Product Description

The Mari Lwyd Shaving Soap

Frozen seaweed, hand spun woolens soaked in salt water, the rattle of chalk white bones, & a foolish sprig of thyme

There's a clattering at the door one dark December eve, & you'd best be ready with your wits about you! The Mari Lwyd, ghostly white & adorned in ribbons, stands at the threshold, challenging you to a battle of rhymes! Best the grey mare in verse, or you must allow her in, to be plied with food & drink as she rolls her ghostly eyes at you & cavorts about the room, snapping her bony jaws & giving chase to the children! When she's had her fill of your offerings, the Mari Lwyd & her merry company depart to seek fresh opponents, stamping down the frozen lane towards the bay & the harbormaster's cottage, garlands & wool scarves streaming behind them in the wet 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), Bentonite, Titanium Dioxide, Mica

Since I work in small batches, you may notice slight variations in color from bar to bar.
