By popular demand - our traditional shaving soap in a puck form.
Designed for use in a shaving cup or bowl. Comes wrapped in wax paper, meaning less packaging for those who are environmentally conscious.
This is the same product as our Scent Free Shaving Soap , but in a puck form instead of in a plastic container.
A soap formulated especially for traditional wet shaving
Our first test recipes for shaving soap go right back to 2009 so this has been a long time in the pipeline. With the growing trend away from disposable razors and fake foam in a can we thought it was high time we shared our own unique formula with our clients.
When formulating this wet shave soap our focus was, as always, on people who prefer a genuinely natural product and those who might be sensitive to many of the additives commonly found in commercial products. Our batches are small and artisanal, meaning real hands working thoughtfully with real ingredients.
This soap is a fusion of liquid and solid soap making methods, resulting in a soap that loads easily onto the shaving brush. Many shaving soaps are made with manufactured stearic acid derived from palm oil, however, our soap is made with hand-rendered (by us) tallow from local, organic, grass-fed stock. The stearic acid naturally present in tallow, cacao and shea butter make for a lovely stable, creamy lather.
Our shaving soap also contains coconut oil, avocado oil and castor oil for a long-lasting lather that doesn't dry delicate facial skin.
We offer two essential oil blends for your shaving pleasure, as well as an unscented lanolin version for those (like me) who dig its earthy scent and skin-soothing benefits.

Irritation, gone!17 April 2020I was getting slight skin irritation with the other two scented shaving soaps, which was leaving my face a bit red and raw. So, figuring it could be the essential oils my face was reacting to, I tried the unscented. Voila, no irritation! Has a great earthy scent and lathers perfectly. - Owen
Great Shaving Soap17 January 2020Foams up beautifully for a good lather and is lasting really well. Sits in a dish in our shower and is still nice and firm. Love that it arrived in packaging that could ALL go into our compost bin. Great product, highly recommend.
