- Artisan shaving soap

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 (4.3) of their already popular soap.
The soap is worked in an extruding machine and then hand cut. The logo on the soap was "hammered" on from a machine that pre-dates the printing machines in use today. It resides in an aluminum tin that boasts a metal label. Everything about this product is well-design and intended to create a fabulous experience for the user.
