Shaving Soap

What is shaving soap?

Shaving soap typically refers to a hard soap that is whipped into a lather using a shaving brush. The lather it produces provides protection and lubrication for the razor during your wet shave.  Shaving soap has been used for centuries for its ability to provide a close, comfortable shave. It is also a more natural product than shaving gels, as many shaving soaps are artisan made and may not contain any artificial fragrances or preservatives.

There are typically two main types of shaving soap; tallow or vegan. Tallow shaving soaps are produced using a form of beef fat known as 'tallow' whereas a vegan shaving soap base uses butters and oils.

Here are some of the benefits of using shaving soap:

  • Close shave: Shaving soap can provide a close shave that is comparable to or even better than what you can get with shaving cream.
  • Comfortable: Shaving soap is typically seen as being more gentle on the skin than shaving cream.
  • Natural: Shaving soap is a more natural product than shaving cream, as it may not contain any artificial fragrances or preservatives.
  • Long-lasting: Shaving soap can last for many shaves, making it a more cost-effective option than shaving gels.
  • Aroma: Shaving soaps come in a variety of scents, so you can find one that you enjoy.

If you are looking for a traditional, natural shaving product that can provide a close, comfortable shave, shaving soap is a great option.
