Artisan Shaving Soap
New labels are coming soon! Please expect to start seeing them soon.
I am very excited and pleased to finally present my new shaving soap formulation. I spent more than six months researching and testing to bring it to you. This is the replacement for my premium shaving soap. My quest was to bring not just a better shaving soap to my customers, but offer an elite shaving soap. I am confident that my Artisan Shaving Soap is that.
What's different? You will find the lather to be dense and very stable, not airy or full of large bubbles. The slickness and residual slickness are leaps and bounds better than the "old premium" version. Post shave, well how about no aftershave moisturizers if you don't want because my artisan shaving soap will give you excellent moisturization post-shave.
This shaving soap is more of a thirsty type of soap, but don't start with a super wet brush. Shake off the water after you soak your brush and then start building the lather in the jar. Once you've acquired enough soap in your brush go straight to your face or build the lather in your bowl adding water. Once you're able to dial the lather in you will achieve a super slick shave and a super slick post-shave to clean up any areas that were missed in the previous passes.
Once again a tallow based soap, but this time featuring locally sourced sheep milk from Cedar Creek Sheep Dairy. I also chose cocoa butter, mango butter, lanolin, and meadowfoam oil, bentonite clay and organic herbal extracts to complete this luxury shaving soap. All the butters and oils used are non-GMO and my palm stearic acid is sustainably sourced. I do understand that this shaving soap is much more expensive than the previous premium shave soap, but I have spared no expense with many of it's ingredients and my recipe is very complicated.
4.5 oz jar (recyclable) Large shallow wide mouth jar with new updated waterproof labels.

Hi, thought I'd add to the growing number of glowing reviews about Lisa's Natural Herbal Creations. I received Somali Rose shave soap recently, tried it out and it blew me away! It's so good, my skin felt protected on all passes - i could scrub areas against the grain with no problems whatsoever. I'm gonna play around with the water band on this as it's early days (just for kicks as there were 0 issues with the lather) so that I get a good sense of this soap. The post-shave is where it really shines bright. Man, you wouldn't need to put anything on your face for days after i reckon! I bought the post-shave elixir too for pure luxury 😉👍
Looking forward to trying other products 😊😊👍 thank you Lisa!
I found this new soap base to be top notch! No doubt I would buy again. The Pumpkin Oud scent seemed familiar. It was dark and earthy with a pumpkin sweetness to bring it to a very pleasant place. The Florida Freeze has a sturdy medium menthol in my opinion and the lemon lime type scent was great. Initial and residual slickness were top notch and the lather was dense and stable. I'm impressed. The post shave left my cheeks and neck feeling soft and healthy. Great job Lisa!
The scent of this soap is amazing. The lather is slick and allows for a very smooth shave. My skin felt terrific during and after the shave. A sample of the Somali Rose soap was included. I've decided Somali Rose will be my next purchase! ....the soap also arrived lightning fast .This is my first Soap from this artisan...I'm impressed!
Thank You Lisa
I have tried many superb, good, and mediocre shaving soaps over years of "traditional" shaving, and I am delighted to find in Lisa's soaps another one of the "chosen few" to go in the absolute top tier. I have Irish Green Treed and Somali Rose. The scents are very good,the performance--texture, ease of lathering, slickeness, and after shave feeling--is even better. I will try other scents shortly, as well as some of Lisa's other products. Well done!
The protection is excellent, and I love the scent. It lathers easily too.
