Green Mountain Soap Company spent three years crafting a shaving soap recipe and a triple milled production process. They knew that the formulation would be significantly different from our other bar soaps. Shave soap must have different performance properties when compared to hand soap. Shave soap lather must be abundant, dense, long-lasting, protective, and it must have "glide" so that the razor will not skip or chatter across your skin. Each of these properties is controlled and affected by the choice of oils, the ratio of types of caustic used to react the oils, and how the soap is processed and triple milled as it goes from raw materials to finished puck.
Their formulation includes a generous percentage of tallow for a creamy, sturdy, slick lather. Oils were chosen that create a high glycerin content and enhance the moisturizing effects of the soap. The shaving soap contains no artificial ingredients or preservatives. The soap performs well in hard water, though like any true soap, very hard water can degrade its performance. We recommend using a badger hair brush. And the lather is thirsty so use more water then you are typically use to for best results.
Unscented: This shaving soap has not been scented with any essential oils, though you will notice it has a fresh natural smell from the ingredients used to make it. All pure oils used in Green Mountain Soap are food grade. This shaving soap is designed for people who may have allergies to scents or have developed dermal sensitization to certain natural botanicals. It's also ideal for people who demand pure, natural products or who don't want a scented shaving soap that will clash with their signature personal scent. 4.25 ounce puck
