For the traditional wet shaving experience, The Art of Shaving offers their classic Shaving Soaps. Formulated with glycerin and coconut oil, they generate a rich lather when used with a shaving brush and hot water. The lather protects the skin and softens the beard while providing an extremely close shave.
Use hot water with Traditional Shaving Soap to soften hair, open pores and cleanse. For an unctuous lather, use with a badger Shaving Brush.
For best results and a very comfortable shave, place lather in center of brush and let it sit for five seconds in hot water to warm up the lather before shaving.
For a close shave, lather onto skin in an upwards motion so as to cause whiskers to lift away from face and neck. Always shave with the grain first, then lightly across or against the grain for a closer shave. Applying too much pressure when shaving against the grain can cause ingrown hairs, and red marks or patches to appear on face or neck.
Stay away from products that contain numbing agents such as Benzocaine or Menthol as these will tighten pores and stiffen beard.
