Reminiscent of the olde tyme barber shops, "Close Shave" will deliver just that. This shaving soap is designed to create a rich, creamy lather to make shaving an enjoyable experience for your skin. Carefully chosen essential oils provide the fresh, clean scent, while also handpicked for skin loving benefits. The addition of bentonite clay will give your razor good "slip" while also helping to prevent razor burn. Great for all genders, excellent for the face, legs, and anywhere else you need silky smooth! Each soap is perfectly round to accommodate a shaving cup/bowl to create a lovely, creamy lather.
All soaps are created using the cold process method of soap making, using nourishing organic oils and butters to pamper your skin, and always cured for a minimum of 4 weeks for the best, long lasting bar.

As bars are hand-cut, expect slight variations in weight, with each bar weighing approximately 4-4.5 ounces. A shaving brush is recommended to achieve the best results. Optional shave brush add-on is made of nylon bristles. Shaving cup not included.
Handcrafted soaps are naturally rich in glycerin. Glycerin is a humectant that attracts water to your skin. While that's wonderful for your body, it does require a little extra care of your soap.
Allow your soap to dry naturally by storing it on a draining soap dish or rack. This allows air to circulate around it and prolongs its lifespan. Keep your soap out of direct stream of water or submerged in water for too long. Unused soaps should be stored in a cool, dry place.
For best results, it is recommended to use with a shaving brush. Use bowl or cup and bloom soap (if desired) by allowing it to rest in hot water for several minutes, then drain. Load soap by swirling a damp shaving brush in a circular motion over the surface of the soap to build lather. Keep your handcrafted soap lasting longer by allowing it to dry between uses.
