The Dragon's Blood INCI Croton Lechleri Resin Powder offers several benefits that make it suitable for post shave such as anti-inflammatory and wound healing effects, healing microcuts, skin repair and regeneration, improved barrier function, and high proanthocyanidin content. Proanthocyanidin are polyphenols that gives the color to many fruits and vegetables. More like and offense and defense molecules.

The toner is designed to calm the skin down after it is exposed to a high pH product like the lye based soap and scraping with a steel blade.  All lye based soaps will have a high pH of over 9 while our skin pH hovers around 4.5 to 5. Skin pH depends on the individual's acid mantle which is different for everyone. 
I currently use unscented Thayers after I shave as well as every time I wash my face. This step seems to have helped my face in a lot of ways....I assume in part to some of the properties of the witch hazel. Is it ok to stack the WK unscented toner on top after the Thayers? I’m not under the impression this is a redundant step since the WK toner doesn’t have witch hazel in it. Is it best to apply the WK toner to a damp face? Any other tips? I appreciate it’s completely scentless profile and have been looking to incorporate HA as much as I can...Thanks Sri

You can layer the unscented toner on top of Thayers.  Applying the toner on a damp face will help the HA use the moisture on the face to provide long term hydration.  Applying on a moist face is especially useful during winter when the air is dry and humidity is low.  And wear sunscreeen. Taking care of our face does not end with shaving Smile.

I do that too but add an extra step in with the GD post shave serum - hot rinse - cold rinse - pat dry - witch hazel - GD post shave serum - aftershave / toner / balm.  I let the serum soak in a bit before finishing.

I have to say the more I use this new base, the more impressed I’m becoming.

I’ve never seen a soap stay SO dense while being so wet it drips off the brush. Just incredible.

That's good news Sean,  said me, the soap buyer.
