What Is the Difference Between Italian Shaving Soaps and Classic Shaving Soaps?

Italian shaving soaps and classic shaving soaps differ in key aspects. Italian shaving products prioritize natural ingredients like shea butter and essential oils, resulting in rich, moisturizing lathers that protect the skin. 

They're celebrated for diverse, captivating scents, often unique and evocative of Italy. The lather produced offers exceptional cushion and glide, reducing the risk of nicks and cuts. 

Many Italian shaving products are crafted using artisanal methods, presenting not only effective but beautifully designed products. In contrast, classic shaving soaps vary in ingredients and performance. 

The choice between them hinges on personal preferences for scent, lathering, and the overall shaving experience.

How do you use Italian shaving soap?

Using Italian shaving soap is an enjoyable and straightforward process:

  5. Shave with your preferred razor, following the direction of hair growth.

Rinse your face with cool water and apply an after shave product to soothe and moisturize your skin.
