Shaving soap is a type of soap that lathers up to create a source of lubrication for you to shave your face. It helps the shaving razor glide across your face without irritating your skin, giving you a smooth and comfortable shaving experience.
How do you use shaving soap?
To use shaving soap, you'll need a basin of water and a shaving brush. It is recommended that you use hot water for this, at the same temperature that you'd take a bath in. You'll want to wet your brush and begin to stir around the tin of shaving soap. The aim is to generate a thick lather of soap and begin applying it to your face. Add more water if the consistency is too thick, or lather up more soap if the consistency is too watery. We advise that you test of various consistencies to see what works best for you.
Shaving soap vs shaving cream/foam
Shaving soap comes in a solid block of soap that requires an extra step to lather up and shave with. Shaving cream/foam, on the other hand, comes in a pressurised can and is already lathered up and ready to use. The advantage of shaving foam is the convenience, but it is usually made with more artificial ingredients, whereas shaving soap is more natural and traditional.
Will it dry my skin out?
The act of shaving can be a process that can damage your skin. The hot water, along with the blade gliding across your face, can cause damage to your skin and dry it out. The shaving soap is there to act as a defence to stop the blade irritating your skin, and the ingredients of the soap are aimed towards keeping your skin moisturised and hydrated. We work hard on our formulas to provide you with a shaving soap that will actively stop your skin from drying out.
