Certified organic to USDA National Organic Program standards, the fair trade Dr Bronner's Unscented Organic Shaving Soap is smooth and effective to use, without containing any synthetic ingredients. Just the way we like it.
Key ingredient organic shikakai, from the seed pods of the small South Asian tree Acacia concinna, has been used for millennia in India as a gentle conditioning cleanser for both skin and hair. The organic shikakai from organic sugar and organic grape juice is combined with Dr Bronner's unsurpassed pure-castile liquid soap base, creating a soothing and moisturising glide along with superior hair lift and wetting.
Directions: Great for both men and women. Squirt a little bit of Shaving Soap onto your hands and rub them together for a good lather. Apply to face, underarms, legs - wherever you please - and continue to rub soap into skin and hair, enhancing the lather and preparing skin for a good, clean shave. Works best right out of the shower—when skin is moist and hairs are soft!
Although this shaving gel does foam up on your face it doesn’t quite make shaving happen smoothly. The whiskers are still a little difficult to cut leaving your face a little sore and with a nick. This product was just ‘ not quite right ‘ for me. I have returned to my original shaving cream.
A little goes a long way
I keep coming back to this shaving soap after trying many others as I feel it does a good job and I’m so glad it is being stocked here now. You don’t need much as a little foams up really well. It does have a slight scent but I don’t find it bothersome. It is however very runny so I store it upside down and am careful when pouring it out as wastage can be an issue - it would probably be better in a pump bottle. But I no longer get irritations from shaving and my very sensitive skin feels softer so it’s definitely a keeper for me!
