CELLA, Crema Sapone Extra Extra Purissima
There is no better test of greatness than “standing the test of time” and Cella Crema Sapone passes with flying colours. As far as I know, the formula for Cella is virtually unchanged since it's introduction in 1899. In Italy, you will find many master barbers and experienced wet-shavers that consider Cella to be the greatest shaving soap ever produced and after personally usually Cella dozens of times, I certainly share the same opinion.
Cella comes in two formats, a 150 gram screw-top red “Ciotola” (tub/bowl) and a 1000 gram block in a red cardboard box. Being a soft soap, pieces can easily be sliced off the block and molded into your favorite shaving bowl or mug. For those that prefer convenience and travel often, the 150 gram Ciotola is the preferred choice. Cella is scented of sweet almonds or marzipan.
Cella is first-class in every regard... purest natural ingredients, shave performance, scent and presentation. You will be hard-pressed to find a better shaving soap any where in the world, at any price!
Note: I've been told the 1000 gram brick will provide over 2 years of daily shaving; A true value!
