Our shave soap uses only organic vegetable oils (rather than animal fat). Most soaps are passed through three rolling or pelleting machines to produce a smooth, homogenous product. Ours goes through five, resulting in a denser and therefore longer lasting soap. It is then molded by a press dating back more than a century. Each is inspected for flaws before arriving in your home. It’s lightly scented with a leather and citrus fragrance that’s sourced from a perfumer in Grasse, France.
The shave soap comes from a family owned company – now in its fifth generation – which started when the founder opened a workshop in Heidelberg in 1840, using methods he learned in St. Petersburg, Russia. ?The original recipe for the shave soap was introduced to the product line in the 1920s.
Don’t leave the soap in water-logged areas. Since the tin is made of aluminum it should not rust.
The company uses essential oils and exotic plant extracts, and implemented quality checks of the suppliers to ensure high quality. The collection now includes liquid soaps, hair and body shampoos, and body oils – all made with sustainable, organic plant ingredients.
Our shave soap uses organic plant oils that are gentle on the skin. Comes in aluminum tin with twist lid for grooming on the go. Made by the oldest soap manufacturer in Germany since 1840.
