Since 1945, Saponificio Varesino has been crafting traditional soaps for laundry, industrial, and grooming purposes in Italy. And while they are proud of their almost 75-year history, they aren’t resting on their laurels but are continuing to perfect new crafting methods to bring the best soaps to the world.

Experience. Patience. Attention to detail. All of these are requirements of the soap-making process. Because saponification isn’t just a chemical process, it is enhanced by the skills and “eye” of the soap maker. This soap is crafted into a wonderful lathering grooming requisite. The rich, natural ingredients soften, moisturize, rejuvenate, soothe, and more. This is an updated version (Beta 4.1) of their already popular soap. This one includes butter of illipe and macadamia oil for additional hydration and protection.

This 70th Anniversary fragrance is a classic. Like the colognes of the past, it has notes of aquatic freshness and floral sweetness. Then it ends with a woody masculine base with hints of amber.

My very first time using Saponificio Varesino Shaving Soap

Probably the best shaving soap I have encountered, thanks to a close friend's recommendation. Smells great, shaves great with thick and slick cream/foam, and it finishes with a strong moisturising effect on the skin.

First class

I've been using soap and brush for a very long time and the SV soaps, especially the 70th Anniversary, are my favorites. It will quickly produce a thick, cushioning, slick lather no matter your water conditions, including extreme hard water like mine. Scents are uniquely their own; they do not try to imitate the hot scent du jour. Just an all around world class soap. The price is actually considerably better than it appears: it comes in a huge 5.3 ounce, milled puck that will last close to forever. Price is competitive when you consider cost per/shave. Enthusiastically recommended, both the soap and WCS.

This is special shave soap. As far as function, it is slick, cushioning, easy to lather, and the thick, creamy lather is long-lasting. I love the aroma of the 70th Anniversary soaps, and use the bath soap version also. This is a non-tallow soap, and yet performs as well as, or better than, my tallow soaps. It only takes a few swipes of the brush on the puck to make enough lather for three passes, much like Martin de Candre. Compared to MdC, it is more slick and with a more engaging aroma.Writing this, I realized that I haven't touched my favorite DRHarris pucks since receiving this. Love it! Pricey, but less than MdC.

One of the finest shaving soaps around

This shaving soap is on the expensive side but it is well worth the cost. This soap has no mineral oil or preservatives. It lathers great and the fragrance is the best in my opinion. Cologne type with floral and woody notes. I like this soap so much I bought several other SV shaving soaps. This hard puck should last a long time.
