We understand not everyone wants the shag, so when it's time to 'axe' off your fantastic facial forest, turn to us to keep you old-school. We took inspiration from a 1930’s recipe to create our Axed Shave soap. It has a luxurious lather with a fresh scent of bergamot and weighing in at over 100 grams it will last for months. Killer news for your wallet and the environment because we don't use plastic to wrap our soap - just good ole fashioned recycled paper that you can throw in the recycling or compost bin! Our shaving soap is a blend of hydrating botanicals and bentonite clay formulated for superior slip to facilitate a razor-close shave, clove and bergamot oil also acts to calm and soften the skin. Axed shaving soap will produce a fine rich lather and is made from quality locally sourced ingredients, small batch produced and ready to use in your favourite shaving bowl.
Directions for use: Soak your brush and soap for ten minutes. Rub the brush against the shaving soap in a circular motion. Press hard enough to get enough soap on the bristles. Add water to create a lather and keep swirling until the bubbles change from large to small. Apply to face and then shave. Make sure you keep your soap and brush clean to avoid infection to the skin.
Our packaging is minimalist, recycled, and as environmentally friendly as possible. By not individually wrapping our soaps, we are saving one time use packaging from ending up in landfills.
PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR SOAPS ARE MADE TO BE LOW SCENTED THIS IS BECAUSE WE ONLY USE HIGH QUALITY ESSENTIAL OILS AND PURE BOTANICALS IN OUR RECIPES WHICH HAS A MILDER SCENT THAN ARTIFICIAL FRAGRANCES
Handcrafted soaps are high in glycerine, which attracts water, hence they should not be left sitting in water as this will cause them to melt. To extend the life of your soap, use a well draining soap dish to ensure your soap dries completely after each use.
