In stock

The new version Dolomiti Shaving Soap has an improved stronger scent. Made in Italy, triple milled, natural ingredients, sensational scent, many say Veresino make the best shaving soaps in the world. As this is made from natural ingredients that colour varies slightly from a creamy to charcoal colour.

The soap is beautifully presented in a branded, stiff outer cardboard box. Inside there’s a plastic container which contains the soap. The container is useful as you can use this to hold the soap in the absence of a shaving bowl.

The first thing that hits you when you open the box is the amazing scent which has notes of citrusy lemons and limes, patchouli, sandalwood and cedarwood. It is a highly pleasing scent that isn’t overpowering yet it delivers a soothing aroma quite unlike any other I have experienced before.

Varesino have been producing soaps since 1945, they still use traditional, artisan, handmade manufacturing processes today.  Dolomiti refers to the Dolomite mountains; this soap contains formulation Beta 4.0 which is known in Italy as Silt of the Dolomites. This slit contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Additionally the formula contains antibacterial and ingredients that promote lubrication, soothing and skin toning. It's this natural silt that gives this soap it dark colouring, don't worry, it lathers up to a white colour. Refer to the second supporting image to see how the soap looks unlathered.

NO EDTA - SLS - BHT - SLES - PEG - nasty chemicals that can damage skin
100% vegetable (except fragrance)

While you shower, pour hot water into the container your soap is in, this will soften the surface of the soap, with a light circular motion, load up your shaving brush up for around 30-60 seconds. 
Paint the lather onto the bearded area.
After use, pat the surface dry and leave the soap to dry out ready for use the following day.

There are shaving soaps that are very good indeed, Fitjar, Trumper's Coconut, Mitchell's Wool Fat and eShave Orange & Sandalwood spring to mind Varesino of Italy shaving soaps are right up there with them in terms of the richness of the lather and the scent is simply awesome.
