Warning: Once you try a real shaving soap like this, it’s hard to go back to a commercial shaving cream. It smells great too, as it has essential oils of Cedarwood Atlas, fir needle and orange 5-fold. With the addition of bentonite clay, it makes for some extra ‘slip’ and works to purify your skin, sort of like a mud mask would do. The addition of castor oil helps give this soap a thick, creamy lather. So grab your favorite shaving brush and you’re all set.
Using multiple oils contributes to the complexity of the lather: coconut oil for rich bubbly lather; palm oil to contribute to a stable, creamy, hard bar; sunflower oil for conditioning and lather; olive oil for conditioning; castor oil for lather and creaminess; and cocoa butter for conditioning.
This combination of ingredients fulfill all the characteristics you would want in a shaving soap: an abundance of lather, lubricating, protective, fragrant and a long lasting bar.
