Sandalwood Shave Bar (large)
Sometimes a shave soap confuses people who are used to aerosol cans full of lab-created, slick-glide blue gels, but trust us when we say mother nature knows best, and shaving has never felt so good!
The sandalwood shave bar contains: saponified grass-fed beef tallow, saponified oils of coconut, castor, sunflower, and extra virgin olive oil, saponified cocoa butter, French clay, and organic sandalwood essential oil. We have formulated this bar to create a rich creamy shave lather, a super smooth glide for your razor, and amazing softness.
We have created 2 different sizes of the shave bar. Many women find that the smaller bar is a great hand held option for shaving in the shower or tub. The larger size is designed to make lathering with a shaving brush super easy for the fellas. While we do not currently stock shave brushes, we do recommend the vie-long horse hair brush. We have found that the natural horse hair bristles work very well with our soaps, and unlike badger or boar brushes, the animals don’t have to die for you to get your shave on.
Grass-fed beef tallow from Yonder Way Farm
The fatty acid profile of grass-fed, pasture-raised tallow (beef fat) is incredibly close to that of the human skin cell, which makes it wonderfully absorbable and nourishing to the body. There is a vast difference in the quality and social footprint of ethically raised and processed animals who live their lives as nature intended and (as our farmer says) have “only one bad day their whole lives” and animals crammed into pens and cages, fed unnatural toxic feed that makes them sick and fat, and terminated without honor or respect.
We use grass-fed tallow in many of our soaps and other body products because of the wonderfully nourishing fatty acid profile. Because we believe in ethically sourcing our ingredients, all of our tallow comes from our amazing friends at Yonder Way Farm. Jason and Lynsey Kramer built their farm on the principal that they should be good stewards of the land, and raise their animals free from confinement in a natural environment, without the use of antibiotics, growth hormones, synthetics or chemicals of any kind. Their cows graze on vast acres of grass, their pigs root up pasture, and their chickens forage and roam totally free. We know this because we’ve spent time with our wonderful farmers, walked their farm, met their crazy happy animals, and eaten meals with their amazing family. We are honored and blessed to have them feed our family, and happy to share their practices and nourishing products with you.
Each large bar weighs approximately 5-6 oz. Since every bar is made in small batches and hand-cut, the sizes and weight will vary slightly.
Due to the handmade nature of this soap, each bar will differ slightly from the pictures above.
Each bar has been cold processed in small batches and is cured for at least 4 weeks. This ensures a pH neutral product, and helps to create a harder, longer-lasting bar that won’t just melt away in the shower after a few uses. While we believe this creates the best possible quality product, it does create a slower inventory process. If we do not have enough bars to ship at the time you place your order, you will be alerted immediately and will have the option to maintain your order, in which case the bars will be shipped to you as soon as they become available (we will provide an approximate date for shipping availability), or you can cancel your order and reorder at a later date.
We make no claims on our soap, other than that we LOVE them and use them ourselves every day. We hope you do too. Please read the ingredients list carefully and do not use if you have sensitivities to any of the ingredients. As with any product, please discontinue use if irritation occurs.
To preserve the life of our soaps, we recommend keeping them as dry as possible between uses.
Available for shipping in the U.S. only at this time.
Due to the personal nature of soaps and bath/body care products, all sales are final – no refunds, exchanges or returns. However, if you think we flubbed your order in some way or if you’re unhappy with the products, PLEASE PLEASE contact us ASAP.
