We’ve made some big improvements to our Version 2 shave soap base. We’ve upped the moisturizing power and added some luxury skin food like organic argan oil, hydrolyzed oat protein and goat milk. There is more slip, more cushion and more creaminess helping you to get an even better shave. We’re excited for you to try it out, coming Monday August 24th!
RASPBERRY METHEGLIN SHAVE SOAP (JUNE 16th)
Notes: Raspberry, Raw Honeycomb, Ginger, Vanilla, Rosehip, Hibiscus, Beeswax
I draw inspiration for our scents from a lot of different things—this one comes from a mead (honey wine) that I made a few months ago. I knew the combination of flavours would translate well into a niche scent for our shave soap (metheglin is a variety of mead that is made with herbs and spices).
Raspberry and raw honeycomb make up the main notes, supported by ginger and a touch of florals from hibiscus, rosehip and my recently acquired beeswax absolute, all softened by a touch of vanilla.
This, like our Summer Cabin, was made by adding in the scents a week after we made the actual base—something only possible because of the softness of the soap. I’m hoping that this will allow scents to remain more true to the original blend.
Made with our V4 base.
