There are special shaving creams for women, but the ingredients are similar to the ingredients of men's shaving cream. The main difference between men and women's shaving creams is the smell and texture. Women's shaving creams smell like florals or perfume and have a slightly creamy texture.
There are shaving creams, gels and foams on the market, and each works slightly different than the other. Creams and gels have more moisturizing properties than the foam, allowing the hair to soften faster and prevent nicks.
Overall, men and women can use each other's shaving cream or gel as long as the smell isn't bothersome. The ingredients will work the same on the hair and skin.
