We just put up our new Shaving Soap on our website. It is available in Bay Rum and was created at the request of one of our customers, Leavitt and Peirce, a store in Cambridge, Massachusetts. They specialize in shaving products. Our new shaving soap is 2 7/8″ in diameter so it will fit into most shaving bar holders. It weighs approx. 3.5 oz. and produces a great fluffy, conditioning lather. (We sent test samples up to Leavitt & Peirce for approval during our development phase.) We used castor oil to help achieve the great conditioning lather. Bentonite clay was also added for “slip” so that you can get a smooth, close shave. Of course it’s all natural, made with all vegetable oils and no animal testing, just like all of our products.
The Bay Rum scent is a classic. It is a rich, spicy sweet scent that we create from a blend of Bay, Bergamot and Pettigrain essential oils. Then as a finishing touch we hand stamp the bars with the words “BAY RUM” and wrap them in pleated paper.
Over the years we have a few requests for a shaving bar and thanks to Leavitt & Peirce we finally got down to business and got it done. You can get yours here – Shaving Bar by Susan’s Soaps & More.
