FAQs

What's the difference between shaving soaps and shaving creams?

Shaving soaps and creams are both integral to the traditional wet shaving experience, but they offer distinct characteristics. 

Shaving soaps come in a hard, puck-like form and require more effort to build a lather, typically necessitating a shaving brush and a bit of skill. 

This process can be more time-consuming, but it's often appreciated by traditional shaving enthusiasts for the ritualistic aspect. 

Shaving soaps are known for their longevity and cost-effectiveness over time. They also tend to provide a firmer lather that is highly effective in preparing the beard for a close shave.

On the other hand, shaving creams are softer and more immediately pliable. They usually come in tubes or tubs and can be lathered up much more quickly and easily, either with a brush or even just your hands. 

This makes them particularly user-friendly, especially for those new to wet shaving or in need of a quicker shave. Shaving creams are generally more moisturizing than soaps, making them a better choice for those with sensitive or dry skin.

What's best for me - shaving soap or shaving cream?

Deciding whether shaving soap or cream is better for you depends on several factors. If you're someone who enjoys the ritual of shaving and doesn't mind spending a bit more time creating a lather, shaving soap might be your preference. 

It's also more economical in the long run and can offer a sense of satisfaction in mastering the traditional shaving technique.

However, if you're looking for convenience, ease of use, or have sensitive skin that benefits from extra moisture, shaving cream is likely the better choice. It's easier to work into a lather and generally more forgiving, especially for beginners.

How do you use shaving soaps?

Shaving soaps have been a staple in traditional wet shaving for generations. They offer a classic experience that many shaving enthusiasts swear by. Here's how to use shaving soaps effectively:

  1. Soak the Brush: Place your shaving brush in warm water to soften the bristles.
  2. Load the Brush: Swirl the wet brush over the shaving soap for about 30 seconds to load it with soap.
  3. Build the Lather: In a shaving bowl or directly on your face, use the brush in circular motions to create a lather. Add water as needed to achieve the desired consistency.
  4. Apply the Lather: Use the brush to apply the lather to your face, preparing your skin and beard for shaving.

How do you use shaving creams?

Shaving creams are a popular choice for their convenience and ease of use, making them ideal for those who prefer a quick yet effective shave. Here’s a simple guide to using shaving creams:

  1. Prepare Your Face: Start with a wet face, preferably after a warm shower to soften the beard.
  2. Apply the Cream: Put a small amount of shaving cream on your shaving brush or directly onto your skin.
  3. Lather Up: If using a brush, build a lather in a shaving bowl or on your face with circular motions, adding water as needed. For brushless creams, use your hands to lather on your face.
  4. Ready to Shave: Once you have a rich lather, you're prepared to begin shaving.

What are the types of shaving soaps?

There are several distinct types of shaving soaps available, each designed to enhance your shaving experience, especially when paired with shaving brushes for the best application. 

Here are some of the notable types:

  • Triple-Milled Soaps: Crafted through a process that involves milling the soap three times to eliminate excess moisture and impurities, these soaps are exceptionally hard. Their longevity is a key feature, along with their ability to produce a consistently rich and creamy lather.
  • Hot Pour Soaps: Created by pouring the soap mixture into molds while it's still hot and allowing it to cool and set, hot pour soaps tend to be softer. They are favored for their quick-lathering luxury but may not have the extended lifespan of their triple-milled counterparts.
  • Italian-Style Soaps: Known for their softer consistency compared to triple-milled soaps, Italian-style soaps excel in generating a rich, creamy lather. They frequently incorporate natural ingredients such as olive oil or almond oil, offering a nourishing shave.
  • Tallow-Based Soaps: These soaps feature tallow (animal fat) as a primary component. Celebrated for their dense, cushiony lather, tallow-based soaps ensure a smooth glide and effective skin protection throughout the shave.

Glycerin-Based Soaps: Glycerin soaps stand out for their moisturizing properties. Gentle on the skin and particularly suitable for those with sensitive skin types, they produce a slick lather that facilitates a smooth shaving experience.
