Extro Cosmesi – An Introduction
Extro Cosmesi – An Introduction
Located in the beautiful town of Settimo Torinese, on the outskirts of Turin northern Italy, Extro Cosmesi is the brainchild of Italian cosmetics master Donato Ciniello. Having worked in the cosmetics industry for over 30 years Donato wanted to pursue a new path and so he turned his attentions to the world of traditional wet shaving and Extro Cosmesi was born. Free from parabens and harsh alcohols, the shaving soaps are enriched with Q10, Royal Jelly, Calendula Oil and other natural ingredients all designed to nourish, protect and take care of your skin. No animal testing was used for either the shaving creams or aftershaves. Extro Cosmesi soaps are soft, the texture being similar to putty. This soft texture means it's very easy to whip up a rich, creamy lather.
Donato has created a range of 100% vegetable based shaving soaps that deliver incredible wet shaving performance. 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 . From one of his 150ml shaving soaps you should expect anywhere between four to five months daily use.
To match each of his shaving soaps, Donato has created an Eau de Toilette aftershave splash. As these aftershaves use vegetable alcohol, so they are less harsh on the face and they can be used after shaving to tone, refresh and lightly scent the skin.
As they contain quite a high percentage of fragrance you can also use them as a cologne for use during the day or evening. Each aftershave splash comes in a 125ml glass bottle, some of them may require to be shaken before application.
Below you can discover the unique delights of each of the individual fragrances from Extro Cosmesi available in our current range.
