Oleo Soapworks Shaving Soap, No. 11|
- Lathering Shaving Soap
- With Duck Fat base
- Barbershop scent inspired by Replica from Maison Margiela
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. Vida Perez-Velazquez is the founder (and hands) of the handmade, small batch grooming requisites coming out of Oleo. Like many in the wet shaving world, Vida was inspired to try her hand at soap-making because of persistent skin issues that were only exacerbated by commercial soaps and moisturizers. In addition to a fabulous performance, her products have a plethora of scents!
But the performance is top-notch. The Canard base shaving soap is a duck fat grooming requisite. And boy, does it deliver. Loaded with skin nourishing kokum butter, palm oil, castor oil, jojoba oil (hence the name Oleo - oil), this soap is slick and protective. The duck fat too gives it a dense, rich lather. It is a thirsty soap, so don't be afraid of a little water. This hot process soap is poured into a low profile, wide mouth container for easy brush loading.
This No. 11 scent is inspired by a line of fragrances dubbed "Replica" which seek to recreate moments, locations, & occasions that draw out memories. So this scent is subtitled "At the Barber" as it weaves its nostalgic web around you. Notes of basil, black pepper, lavender, rosemary, tonka bean, and white musk evoke the stripped pole and leather chairs of a Main Street barber.
