Gilt Shaving Soap
Glittering golden amber & holy resins set ablaze by hundreds of dripping beeswax candles
Out of the darkness of midwinter blazes the glory of gilded altars & candle light! I'm not a spiritual person in the traditional sense, but find it hard to deny the thrill of thunderous pipe organs, smoking censers & midnight Masses. Gilt is a rapturous blend of golden, glittering notes: smoky amber, buttery copal resin, sticky yellow beeswax, rich musky honey & silky powder.
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), Soy bean 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.
