Vétivert Shave Soap in our Firm base is a refreshing, sophisticated green cologne scent with Vetiver and Citrus Essential oils as the stars. This soap is our F Base. It lathers up quickly into a rich creamy lather that provides an excellent protective cushion, slickness, and a timed release post shave that never feels oily or waxy.
ETHOS Shave soaps are easy to lather, and I recommend about half an almond size of soap 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, 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 natural hair or synthetic shaving brush. Everyone has their own method, so have fun experimenting with this new base and see what works best for you!
