We have a new shave soap cooling in the molds! This dual lye hot process shaving soap is formulated to provide an abundant, thick, stable lather and contains skin loving mango and shea butters as well as coconut and rice bran oils. All goodness with none of the chemicals in commercial shave products.
Cedar Leather is a classic men's fresh scent, woodsy and amber with an evocative musk and tonka bean base note. It complements our Cedar Leather cold process soap that our customers have been raving about for the past year.
You may be asking, what's the big deal with a dual lye shave soap? And what exactly is dual lye?
All soaps are made with lye, and there are two types which are used in different applications. Lye is mixed with a combination of oils to create soap. During the mixing process, the lye and oils create a chemical reaction called saponification. This is absolutely necessary to create soap that is gentle and safe to use. Lye, on its own, is very caustic and must be handled with great care.
Sodium hydroxide is the lye used to make bar soap, and potassium hydroxide is used to make liquid soap. When combined in a specific proportion, these two lyes work with the oils to create a softer bar of soap, and the specific oils used create the full, thick, stable lather that is a signature of shaving soap.
Our shaving soaps feature mango and shea butters along with coconut oil, rice bran oil and plant derived stearic acid, resulting in a luxurious shaving lather. This shave soap would be perfect for men and women, particularly those who want a lighter scent or have sensitive skin.
We offer our shave soaps in covered metal tins -- so convenient for travelling!
