  • Saponificio Varesino 70th Anniversary Aftershave Balm

    Unlike most vendors in North America, Michael and I have actually stepped inside the storied walls of Saponificio Varesino in Brebbia, Italy; we take great pride in not only stocking the best products in Italy but actually visiting and getting to know the artisans who create them.  On a recent trip to Italy, we made the drive up to the province of Varese to visit, tour and sit down with Paolo and Ale, the two Gentlemen that lead the Saponificio Varesino team.  Their soap making compound is impressive at first sight but what is more impressive is the love and care they take when making their soaps and personal care products, Paolo and Alessandro are super passionate about soaps and natural cosmetics, in fact, Paolo is a third generation soap making artisan. His Grandfather started the business in Varese more than 70 years ago, that's what makes this aftershave so special.  After visiting the operation and meeting the team, I know how sentimental these products are for the company.  Most companies don't survive one generation, let alone three, and Saponificio Varesino is surviving and thriving in the third generation!  This special aftershave is one of the very best you'll ever use, don't hesitate to add it to your collection along with the matching shaving soap.

    Saponificio Varesino Aftershave Balm is a rich formula which has the characteristics somewhere in between an alcohol based spalsh(alcohol from vegetable origin) and a fluid cream traditional aftershave balm.  It is a 100% vegetable based aftershave other than the fragrance.  The use of food preservatives, ensure an excellent formulation without compromising quality, in order to care for your skin.  Shake well before each use for best performance.

    The active ingredients make the formulation complex and rich, similar to a cream.  These active ingredients include the following:

    • Rocket: anti oxidant, anti redness
    • Witch hazel: purifying and decongestant
    • Lemon: toning, anti-aging, firming
    • Aloe: healing
    • Malva: decongestant, emollient, moisturizing
    • Calendula: nourishing, healing, calming, soothing
    • Chamomile: soothing, antibacterial, soothing, refreshing
    • Eucalyptus: balsamic, refreshing, antibacterial
    • Lavender: antibacterial, soothing
    • Vitamin E: anti-inflammatory, emollient

      Apply just a small amount as it is a very rich formula

      Scent: The 70th Anniversary scent is a fresh colonia type aquatic fragrance.  It is floral and aromatic, with a woody base note and amber.
