Oaken Lab v3 Shaving Soap, Sanctum

5 reviews |
  • Tallow-based, lathering shave soap imported from Jakarta, Indonesia
  • Scented with Sandalwood, rose, dry floral, bergamot, & a creamy wood base
  • Also available in matching aftershave splash

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.

The new V3 shaving soap formula brings a major step up from the original with the goal of upgrading every aspect of the shaving soap. The lather is dense and luxurious with improved slickness and top-tier post shave feel. Added to the Shea Butter and Lanolin are major skin foods including Yogurt, Allantoin, Vitamin E and Tamanu Oil, a tropical cold-pressed tree nut oil with immense skin conditioning benefits.

Sanctum is a representation of the spaces that bring solace, evoke a sense of calming stillness, or spark contemplation and introspection. They are spaces that go beyond physical capacity but manage to become a sanctuary for personal healing or a place for one to be lost in thought. These moments of solitude can invigorate creativity, reveal clarity, or simply allow one to just be.

Sanctum is a sandalwood and rose forward scent that opens with dry floral and crisp bergamot, and dries down to its deep, creamy wood base.

Translucent Jasmine, Dry Bergamot, Dusty Rose, Paper, Sandalwood, Benzoine, Virginia Cedarwood and Patchouli

Amazing soap quality with one of the best lather I have tested!

Amazing soap, now in my top 3 in terms of lather quality ! It's as good as Saponificio Varesino. The scent is really nice, quite unusual (very luxurious, silky).

Cream of the crop

This shaving soap does what a shaving soap should do. It produces a rich creamy lather that stays moist. The result is a close shave without any nicks or cuts.

I am fairly new to West Shaving, but was very much looking forward to trying BOTH the soap and the after shave. WONDERFUL scents on both! It will be hard to NOT use these every day. Thank you to the folks at Oaken Lab.

On the fence? Don't be!

With the creation of the V3 soap base Oaken Lab propelled themselves into the elite level soap bases. This is a really good base! I've reviewed Far Afield and Earth Of Mankind on this website so check them out for a little more info. This is almost, if not, a cologne scent. Maybe just a bit not... but almost! It smells great and will be widely received by the wet shaving community. It's what I would call a safe scent but it's not boring, it's just really nice, it's pleasing to smell and smell again - it's a nice medium complexity, almost cologne, scent and will likely be their most popular. I'd give it a scent strength of a 5 out of 10. It's really nice and you should probably buy it, I would, well, I did. Click buy and enjoy!
