Disconnect your data, dig out the paper maps, & run away to the woods... Putney Road will lead you there. The scent of a New England road trip in late September, Putney Road is an uncomplicated but completely immersive blend of falling leaves, gently fermented apples, pine needles, clove, vetiver, cedarwood, & fresh air. I went to college in southern Vermont, & there is nothing like an unscheduled, unstructured day of following winding roads through blazing foliage & postcard villages, stopping at roadside stands & town markets, with no idea where you'll end up before you run out of gas, or daylight, or both. Throw your boots in the trunk, point the steering wheel north, & lose yourself in the curve of the road & autumn's embrace for a while...
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/
