What is clay shaving soap?
What makes it “clay shaving soap"? We add bentonite clay and castor oil to our french milled soaps to give them a smooth and rich texture. Bentonite clay is an oil-absorber that provides a thick creamy feeling. Castor oil is a skin softener that also provides big fluffy bubbles. Mixed together, these ingredients give you a close shave that is perfect for sensitive skin! Use it directly on the skin so that you feel the slippery soap and not just the bubbles and use any razor you'd like.
What are glycerin shave soaps?
Glycerin shave soap is a little softer, more bubbly and more slick than clay shaving soap. Our shave pucks are massive 6 oz. bars that fill our shaving mugs nicely. It is a barbershop quality shaving soap that is made for sensitive skin. We offer a wide variety of manly scents. These shave soaps work best with a shaving mug and shave brush. If you are looking for things to do in Chattanooga, then visit our store and make your own shaving soap!
Do I need a shaving mug and brush?
Not necessarily. However, our all purpose soaps work best in the shower to shave your face, wash your body and your hair. Our soaps are hard bars of french milled soap that stay harder longer in the shower. If you'd prefer to slow down and use a shave mug and brush to get the perfect shave, then follow these easy steps. First, get your brush wet, swirl the soap into a lather, lather your face, and shave. You can leave the soap in our handmade mugs, but always rinse your brush with water and let it dry sideways on the built in handle.
What does aftershave do for my skin, and how do I use it?
Our Vitamin C Aftershave reduces any shaving irritation by extracting dirt, closing pores, adjusting pH and calming the skin.

Organic aloe is soothing, but you'll really love the anti-aging kick you get from the Vitamin C. Splash or apply with cotton ball to face after shaving or to simply clean your face. Feel free to choose our custom aftershave, add some extra essential oils and give yourself more bang for your buck!
