Oaken Lab Shaving Soap, Earth of Mankind

3 reviews
Sold out
  • Lathering shave soap
  • Tallow-based
  • Scented with an exotic spicy, tobacco aroma
  • Imported from Jakarta, Indonesia

Oaken Labs was formed on the premise that your daily grooming ritual can be improved. Their products focus on premium ingredients, proprietary scents, and phenomenal quality. Each shave should be an experience in elevating the routine to the sublime.

This new take on old formulas results in a slick lather with notable richness. The natural conditioners will leave your post-shave skin smooth and nourished. This tallow-based soap whips up an excellent lather while coconut oil, grapeseed oil, cocoa butter, castor seed oil, and lanolin seal the deal.

This aroma is inspired by exotic sites and smells of Colonial Java. A haze of clove and tobacco are mellowed out by a rich vanilla sweetness while notes of agarwood, sandalwood and mystical spices finish the image of a trade route winding through the sands and woods.    

Size: 4oz

Ingredients: Stearic Acid, Aqua, Tallow (Beef), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Glycerol, Potassium Hydroxide, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Fragrance, Vitis Vinifera (Grapeseed) Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa Butter), Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Lanolin

Good Lather/Poor Scent

When I read the scent profile for this, I thought it was a must-have. First time I opened up the jar, it smelled great. Over time, the scent seems to have mellowed out and suffers from the issue of "too much going on". I used to be able to get all of the scent notes, but now they're all jumbled together and it just smells like peanuts. Had to dock one star because of that, but the soap laters and performs extremely well, which is hugely redeeming after the disappointment of the scent. Not sure it's worth the price though.

New contender out of Jakarta

I had never heard of Oaken Lab before, but the scent profile grabbed me enough to give it a try. At $25, it's not cheap, but the free shipping promo got me past that. Turns out this formula is amazing! It generates a dense, slick, cushiony lather with great protection, and a 35-40 second load is plenty for a 3-pass shave. I knew it would be good because of who recommended I try it, but I wasn't prepared to love it. To top it off, it has excellent post-shave properties: skin feels soft and hydrated for several hours, just like some of the top domestic artisans. The price/tub is on par with PAA's excellent CK6 formula, and performance is similar. I plan to try the other two scents, and hope they'll offer more variety in the future. This scent is already among my favorites in my den.

Just fantastic

This shave soap is excellent. I used a Parker best badger brush to bowl lather. After a little warm water bloom, the brush loaded up super easily. With incremental additions of water I had a rich, dense lather in very little time, and I have somewhat hard water. I love the scent; I smell wood, pipe tobacco, a little vanilla, and coffee. I can't say enough good things about the scent, it's really a pleasure. The lather had excellent slickness, and my Oneblade was able to glide across my face. The closeness of my shave was ridiculous. This soap isn't cheap, but it's a treat to use. I will definitely keep coming back.
