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.
West Coast Shaving is pleased to carry this amazing line of shaving soaps, balms, and splashes with a wide variety of scents – right from the heartland of the USA. In addition to a fabulous performance, her products have a plethora of scents! Check them out – from Caribbean Dream to Windy City (an homage to their base in the Chicagoland area).
Part of the fun of wet shaving is escaping the world of generic foams with little to no scent and delving into a world filled with a complex arrays of fragrant components. All these options in shaving creams/soaps can transform the dread of shaving into an enjoyable experience. Though exploring scents is a pretty exciting adventure, many will likely fall into one major trap: an allergic reaction. 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”.
We’ve got the skinny on the ingredients in your post-shave products so you can choose the right one for you and your skin.
As you dive into the world of wet shaving, you have probably noticed that there are more details than you ever imaged. While this is a return to a simple, age-old ritual of blade, soap, & brush, it is also so much more. You can get lost in the nuances in fragrance, preferences for hair grade, and even judgements on which piece of steel is “just right”. So it might not surprise you to learn that even the shape of the bottles is given intense scrutiny and planning.
