Whiskey Shave Soap

$9.00

A very carefully researched & formulated shave soap recipe, this shave soap lathers up with a thick, creamy lather that leaves you with soft, smooth skin that is visibly improved with regular use. Hibiscus infusion improves skin elasticity while firming & lifting, bentonite clay protects skin from micro-cuts, and lanolin keeps skin incredibly moisturized. The essential oil blend is inspired by the scent notes of an excellent whiskey.

Stearic acid is a white, waxy, natural acid found in vegetable fats, and gives a dense, creamy lather. It has a slight cooling effect on the skin.

Lanolin

Lanolin is a naturally occurring wax that is secreted by the glands of sheep and other wool bearing animals that helps them shed water from their coats. Because lanolin is very similar in composition to the oils secreted by our own skin it’s able to provide a protective moisture barrier, which can help moisturize & heal even the worst dry, cracked, damaged skin. In shave soap it helps prevent skin from drying out even with repeated shavings while at the same time giving you a rich, creamy lather to help prevent nicks and razor burn.

Bentonite Clay

Bentonite clay creates the slip needed for your razor to glide smoothly over the skin, reducing nicks, cuts, and razor-burn. Bentonite clay also helps reduce inflammation & heals the skin.

Castor Oil

Castor oil helps soothe inflamed skin, while giving the shave soap a rich & creamy lather. It is antibacterial, anti-fungal, and high in vitamin E, which helps heal & protect the skin.

Hibiscus

Hibiscus is known as one of the most powerful anti-ageing products – it can actually increase your skin’s elasticity, keeping it looking younger and fresher for longer. It can help even skin tone, fight pollution and other skin damaging free radicals, and even gently exfoliate your skin with a natural slight acidity. It is also great for moisturizing, and is gentle on sensitive skin. 5 Hibiscus benefits for beautiful skin

What Does "Saponified" Mean?

What Does “Saponified” Mean?

Saponification is the chemical reaction used in the soap making process. When the oils and fats are combined with lye (a strong alkali) they are called saponified. At the end of the process the lye is all gone, and you are left with just soap. To learn more about this, have a look at my blog post on the subject.

 

About “Filler” Oils

About “Filler” Oils

Cheaper oils are often used as a “filler” but I don’t use them because they don’t add much nutrient value to the soap.

I don’t use palm oil in any of my products, since its production is harmful to the environment, destroying critical habitat for many endangered species, as well as being linked with the eviction of forest-dwelling peoples. Find out more here.

I only use high quality oils and butters that are filled with beneficial nutrients for the skin. Learn more about this on my blog.
