Shaving soap with Bentonite Clay
We have had several requests for a shaving soap so here’s our version. It is made with castor, coconut, olive, palm and sunflower oils as well as moisturizing cocoa butter. It also contains bentonite clay. Bentonite clay is often referred to as a “healing clay” as it is said to be able to draw toxins out of the skin and contains many minerals including magnesium, calcium, silica, sodium, copper and iron. Our shaving soap is also scented with the mild, rich aroma of sandalwood essential oil.
There are several important differences to consider when using an all-natural shaving bar of soap as opposed to shaving cream. First, good quality shaving soap contains high levels of glycerin which locks in water and hydrates your skin. Unlike store-bought soap, one of the main components of our handmade soap is glycerin. Second, unlike shaving cream, a fully-cured bar of our handmade soap will last several months especially if left to dry between uses on one of our soap dishes.
(This soap contains palm oil.)
* each bar weighs approx. 4 oz. prior to curing.
* each bar is approx. 2.75” wide x 3” high x 1” thick.
Ingredients: coconut oil, sunflower oil, castor oil, olive oil, cocoa butter, sodium hydroxide, distilled water, cedarwood/tea tree essential oil blend and Bentonite clay.
