The Yuletide Mariner Shaving Soap
The roar of northern seas, lashed by frigid rain, & the memory of spruce boughs hung on far distant shores
Not every Christmas is white... This scent is dedicated to those married to the ocean, the sailors, the trawlers, the men & women who are beholden to the sea & all it caprices. It is a deep & watery green-blue scent, laced with spruce & evergreen to recall home & the holiday that waits for the tides to turn to shore.
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), Bentonite, Titanium Dioxide, FD&C Colorant
Since I work in small batches, you may notice slight variations in color from bar to bar.
