Nightwalker Shaving Soap
A lupine, moon-chasing blend of ghostly white patchouli & oakmoss, a musky breath of nutmeg, & woodland herbs crushed under silent feet
Dogs bay their alarm in the darkened valley, but up here in the ancient black woods you are safe, slipping silently through shadows as you climb to the ridgeline. You smell the earth & the lichens & the fleeting musk of deer, curling your lip to taste the air & savor the hunt to come. But first, you chase the great white disc, the full, ripe moon rising slowly behind the hill, the pale queen that will tear you at last from this stupid human body, so slow & soft & powerless. Your breath comes in ragged pants as you clamber up the last tangle of roots & jagged stones & then you are there, at the crown of the forest, bathed in that terrible light, your skull splitting open to let the wolf leap free into the night.
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/
