Real soap takes us back in time – Shave the old fashioned way

Real soap

It was over 5 years ago that I first wrote ‘Shave the Old Fashioned Way’.  Being the holiday season when we are all looking for gifts for loved ones, I thought it an appropriate time to share this again.  What could be a more ideal gift than a real, honest and true old fashioned home made soap. Men do love the bars, but woman, too, have become avid shampoo bar fans. Shampoo and Shave.

The elderly will remember it. The young will gain a new experience. And all will say thank you.

‘Shave the Old -Fashioned Way’

Shave the good old-fashioned way with cold processed soaps.  Here is why.

For most men, the morning shave ritual is the typical start to the day.
Some use electric razors, others prefer shaving with creams, soaps and or oils.

For some, this shaving ritual can be an uncomfortable experience, not like the smiling faces and satisfied grins seen on TV’s shaving cream ads.
Many men suffer from burns, irritations, and tingling sensations that inflame the skin.

This unpleasant experience might be eliminated by changing the shaving method.  It may be as simple as switching from electric to shaving brush and razor or visa versa.  

But whatever the method, it is important to question the creams, soaps, washes and oils used before, during or after shaving. We have selected three questionable ingredients common to shaving products that are known irritants and carcinogens.  There are many more.

1. CAPB  (Cocamidopropyl Betaine) is a common trigger for rosacea, eczema, psoriasis

2. Tetrasodium EDTA  …made from formaldehyde and sodium cynanide 

3. PEG-14M  Polyethylene Glycol (PEG): Carcinogenic petroleum ingredient that many believe contribute to aging and reduction in skin moisture.

We have been successfully selling our shampoo soap bars for over 14 years for shaving. Both men and woman love them.  


Our customers have given us some wonderful testimonials, some of which we share below.

“I love the shampoo soap bar.  Hair, body and best shave I have ever had.”

  “I leave the ESP soap standing up in a small amount of water and shave with the gel that forms.”

“A beautiful shave.  No chemical feeling.  The blade just glides over my skin and I get a close clean shave “

“”I just shaved with your new charcoal soap. Incredible.” 

“I used to use a shave gel and always had red pimples and irritations. My skin has never felt like this before.” 

“I get the nice warm feeling that I am not infecting my body with chemicals every morning. 
I tried the Guinness soap and love it as a shampoo too.”

“My scalp is no longer irritated and I have switched from my gel to your shampoo bar.

It is all I use, head to toe.”

Wishing you all a Happy Holiday season
