Shaving Soap & Bamboo Soap Dish
Proper shaving soap.
Shaving is, for most men, a daily and sometimes painful chore, so we've used a generous amount of shea butter to produce a dense, protective layer of foam, plus lots of glycerine to keep the blade sliding across your skin and prevent nicks. This soap is made from a rich mix of oils that will help the blade glide across your skin with litlle effort. The dense foam created by coconut, rapeseed, castor and olive oils to name but a few help protect your tender skin during this dangerous daily ritual.
Our customers tell us that, having tried this once, they wouldn't use anything else. Shaving foams can be very drying and the revelation that a well-made soap works far better is very satisfying. The soap comes complete in its own ceramic bowl and is scented with earthy Clary Sage & fresh Lime essential oils or a woody mix of Cedarwood & Lemongrass. It's very long lasting, but we know you will want to use this again, and refills are available. Both are made with the same rich base oils, both have a citrus kick, you just get to choose whether that's partnered with a herby or a woody friend.
