There is a nostalgic pleasure of choosing a scent and wielding a shave brush the way your grandfather did. Shaving soaps made their first appearance in the 14th century and were popular until shaving creams became widely available. Shaving soaps still remain popular with shavers making shaving an activity rather than a dreaded obligation. It is the experience!

Mammy's handmade shaving soap recipe is made with skin nourishing oils and butters to include Coconut and Jojoba oils, and Shea butter provide a lather that is thicker and richer than most creams, while providing lubrication and cushion, and abundant moisturization leaving an excellent post-shave feel. The addition of bentonite clay provides detoxifying qualities and extra razor "glide".

TO USE: Wet your shave brush (see listings below to purchase) under running hot water or fill up your sink with hot water and soak brush in the water for at least a minute. Badger hair brush is a good choice, as unlike synthetic (nylon) fibers, badger hair is naturally soft and retains water like a sponge. The point of the brush bristles soaking up the hot water is to retain the moisture so it gets directly to your face to soften your beard hairs and open pores. Don‘t tap too much excess water off the brush. Lather up the soap using circular motions directly in the container (or remove an almond-size portion from the jar and put in your own shave soap mug) After 20 seconds or so 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 (which 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. Adding a bit more hot water will normally provide re-lathering for second or third passes without using more soap. Empty excess water from the shave soap jar or mug and leave open to dry.

There may be variations to each bar's color, shape, scent and/or form because the essentials are handmade with natural ingredients. Some bars made with vanilla will brown overtime. Soap continues to cure overtime and the weight may slightly decrease over time, however, this will give you a longer lasting bar of soap. Packaging may vary from the photo.
