Aftershave Lotions are products intended to be used by men after they have finished shaving. These products typically contain alcohol to freshen the skin and a moisturizer to soften the skin. The alcohol in Aftershave Lotions functions by closing pores in the skin and by preventing irritation, commonly known as razor burn. The safety of Aftershave Lotions is established by selection of ingredients that are safe and suitable for this purpose. In addition, Aftershave Lotions are assessed for their potential to cause skin or eye irritation or cause allergic reactions. Product safety is also established through strict adherence to the principles of Quality Assurance and Good Manufacturing Practices. This includes testing the compatibility of the product with packaging as well as shelf-life stability. Finally, the safety of products is monitored in the market-place to track any reports of consumer injury. Companies include a phone number on their products where comments or complaints may be reported.
