Our balms contain no perfumes, chemicals, dyes, or synthetic additives, and because they have no water, they also have no chemical emulsifiers and preservatives. Our balms are made totally of natural oils and butters and of the antioxidant vitamin E as a preservative.
A sample "slab" of our shaving soap and a sample jar of our aftershave. The shaving soap is roughly 3" in diameter and should be enough for many shaves, but because these are done by hand don't expect them to be always so neat as pictured. A sample jar is 1/4 ounce in size and "adorned" with a very simple label not very well centered. We attempt to keep samples in stock, but we will on occasion run out.
Of course, there is no shipping charge for samples.
The scent of our shaving soap foreshadows the scent of our aftershave, and its scent is chiefly determined by the essential oils [see Ingredients] whose properties aid in healing damage and abrasions to the skin. These same essential oils are in the shaving soap, but their effect, though salutary, should be brief—because all soaps are desiccating (drying), shaving soaps should be rinsed off thoroughly as soon as you have finished shaving. To be clear, we do not believe that your skin can profit from prolonged contact with any soap, even ours. It is just as we think you should rinse the shampoo from your hair and then apply a separate conditioner. Our aftershave conditions your skin with oils and butters and essential oils that specifically counter the side effects of shaving and add back moisture to the skin. Thus, our shaving soap is part of our shaving system. It is further explained in the insert included with each order of your shaving soap or aftershave.
You may order one of any sample set, but sales of our samples are strictly limited to just one of each sample set. Each sample is more than enough for several applications or tests. As always, shipping is free.
