Martin de Candre Vétyver (Vetiver) Shaving Soap 50g Limited Edition
LIMITED EDITION Martin de Candre Vetyver (Vetiver) Shaving Soap
Martin de Candre, artisan soap maker based in Fontevraud l’Abbaye, rural France, the maker of some of the worlds finest shaving soaps.
Vétyver or Vetiver Shaving Soap benefits from a deep, masculine scent that has a light smokey base with lots of fragrant, grassy, greenery including lemongrass and citronella. It’s a pleasing, youthful scent that will appeal to men of all ages. Martin de Candre captured the Vetiver scent from a selection of natural, essential oils.
As soon as you swirl your shaving brush on the surface of this premium shaving soap you realise that this is a high-quality product, the scent hits you first then you’ll see how easy the soap lathers up and when applied to the skin you’ll fall in love with the rich, creamy and moisturising lather. It’s an expensive shaving soap but it will last around 12 months daily use. The longevity of the soap is down to many weeks the air drying process Martin de Candre applies to each puck of soap. Air drying for weeks on end hardens the soap and removes any moisture in the mix. What you get is a dense, hard-packed shaving soap.
This is a Limited Edition Shaving Soap, Martin de Candre will stop making this soap during 2019.
The soap is made by a small team in Fontevraud l'Abbaye, rural France.
Comes in a recyclable PETG plastic jar with screw top lid.
The main advantages of the MdC shaving soap by Martin de Candre :
We have elaborated a unique hot process soap-making method which we have been using in our workshop for 40 years with perfect control over the quality process, using 100% natural essential oils (olive, coconut) and potash (Alkali).
A soap made with this process ensures excellent heat retention without adding any preservatives.
At the end of cooking, we add the finest essential oils to the warm paste which allows us to have scented soaps right to their core.
It takes weeks for the soap to dry and to rid all excess water and refine itself. In our day and age where everything goes fast, it may seem crazy... but this is the only sure way to greatly enhance shaving soap lather and fragrance properties!
A luxury top quality product, manufactured by a French craftsman, ... and yet one of the cheapest as it lasts a good year going by your feedback and comments.
Finally, let's describe its lather qualities:
The lather thickens rapidly, with a few brush swirls and gives a satisfying close and clean shave that helps skin feel great and moisturised without razor burn. The lather is nice and rich, soft and creamy, extremely pleasant to the skin ... YOU know to talk about it in the best possible way!
