  • Saponificio Varesino 70th Anniversary Shaving Soap

    Unlike most vendors in North America, Michael and I have actually stepped inside the storied walls of Saponificio Varesino in Brebbia, Italy.  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, Paolo and Alessandro are super passionate about soap making, 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 soap offering so special.  After visiting the operation and meeting the team, I know how important this soap is to 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 shaving soap is one of the very best you'll ever use, don't hesitate to add it to your collection along with the matching aftershave.

    Special Edition Shaving Soap was made to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of Saponificio Varesino.  This shaving soap is different from the previous three made by Saponificio Varesino(Aromatic Fern, Dolomiti, Manna di Sicilia), since the raw materials have been measured and balanced in a very different way.  In addition to the previous formulation "Beta 4.0", that has been reworked, they added the illipe butter which prevents and combats skin dryness, giving long lasting hydration and bringing back its own elasticity. They also added Macadamia oil, known to have a natural sun protection factor (SPF). In addition to protecting the skin from the sun, it moisturizes and protects the skin from the elements.  This new formula has been specially designed to ensure extremely comfortable shaves and a fabulous post shave .

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