The natural additives in this soap include lichen which has soothing, purifying, antibacterial and calming properties and cranberry which makes it suitable for sensitive skin. The formulation of this soap means the foam it produces is lighter and requires less water to build it up. This foam forms a protective film on the skin reducing the friction of the blade during shaving. Saponificio Varesino recommend covering the soap with boiling water for 5 minutes prior to use, draining and reserving the water used to moisten the face before lathering.
The soap’s wonderful fragrance has top notes of agar wood and floral and woody scents of patchouli with base notes of amber, sandalwood and leather to compliment the shaving soap.
The soap is now supplied in an attractive metal tin with a screw lid. 150g.
