Stirling Soap Company began with a vision to bring something that could properly be labeled "soap" back to your grooming routine. No artificially loaded "washes", no chemically based "cleansing bars", just good natural soap. So if you love the back-to-basics nature of wet shaving, you will love this company and its myriad of fantastic soaps! Amanda and Roderick Lovan started their company in 2012 after a trip to Scotland left them longing for all thing pure and natural. But the price of artisan soaps just seemed too high, so they began making their own. . . making making them available to others. Stirling Soap Company didn't want to just bring exceptional, handcrafted, wonderfully scented soaps to the masses, but also to do it in a way that wouldn't cost an arm and a leg. They have succeeded admirably - fantastic lather, great scents, and true value.
