The test of a good shave soap is if the brush can hold the foam for at least 15 minutes without it falling flat. Our shave soap produces a foam that can be held for well over 40 minutes (probably longer, but I haven’t tested it beyond 40 minutes to find out just how long), and is made with Fair Trade organic shea butter for its super moisturizing benefits.
