  • New Release: Eufros Shaving Soap & Aftershave-West Coast Shaving

    New Release: Eufros Shaving Soap & Aftershave

    This handmade, small batch, lathering monster is the creation of Manuel Garcia, aka JabonMan. With no storefront and no website, this Spanish artisan has remained on the fringes of mainstream wet shaving, but always with a subtle presence in chatrooms, reviews, and SOTD (shave of the day) posts.  Perhaps his obscurity added to his mystic! West Coast Shaving is pleased to be bringing his products to the US market as the first and only US retailer.

The skin is quite a vital defensive organ, so it will throw an immune response to anything which poses an allergic threat, including a fragrance component. The problem lies in the individual, as there are no general trends in who reacts or how, so scent searching is a game of “trial by error”.
