The shave soap has a nice light feeling but with a dense lather that provides great protection, slickness, and post-shave. Like 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 just a half an almond size amount is usually all that is needed to bring you enough lather for a three pass shave or more. Often described as feeling light on the face, the lather is dense and tends to be a little thirsty so add water a little at a time until the desired lather is achieved. Our shave soaps work well using all types of shaving brushes. We normally recommend scoping out some shave soap from the jar and bowl lathering with our standard base as that base is more on the soft side, but the F Base or Firm base is fine to lather from the jar if that is your preference. Although we realize loading from the jar is very popular, we'd like to inform our customers that we believe by adding water to any ETHOS shave soap jar is counterproductive to our curing process where we try to eliminate as much of the water/moisture out of our soaps as possible. If you load directly from the jar, we recommend starting with a damp brush and turn the jar completely upside down. Then begin to swirl your brush very until loaded. Apply to a wet face, swirl the brush for about 30 seconds and then begin to paint the lather on painting WTG, XTG, and ATG until you get a nice non-translucent coating of rich, creamy dense lather for optimum shave results.
