This F Base Shave Soap is a tribute to a very good friend who passed away before his time. Known on many shaving forums as ShaveMD, I met Mark through the wet shaving community, and throughout the years, we became not only good shaving buddies but also real friends. His sudden loss was a shocking blow. Many wet shavers trusted Mark’s advice on razors, Shave soaps and Shave Brushes, and his many reviews were always honest and to the point.

Mark will be greatly missed, and this scent is my way of honoring my friend. Most of the proceeds will go to his favorite charity, the Ronald McDonald House for Children. The scent is a custom one I made for Mark. He called it “Ginger Ale” because it contains Italian Lemon Essential Oil, Italian Lime distilled Essential Oil, and Ginger Essential Oil, along with a little bit of cooling agent for a very slight chill. This was going to be Mark’s summer scent, but, unfortunately, he never got to use it. I think it is appropriate to let others enjoy what I know he would have. RIP, my friend!


ETHOS shave soaps are easy to lather and half an almond size of soap for a three pass shave is recommended if using a shaving bowl. The soap takes a good amount of water but is not extremely thirsty. You can easily load three passes worth of lather out of the jar in 20 to 30 seconds. Then just a quick splash of water, work it around, and lather up for your next pass. Paint the lather on after the initial swirling of the brush to distribute the lather. This method brings the slickness to a whole other level.

The soap can be used with any natural hair or synthetic shaving brush. Everyone has their own method, have fun experimenting with this base to learn what works best for you!
