Description: An unusual blend of indigenous essential oils with buchu, African wormwood and African bluegrass.
A natural shave soap with an abundant thick lather to give a close shave while leaving your skin smooth and soft. It’s enriched with shea butter and cocoa butter to condition and nourish your skin.
- Cocoa butter is loaded with vitamins and minerals.
- Unrefined Ghanaian shea butter adds extra conditioning, hydrating and soothing properties to our bars.
Note: Due to the nature of pure, natural ingredients used, there may be slight variations from batch to batch. This does not affect product quality.
- Shave during or after a hot shower
- Give your shaving brush a good soaking with hot water
- Shake the brush a bit – you want it wet, not waterlogged
- Take the brush and swirl it over the surface of the soap to generate a rich lather – it will be bubbly at first but as you swirl the lather will become thicker
- Apply the rich lather with the brush until it covers all the areas you want to shave.
- Shave with the grain of your beard
- For a very close shave, you can re-lather and shave very gently across the grain
- Rinse with cold water
- Apply a beard oil to moisturise your skin.
