What is a shaving soap?
Shaving soaps or shaving blocks are a specific type of soap meant for use in the act of shaving. They differ from regular soap in that they often contain ingredients that are beneficial to the skin, such as oils and glycerine.
Shaving soaps also typically come in solid form, as a bar, as opposed to liquid form. This makes them easier to lather up and apply to the skin.
Why should you use a shaving soap?
Shaving bars are a great alternative to traditional shaving cream. They lather up better than cream and leave your skin feeling smoother, this is because shaving soap typically has less water and higher glycerine than creams, which helps create a more lubricated shave.
Our shaving soaps are made with natural ingredients, so they're gentle on your skin. Commercial shaving creams are often loaded with chemicals that can dry out your skin or cause irritation.
