To enjoy your natural soap to the very last bubble:
Cut larger bars in half and use half at a time.
Use a soap dish that offers drainage (e.g. slotted soap dish) and has good ventilation so the soap can dry fully between uses.
Store soaps not in use in a covered container that allows air circulation and in a cool, dry and well ventilated place.
Cedarwood Atlas & Lavender - Shaving Bar Soap
- Soak your shaving brush for a few minutes in warm water.
- Pour a teaspoon or two of water on top of the soap to help soften it and allow the brush to pick up the soap more easily.
- Take out the soaked brush from the water and gently squeeze out some of the water. Please note that if the brush is too dry it won’t be able to pick up the soap so please experiment to determine what works best for your brush.
- Make sure to get rid of any excess water on the soap.
- Gently swirl the brush directly onto the soap, loading the soap into the brush for about 40 seconds and adjust when necessary. Make sure your brush is fully loaded with thick creamy soap lather and with no bubbles or watery lather. If your lather shows many visible bubbles or is watery then you either have not loaded enough soap or you have too much water in your brush.
- Continue swirling calming the brush on the soap until the water is fully incorporated. Make sure the lather has no visible bubbles. Add a few drops of water if needed, do the same thing again and again until the water is fully incorporated and your lather reaches the desired thickness.
- Once the lather has reached a uniform thickness take the brush to your face and swirl gently and calmly.
- Apply side by side or up and down brush strokes with the thick lather on your face to make the lather pop.
- Add a few drops of water as needed either manually or by dipping the tips of the brush into water to create more lather.
- In a short time you will be rewarded with a thick slick lather that will give you a close, comfortable shave.
What kind of brush works best?
It is a matter of personal preference; you can either try a soft brush or a brush with a little backbone.
