A soap formulated especially for traditional wet shaving
“Our first test recipes for shaving soap go right back to 2009 so this has been a long time in the pipeline. With the growing trend away from disposable razors and fake foam in a can we thought it was high time we shared our own unique formula with our clients.
When formulating this wet shave soap our focus was, as always, on people who prefer a genuinely natural product and those who might be sensitive to many of the additives commonly found in commercial products. Our batches are small and artisanal, meaning real hands working thoughtfully with real ingredients.
This soap is a fusion of liquid and solid soap making methods, resulting in a soap that loads easily onto the shaving brush. Many shaving soaps are made with manufactured stearic acid derived from palm oil, however, our soap is made with hand-rendered (by us) tallow from local, organic, grass-fed stock. The stearic acid naturally present in tallow, cacao and shea butter make for a lovely stable, creamy lather.
Our shaving soap also contains coconut oil, avocado oil and castor oil for a long-lasting lather that doesn’t dry delicate facial skin.|
Ingredients: Saponified Tallow (hand-rendered, local), Organic Cacao Butter, Organic Shea Butter, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Castor Oil, Avocado Oil, Essential Oils of Bergamot (Bergaptene-Free), Cedarwood, Patchouli
Conditioning Beard Oil 50mL ~ Abyssinica Seed oil · Argan oil
Featuring essential oils of Sandalwood, Cedarwood and Amyris, with a long-lasting, subtle aroma, Washpool Conditioning Beard Oil is formulated to moisturise and improve the condition of your beard, whilst softening the follicle texture and supporting a well groomed look.
“Whilst creating our beard oil, we realised that there was a little problem with standard beard oils that doesn’t seem to have been solved before. You see, standard beard oils coat the beard but being a blend of oils they don’t penetrate well and need to be shampooed out at the end of the day. And so the vicious cycle continues, leading to the original problem ~ a dry beard that doesn’t feel soft.
Not satisfied with releasing a beard oil that was a simple variation on the same theme, we took up the challenge to create a formula that really performs, constantly improving the condition of the beard. While performance is paramount we also prioritised the importance of well groomed looks and a natural scent with long lasting base notes of Sandalwood, Cedarwood & Amyris.
Washpool’s Conditioning Beard oil contains Crambisol ™, which has been shown to increase hair elasticity by over 190% when used daily. The key ingredient, Crambe Abyssinica seed oil alleviates dryness, nourishes and protects both skin and hair, ensuring manageability and a sensual skin feel.
Our conditioning ingredients* allow easy rinsing with no requirement for shampoo, leaving the hair and skin feeling soft. *Palm oil free. ”
