A 95g shaving soap bar for use for shaving legs, armpits, faces and any other areas you fancy (we are people of the world after all). It is SLS, parabens, palm oil, cruelty and animal-product free and ethically made in the UK.
Shaving soap is just going back to what people used to do before we got into putting fancy coloured stuff in tubes, but as is so often true, the old ways are the best. Gareth has been using this to shave (yes he has a beard, but he goes round it) and Nicola on her legs and armpits for several months, we have also had friends test it for various purposes and everyone was happy. This product was one that we had to be sure of as the results can be so obvious when it goes wrong and both of us have had bad experiences with poor shaving products that don’t do the job, this does the job well.
For shaving your face: for best results use a traditional shaving brush and put the soap in a bowl, wet the brush, build up some lather on the brush and apply liberally. Due to the lack of chemical foamers etc. the lather is not as long lasting as some soaps, but don’t be fooled, the combination of this and a decent safety razor has given the closest, best shave Gareth has ever had (including hot towel cut throat barber shaves).
For shaving legs and armpits etc… just rub it between your hands, lather up and go!

Shaving soap always used to come in bar form, but in recent years we have been seduced by plastic topped aerosol cans and multi-layered plastic tubes of varying levels of difficult to near impossible to recycle. Men and women today go through millions of bottles, tubes etc. of shaving products and by going back a few decades to traditional shaving soap, we can cut down a lot of plastic.
The big difference with the Friendly shaving soap is what is in it, how it is made and how it is tested, so there are no animal products, no rainforest destroying palm oil, no SLS or parabens, no plastic and it hasn’t been tested on animals.
Yet again, this plastic-free option also makes a great hand-luggage travel companion for business, short-breaks, camping, beach holidays, skiing or hiking, this just works and doesn’t leak all over your bag, rucksack, laptop bag or suitcase.
