These Nourishing Shaving Soaps are handcrafted with natural and organic ingredients and are created to build a luxurious and satisfying lather during a traditional wet shave.
The key to a good shaving soap is a high fat content so skin is protected during the shave, it will also nourish your skin so it doesn't become dry and irritated. A good shaving soap is economically a great choice as it lasts a long time, and it is a wonderful option for your skin because it adds, not detracts, moisture. Ingredients such as olive oil, shea butter and avocado will do just that, nourish and protect skin during and after the shave. We've also added bentonite clay which brings slip to help the razor glide over the skin, and colloidal oats which help protect and soothe. Pair with one of our new Shaving Bowl & Brush sets for a wonderful gift for yourself, or someone you love.

Directions for a traditional shave:
-Wet your brush under running hot water and allow it adequate time to absorb water.
-Don‘t tap too much excess water off the brush, then lather up the soap using circular motions directly in a container or vessel of your choice. At first, the bubbles will appear large, but as you keep going, they will increase in number and become smaller. After a short while you should have achieved a thick, warm lather.
-Apply and massage the warm lather with the soaped brush evenly across your face in circular motions. This will also increase the lather‘s density, soften your whiskers, and allow them to stand up, allowing the razor to sit close to the base of the hair follicle. The longer you whisk, the richer the lather, the smoother the shave and the more your skin will be protected.
-Empty excess water from the soap container and leave it open so it can air-dry.
Other great choices for guys:
I decided to give this a try since I always get 5 o'clock stubble on my legs after using shaving cream and my legs get so dry very easily. I feel like I've been scammed my entire life by other products because my legs felt like butter after using this bar, and it was the closest shave of my life! Almost as close as a wax! I'll literally never use anything else, and I've been telling everyone I know!!
Gave this as a gift. I have not heard one way or the other if they like the soap.
As an 85 year old man-of-the-north-woods I like a close, quick shave that lets me get on with my day. This soap kept my skin from drying out, with a lather that held my hairs up and allowed my razor to get a clean, close shave. My skin feels clean and smooth after I shave and I like the smell. The best shaving soap.
