Shaving preparations has become indispensable part of men's toiletries. To reduce the trauma of shaving, a wide range of preparations are now available that prepare the face and beard for shaving. The choice of the shaving preparation is highly individualistic; however, it is generally recognized that different forms of beard preparation are required for ‘wet’ (razor blade) and ‘dry’ (electric razor) shaving. Chitosan is a polymer used in various pharmaceutical preparations but its use in cosmetic has not been much explored.

In the present work chitosan has been used to prepare a shaving gel. The prepared gel was evaluated for various parameters like pH, viscosity, foaming capacity, spreadibility, beard softening etc. The results are reported.
