Osma Laboratories

The Sorcerer's Stone of shaving has been found. Natural alum, known for millennia as a highly beneficial healing mineral, is now available for use in your daily ablutions, no wizardry required. For over 50 years, French laboratory Osma has been guarding and defending the ancient wisdom of alum manufacturing, and to this day relies on hand-cutting and other traditional practices to keep their minerals pure. The magic of the alum stone is its ability to tighten tissues and reduce inflammation, which translates to a closer shave and less irritated skin for you. Whether you choose the stone itself or one of Osma's proprietary potions, which combine the mystical mineral with moisturizing shea butter, you'll be spellbound by the power of a totally natural shaving experience steeped in the wisdom of the ancients.

Osma Laboratories Reviews
Great Alum Block
Bloc Osma Alum Block "I have tried a couple alum blocks. First was a cheaper one that broke into pieces rather easily. The Osma block has stayed in one piece. Even after dropping a couple times, only small pieces chipped off. What I love about a good alum block is the instant feedback on the irritation suffered during a shave. If it burns a lot, it wasn't such a smooth shave. Plus, the block helps with minor cuts. I rarely need anything more than an alum block to stop any bleeding. This is a great alum block!
Quality: Easy four star. Value: Tough call
Osma Tradition After Shave Balm "I received this product in my West Coast Surprise / Mystery box. This is a darn good balm and a fantastic freebie. I have been sampling some soaps that leave my skin irritated and this product offers the soothing aftershave effect that's needed. It REALLY soothes. But, take note, 1.7 ounce for $25.

Osma Styptic Pencil, Hemo Stop "It does what it is supposed to do. I needed a smaller stick for travel so this fit the bill.

The Osman Bloc is a
Bloc Osma Alum Block "The Osman Bloc is a good product, but I suspect that all alum blocs are pretty much the same thing. I just ordered the WCS brand alum bloc. It is bigger and comes with a plastic container to store the bloc. The Osma bloc case is made of paper, which is already falling apart. Oh by the way, the larger WCS alum bloc with case costs half as much as the Osma bloc.
MUCH better than the compressed blocks
Bloc Osma Alum Block "I started with another product "Gentlemen Jon's" that was made of compressed fragments. It was 20% bigger and did come with a plastic travel case. The problem was that it is a bit rough and the sides have small divots were my fingers were grasping it after only 2 weeks. Osma is glass smooth and although smaller, will probably last years. I always wash the alum off my face after 1-2 minutes and the overly tight feeling on my face has abated. still a bit of pleasant tightness remains and it's a great test of how well you shaved. I dry the wet side of the Osma block off against my flank after each use and store it open in the old plastic case from the cheaper block. I only close it when I travel. Water and metal are the two enemies of alum.
Great value
Bloc Osma Alum Block This stuff is great. I have always had a lot of trouble with nicks and cuts, but this stuff takes care of all of it.
