Mandinka Shaving Soap - new larger size!
I'm dancing the Seven Veils... A heady & exotic blend of spiced honey, carnation, sandalwood & rich saffron
Deep burgundy shot with veins of gold, Mandinka is a deep, sexy blend reminiscent of sticky incense & shifting sands. Spicy & almost edible, it lingers on the skin as a rich honeyed floral, cut through with dry sandalwood and saffron. It's heady, languid & decidedly feminine...
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/

I don't smell much while I'm using it, but it does a great job. I lather it up with a random paintbrush I have, and it gives me a really smooth shave and rinses cleanly. What more could I want?

I was thrilled when I recieved my first package of Paintbox Soapworks soaps. I love the White Rose of York Sorbetto, the Bookkeepers Hand Butter, and the Mandinka Shave Soap! Luscious leather, exquisite scents. I will definitely be ordering soaps for my family and friends in the future. Great quality gifts or to pamper yourself!

This soap lathers up so nicely and doesn't turn into a runny or slimy mess.
