  • Real. Manly. Shave Soap. Simple formula. Real & natural ingredients. Manly smells. That's what I set out to create, and that's what you'll receive.
  • It's Slick! The goal was to create a freakishly slick shaving soap that is so easy to lather, a five year old could do it.
  • Lathers Up FAST! I can load my 26mm Extra Dense Stubby brush in under 20 seconds. Now, my workers have told me I move like a ninja sometimes, but this soap was built to lather quickly & easily. And it does! You too can easily create a rich, luxurious, & slick lather in under a minute!
  • Long Lasting. The #1 complaint I receive about these soaps is: "it takes forever to titanic my tin. I want to try your other scents." My concentrated formula will last you a whopping 4 to 6 months of daily shaving! The secret is the long curing process. We cure the soap until it's done. We want to sell you soap; not water.
  • Made by Hand & In America at our food grade workshop located in Chandler, AZ using the following natural ingredients: Stearic Acid, Water, Coconut Oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Glycerin, Shea Butter, & Fragrance.
  • Satisfaction Guaranteed. If you aren’t 100% happy, we don’t want your money. Don’t like it? We’ll send you something you do like; and if we can’t, we’ll refund your entire purchase price. But please order a sample first. We do not refund shipping costs.

Barbershop

Our inspiration was an Italian barbershop. We’ve blended all the signature scents of a barbershop into this intriguing fragrance. Pairs perfectly with the matching shaving soap & aftershave. We started with a base of powdery musk, added some bergamot, orange zest, oakmoss, patchouli, and finished it with a hint of geranium.

Black Amber Vanille

This scent reminds me of reading a classic leather bound book in a finely furnished study while sipping a fine glass of scotch. Classic, yet modern. We started with some rich, decadent French Vanilla. Then combined it with a rustic amber and rounded out with black Myrrh and a splash of Egyptian Musk.

Blackbeard

Bringing you back to the Golden Age of Piracy and the Pirate's code Blackbeard epitomized. Now, while we certainly don't condone piracy, smelling like a pirate has never smelled this good! To create Blackbeard, we started with tobacco, then added some cherry, vanilla, patchouli, cloves, and other spices.

Cedar Citron

Orange & cedar is masterfully blended in this essential oil only fragrance blend. Top notes of orange & bergamot meld seamlessly with cedar, woods, & a hint of sandalwood. It is fresh, woody, & invigorating. Guaranteed to lift your spirits & invigorate your mind & body.

Gaelic Tweed (Green Irish Tweed)

A true classic. Gaelic Tweed has an invigorating freshness and pure masculinity. This is our interpretation of Creed's Green Irish Tweed. The fragrance is a masterful blend of lemon verbena top notes, an iris & violet leaf heart with a sandalwood & ambergris base.

Lavenderwood

A masterful blend of lavender and cedar. I started with essential oils of lavender and red cedar wood. Then, I added some rosemary and cedar leaf. For the dry down, I finished it off with patchouli essential oil & musk.

Mahogany

It's a little sweet, a little spicy, and a lot of sexy. Sensual, woody, and spicy is how one customer's wife described it. "It reminds me of walking through a forest." is how another customer put it. "A perfect blend of sweet, spicy, & woody". I started with a base note of mahogany and then accented it with bergamot, vanilla, cedar and allspice notes. Then I threw in some cedar, vanilla, & patchouli to round it out.

Olympus

Named after the home of the Greek gods and inspired by Creed’s Aventus, this is the scent fit for a king or emperor. It is creamy & smoky and crisp & fruity; provocative and masculine. The initial blast of fresh fruit will hit you sharply. The apple will give way to freshly cut pineapple. Then the smokiness will come out wrapping you in a woody, creamy cloak reminiscent of sandalwood.

A magnificent example of a fruity chypre fragrance, it opens with a burst of fresh pineapple, apple, & bergamot with a hint of blackcurrant; drying down to a woody & warm heart of birch, juniper berries, patchouli and a touch of jasmine; all built on a warm base of vanilla, oak moss, musk, sandalwood & ambergris.

Sandalwood

A much truer sandalwood fragrance. Instead of offering you a floral sandalwood, we kept true to the woody and sensual smell of sandalwood. While we couldn’t use 100% sandalwood essential oil, we did use a hint of it and backed it up with patchouli, cedar, & amyris.

Tobacco

It does NOT smell like cigarettes. This is a “green” tobacco scent. It’s a fresh & clean smell. It’s modern & upbeat. It works perfectly as an everyday scent to wear work, the bar, the golf club, etc.

Cured tobacco leaf & flower are the stars of this blend. We started with notes of cured tobacco for the base, and added top notes of bay leaf, and fir to create an intoxicating blend of tobacco and bay leaf. It just smells great; which is why it’s my second most popular scent behind barbershop.

 

When I decided it was time to add a shaving soap to my product line, it needed to lather easily in hard water, be super slick, and protective. I started by looking at the existing options, but only one truly stood out. Considered the holy grail of shaving soap, imitated, but never replicated, Martin de Candre’s iconic vegan shaving soap stood out as the king of shaving soap. Some people even considered it the Holy Grail of shaving (it costs $70 per jar). So, I set out to crack the code…

Long story short, after thousands of hours of R&D and hundreds of failed prototypes, an early version of Rustic Soap was born. It lathered like a champ. Generating enough bubbles for 6 passes easily. And it was slick, super slick. I had cracked the code. But that wasn’t good enough. After spending so many hours and dollars, I wanted to make the best soap possible. So, I set out to make a better vegan shave soap.

The main complaints about MdC are: it’s drying and there are no scent options.  So, I made it better by incorporating shea butter and a ton of awesome scents. The result was a soap that lathers as soon as you look at it, that smells great and provides enough cushion & moisture to impress even the most discerning gentleman.

I crafted my Rustic & Formula T lines with one overarching goal in mind: ease of use. I made them so they’d lather up just as easily in hard water as they do in distilled water. No bowl necessary.

While you can lather it up any way you prefer, as there is no one right way, I prefer lathering them up right in the tin. After wetting the brush (I prefer a minute soak), I just go at it (swirling the brush on the soap until a thick lather is built), and then apply it to my face.

Since these are smaller 1 oz sizes, the diameter of the tin is much smaller. While you can certainly use the smaller soaps as is, the smaller diameter does mean it takes a bit longer to load. If you have trouble lathering it in the tin, scooping it out and transferring it into a larger container will increase the surface area and make it easier to lather.
