Wormwood is a plant scientifically called Artemisia Absinthium. It is a rather common shrub in the alpine areas, characterized by a silvery green color and an extremely bitter taste. Absinthium Artemisia enriched with jojoba oil and extract of Eastern Siegesbeckia is used in oriental medicine to treat wounds and is used first time as an ingredient in a shaving cream. Although classed as a cream, it is more like a half soap, half cream, the traditional Italian croap soap making method.
Donato Ciniello has been working in the world of cosmetics for more than thirty years and created the Extro Shaving Creams with his passion for wet shaving about a decade ago. 100% vegetable based and free from parabens/harsh alcohols, the shaving creams are enriched with Q10, Royal Jelly, Calendula Oil and other natural ingredients all designed to nourish, protect and take care of your skin. Extro soaps are soft, creamy and very easy to whip up a rich, creamy lather.
Each 150ml sized soft soap comes in a large, wide rimmed glass jar with screw top lid. This wide rim allows you to load your brush directly from the jar . One jar should last anywhere between four to five months of daily use.
The Extro Shaving Creams use a natural method and it is quite normal for creams made in such a way to have irregular cavity structures and for their surfaces to not be completely smooth. This does not affect the quality of the cream and should not be considered a flaw.
