  • Artisan shave soap from Stirling
  • Tallow, glycerin, and lanolin create a thick, slick lather
  • Scented with a classic fougere aroma

Stirling Soap Company began with a vision to bring something that could properly be labeled "soap" back to your grooming routine. No artificially loaded "washes", no chemically based "cleansing bars", just good natural soap. So, if you love the back-to-basics nature of wet shaving, you will love this company and its myriad of fantastic soaps! Try Stirling Soap Company Shave Soap, Varen.

They have created a healthy soap that produces a healthy lather! Their tallow-based soaps are loaded with glycerin and lanolin - a perfect storm of lathering goodness from the earliest days of soap making. Then a healthy dose of almond oil, coconut oil, and shea butter offer nourishing and moisturizing. They lather up easily with a brush and your favorite mug or bowl.

Dutch for "fern", Varen is an original scent from Stirling created for a Dutch wetshaving forum. Over 2 years in the making, this fragrance is a green aroma of a fougere. A blend of oakmoss, lavender, & coumarin give the traditional elements of this perfume classification. Then notes of vetiver, sage, cedar, lichen, and geranium finish off the natural, earthy aroma.  

Size: 5.8oz

Made in the USA

Ingredients: Beef Tallow, Stearic Acid, Distilled Water, Castor Oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Vegetable Glycerin, Fragrance Oil, Almond Oil, Shea Butter, Coconut Milk, Lanolin, Sodium Hydroxide, Essential Oil, Sodium Lactate.

Top Notch Performance in an Interesting Scent.

This soap whips up a dense slick lather with enough cushion for the most aggressive razors. The scent reminds me of old men in a good way. It is strong in the tub, and whipping it really opens up the scent making room for some pretty complex notes. Its hard to describe beyond green and complex. I will be keeping it in my regular rotation.

Pleasant scented shaving soap.

Well scented shaving soap. Initial look at the soap is not too appealing but after using this soap I highly recommend it! Great value for the money. Provide thick smooth lather for an effortless shave.

Conventional Office Scent

I held off trying Stirling soaps for a long time, suspicious of their low prices and vast array of scents, but they really are fine performers, offering easy lathering and very good slickness and protection. The other Stirling scents I've tried have been surprising and unique. Varen is exactly the opposite. It's an absolutely conventional, fresh, going-to-the-office scent. It's the way you'd expect the tailor at a men's suit store to smell. It says, "I made an effort with my grooming." (If you know Barrister and Mann's Beaudelaire -- also a fougere -- Varen is its opposite.) I don't work in an office and I prefer a little bit of dirt with my scents, so Varen didn't really do it for me, but it's no surprise that it's so popular. If The Eagles are your favourite band, Avatar your favourite movie and Aventus your cologne of choice, you will likely appreciate Varen as well.

Another Rod Lovan Winner!

Extremely aromatic, herbacious, and maybe a little spicy. Warm & slightly sweet. Best Fougere I've ever smelled... easily. Same great soap base you already know but, with mutton tallow. Seems even more creamy. A must buy.
