Island Time Shaving soap
About our Island Time shaving soap
Our Island Time shaving soap is a traditional lime and coconut shaving soap. Most of all this wonderful scent invokes a sense of being at the beach and relaxing in the sun. In addition lime has the properties of being sparkly, deep, warm and great for stress reduction. Coconut is very soothing to the skin.
Why scent can be important
First of all our sense of smell is linked in with memory. This is why different smells can invoke different reactions. Consequently they can transport us back in time linking us into the powerful memories of childhood and wonderful life experiences. Our Island Time shaving soap has calming qualities and is both soothing to the skin and also to ones spirit.
About our ingredients
Especially relevant is that we have sourced a sustainable ingredients including palm oil (stearic acid), coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter and avocado oil provide excellent moisturising qualities. As a result the butters have been chosen for their lathering qualities. In addition their moisturising qualities will leave your skin with a lovely post shave feel.The lanolin has been sourced ethically and is cruelty free. It has not been tested on animals and is made in beautiful country NSW.
To get the best out of our soap it should be used with a shaving brush. Start by soaking your brush in water and then remove excess water by gently shaking the brush. Next load your brush from the tub until you have what resembles a paste on the tips of your brush hairs. You can then either lather up on your face or in bowl. You can add small amounts of water (drips off your fingers) at a time until you have a thick lather. The aim is a meringue like texture with peaks. It should have the consistency of yoghurt as this gives superb glide and protection as you shave.
If you have any form of reaction please stop using the soap. It is more likely that you are sensitive to the essential oils in the soap and not the soap itself.
