Lavender Supreme Shave Soap F Base contains nothing but 100% pure Organic Lavender Essential Oil sourced from a grower in Provence, France. It's a wonderful Lavender that is very smooth and not overly camphorous. Lavender has been used in aromatherapy for its calming and healing properties for centuries and makes for a wonderful shave experience, especially if you are a nighttime shaver. This F Base Shave Soap lathers up quickly into a rich creamy lather which provides an excellent protective cushion, slickness, and a timed release post shave that never feels oily or waxy. As with most ETHOS Grooming Essential products, the soap contains our proprietary EOS Complex, which means Earth • Ocean • Science. This unique blend of 36 luxurious, exotic, and beneficial skincare ingredients and other soap ingredients will enhance the skin's overall condition and feel with continuous use.
ETHOS Firm Base Shave Soaps are easy to lather and I recommend about half an almond size amount for a three pass shave if using a shaving bowl. You can easily load three passes worth of lather out of the jar in 20 to 30 seconds. The soap takes a good amount of water but is not extremely thirsty. I recommend not rinsing the face completely between passes but just a quick splash of water, work it around and then lather up for your next pass. This method increases the slickness to a whole other level. I also suggest a lot of painting the lather on after the initial swirling of the brush to distribute the lather. This soap can be used with any shaving brush, natural hair or synthetic. Everyone has their own method so have fun experimenting with this new base and what works best for you!
