A waste-free skin-loving way to get smooth

Palm-free Traditional Block o' Shaving Soap


A traditional creamy shaving soap that turns to shaving cream for your closest shave. Enriched with shea and cocoa butters to leave your skin feeling silky smooth. Unisex, works its magic anywhere on the body. 

This soap is the real deal. Given an energetic rub on the skin or with a shaving brush, it produces gloriously thick creamy silky shaving foam that will help the razor glide close to the skin, giving you your best shave possible.

Pair it with one of our Plastic-Free Safety Razors in a variety of colours and shaving will turn from a chore into a pamper ritual.

Choose from two options:

- Cool Blue - a refreshing blend of Eucalyptus, Spearmint and Lavender, enriched with skin-loving butters

- Gentle Jane - for sensitive skin, free of essential oils, enriched with kawakawa and hemp, and skin-loving butters

HOW TO USE: Work up a thick creamy lather by vigorously rubbing directly onto wet skin, or work up thick shaving foam using a shaving brush. For the best experience & maximum longevity of your soap, ensure it dries between uses. PLEASE NOTE: because of the nature of this soap and its high glycerin content, it will feel sticky if kept in a damn environment.
