Foaming soap to prepare, lubricate and soothe skin during shaving. A blend of palm, coconut and olive oil, infused with the scent of ginger and lotus. No synthetic ingredients added. Made in Germany since 1840. (
Created by a German soap manufacturer in its fifth generation of family ownership, this shaving soap contains only naturally occurring ingredients. Compared to other options on the market, the soap has a high percentage of moisturizing ingredients that help to prepare the skin for shaving as well as soothe afterward. During the production process, the soap formula is rolled and pressed five times – as opposed to the standard three times – for a more concentrated, potent product.
Apply to wet skin to create a lather for a smooth shave.
Never leave soap wet, as the extra water will compromise the formula and will cause it to develop cracks.
In 1840, a German journeyman traveled to St. Petersburg, Russia, to learn the art of soap making. He returned to Germany a master soap boiler, and opened a workshop in Heidelberg. Thus, the foundation was laid for the soap traditions that continue today.
The shave soap was first introduced in the 1920s, and the process remains much the same: vegetable oils are boiled with alkali (water soluble salts) to create a soap base. Skin soothing and nourishing ingredients, natural scents and essential oils are then added. The mixture is put through a pelleting machine, which rolls and presses the product into a homogenous solid mass. The industry standard is to roll the soap formula three times, but this company has a five-rolling process to create a more compressed, concentrated product. Finally, the solid mass is put through molds either by hand or with presses that are over 100 years old.
