Lemongrass + Tea Tree Shaving Soap
We have formulated this recipe with a base of Olive Oil, Coconut Oil and Shea Butter to moisturize and leave the skin feeling naturally soft. We have also included some French Yellow Clay in this soap for its clarifying properties, as it helps to draw out toxins from the pores.
Lemongrass and Tea Tree essential oils are both refreshing and uplifting as well as being antifungal and anti bacterial.
This shaving soap is great for anyone who’s interested in natural skin care or an alternative to aerosol shaving foams.
Use with our traditional bristled shaving brush to create an incredibly creamy lather and apply.

WorkshopAll of our products are made with the best natural ingredients we can find and lovingly crafted at our cottage in the Herefordshire countryside.
No Parabens, Artificial Colours
We use the cold process method when making all our soaps and also a process called super-fatting. Doing this allows us to keep the free oils and the naturally occurring glycerine. This is what makes them so exceptionally moisturising.

I received my shaving soap as a present and have been using it for 3 months and have more than half left and it gives me a good shave whether at the sink in the bath or the shower so it gets my recommendation
I have been using your shaving soaps for 18 months now. They have totally Transformed my shaving ritual and they are by far the best value for money and long lasting shaving product I have ever owned
Hi James, I don't suppose you could help me out here. I've tried both the listed instructions above plus the classic wet and dry shave methods, however I can't seem to get a good lather with this soap. it always seems to be too foamy and just vanishes from my face with 30secs. When I shave with soaps like proraso and wilkinsons there are no issues at all. Thanks
Hi JD, sorry to have not replied sooner. In my experience you have to vary dependent on the water. In areas with harder water I don’t soften the soap first, I ensure my shaving brush bristles are warm and damp and I squeeze a lot of the water out. I find that this charges the brush head with lather that I can then reapply to my face to keep it lubricated. I can recover my face three times. This is similar to a traditional wet shave so I get very good results and my skin is vastly improved.

Hi JD Sorry to hear you are having problems with the shaving soap. We normally get good feedback with this product. Is it possible you live in a very hard water area? 'Hard water has a higher concentration of minerals such as calcium carbonate, calcium and magnesium compared to soft water which has less. ' This can interfere with the lather of a hand made soap. You could try using distilled water, or water from your water filter to see if this makes a difference.
