Fresco Shave soap in the F Base which stands for Firm Base is the first Shave Soap in the Italian Collection but certainly not the last. This aroma blend is a Lime Essential oil forward scent with a Fresh Basil and Lime infusion and a touch of Spearmint Essential oil. A simple clean refreshing scent that is timeless! No Synthetic Fragrance oils are used in this blend. The new F Base soap lathers easily and produces a rich dense lather with excellent protection, slickness and a unique post shave due to the higher percentage of the EOS Complex and added Hyaluronic acid.
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 thristy. I recommend not rinsing the face completely between passes with just a quick splash of water, work it around, and then lather up for your next pass. I find 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!
