New shaving cream with caffeine will get you going in the morningBy Mason White 12:04 PM January 3, 2014

Now, you can shave while having your caffeine.
A company has added caffeine to regular shaving cream.
The caffeine is absorbed through the skin and boosts energy within five minutes of applying it.
A bottle of 85 grams of the cream contains about 50 mg of caffeine, which is about the same level as a carbonated beverage like Coca Cola.
This shaving cream also helps reduce the redness and spots on the skin.
The shaving cream with caffeine was invented by Stan Ades, 43, of San Francisco, California, after he saw the gap in the market.
“There has been a lot of innovation in the razors and shavers market, but not for shaving creams,” Ades said.
“I saw that there was a gap in the market, and I know that caffeine is a vasoconstrictor and an antioxidant that helps reduce redness. It also keeps skin feeling healthy,” he added.
Ades discussed his idea with a chemist, and together they made the perfect blend of shaving cream with caffeine, which gives you an energy boost while it rejuvenates the skin.
Although the shaving cream is made from coffee beans, it does not smell of coffee, but instead, has a smell of peppermint oil.
