especially amused by this statement:
Shaving cream does something evil to the skin. It somehow weakens the pores and makes the top layer mushy and unresponsive.
I suggest we remove the whole "controversy" section, having no other proof than that suspicious webpage. I'll wait a while, and if nobody objects, I'll remove it myself. –Mysid(t) 16:53, 8 September 2006 (UTC)
I agree. I deleted it.--24.52.254.62 00:24, 9 September 2006 (UTC)

Shaving gel[edit]

Does anyone know anything about shaving gel? I don't see what the point is? Is it just a gimmick? It seems like more effort to me. --Username132 (talk) 12:52, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Wondering this myself. Is there an advantage? Why was it created in the first place? 15:40, 15 October 2006 (UTC)
What is the new gel doing as the sole picture, when cream is absent! Cream first, and perhaps should be the only picture in an article of this length. Please, rectify! I don't know these image uploading procedures and copyleft rules.Nastajus 09:37, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

The paragraph on shaving gel is faulty. It describes a gel that turns into foam upon application to the face, but the cited Canadian patent #027218 specifically describes a gel that remains a gel when applied to the skin. —QuicksilverT @ 21:27, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

Fixed it. Added information on U.S. Patent 5248495.—QuicksilverT @ 21:59, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

A bit fishy[edit]

This article seems to be very pro tub-based shaving cream... JaMiE P 08:16, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Shaving cream?[edit]

Shouldn't there be a distinction between shaving cream, shaving foam and shaving gel. This article is more about foam and gel rather than shaving cream, which is really strange since there is a great difference in how they are made, what they contain and their performance. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.231.83.143 (talk) 00:02, 22 December 2008 (UTC)


Shaving foam and gel have nothing to do with Shaving cream. They are completely different products just as Shaving Soap is. Go to a real wet shaving site such as Straight Razor Place, Shave My Face, Badger and Blade and The Shave Den to find out. If you want an article on Shaving Gel- Create one - don't hijack another one. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Riveira2 (talkcontribs) 00:29, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

this sounds like an ad for non canned shaving creams, justifying itself as a legitimate article by adding 'or so its is said/argued'. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.134.20.47 (talk) 03:45, 5 July 2011 (UTC)
