- Traditional lathering shaving soap
- With saffron extracts
- Scented with a green, fresh aroma (carrot & lettuce)
Abbate Y La Mantia is an Italian-based, family run business located in the beautiful Maremma countryside near the knee of Italy's boot. This Tuscany region and these artisans are producing exceptional saffron. They are not simple adding saffron to scent their product, rather their actual recipe is based in saffron – saponified saffron, if you will. Check out their grooming requisites.
Saffron has been used for centuries in dyes and cooking, figures prominently in Greek mythology and ancient writings, and as recently as the 19th century was considered a stimulant for libido and a cure for infertility. But all whimsy aside, it IS known for its carotenoids (fights free radicals to slow cellular ageing) and vitamins B1 & B2 (beneficial for the metabolic and immune systems). So it is included in all the products of Abbate Y La Mantia.
This shaving soap uses an original recipe containing the extract of active ingredients from the pistils of saffron. Additionally, butters and oils combine to create a phenomenal lather. To the base formula for this soap has been added carrot and lettuce. Crazy, right?
This Vegano aroma is for those who love herbaceous fragrances. This fresh, green scent may seem preposterous, but it is revolutionary as well. It was inspired by a dream that soap maker Fulco Abbate had and introduced to the public. Notes of carrot and lettuce may raise eyebrows, but it is worth a look.
