Fuzzy Scrumpit Shaving Soap
Bushels of overripe peaches & apricots, a squirt of guava juice & rooibos tea, & vintage flannel shirts drying in the sun
Billions of peaches, peaches for me... All the heat & malaise of a mid Atlantic summer is forgiven when the first peaches of the season appear at market. Red Havens, White Ladies, Sunhighs, there isn't a variety we'll turn down, as long as they're locally grown, perfectly ripe, & so juicy we have to stand over the sink to eat them... Fuzzy Scrumpit is the smell of a York County farmstead in high summer, overflowing with lush stone fruits, funky sun tea, & work-worn shirts flapping in the breeze, syrupy sweet & fruity & just too good.
This listing is for a generous 4-ounce round of my luxurious glycerin soap, fortified with ultrafine bentonite clay for a smooth, comfortable shave. I use a hefty, round mold that sits handsomely in a shaving bowl, or you can lather up with your hands. The end result? Huge, stable lather, great slip & delicious scents to get you soft, smooth & ready for action. I hand cast in small batches with no SLS, propylene glycol, parabens, animal products or other funny stuff! Most of my fragrances are phthalate-free, too. My bars produce gorgeous, abundant lather & have unique scents that cling gently to your skin. You'll be left feeling clean & smelling fantastic. I hand-wrap each bar in cellophane, with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind:
Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Safflower Oil, Glycerin (kosher, of vegetable origin), Purified Water, Sodium Hydroxide (saponifying agent), Sorbitol (moisturizer), Sorbitan oleate (emulsifer), Oat Protein (conditioner), Fragrance Oil, Bentonite, Titanium Dioxide, Mica
Since I work in small batches, you may notice slight variations in color from bar to bar. New to a good old fashioned wet shave? The guys at The Art of Manliness won't steer you wrong: http://artofmanliness.com/2008/01/04/how-to-shave-like-your-grandpa/
