Douglas Smythe joins us on Java Chat today to talk about his shaving journey. After college he moved to central America and after creating a popular bug repellant solution, his focus and passion turned to shaving and male grooming. He started with watching his dad shave as a child and turned it into his business, Phoenix Shaving.
In this episode, Douglas and Mike talk about the entire shaving routine- from the blades, to aftershaves, and even how to get a good lather. Douglas talks about how he started getting interested in shaving and how his products and designs are different from the rest.
Today, Douglas is still continuing his shaving business and things are running smoothly. He also has a podcast where they talk about the history of shaving and shaving techniques in an entertaining way. He also expresses his excitement about the annual Big Shave West conference he holds every year.
