  • Saponificio Varesino Cosmo 4.2 Shaving Soap - 150g

    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 for Cosmoprof 2016 international fair.  Cosmo shaving soap represents the latest evolution in the Beta formulations and a big step towards slickness and post shave properties enhancement, hence the definition “beta 4.2”.  The new formulation, different from the previous ones made, and the addition of larch extract (Genus Larix Extract), provide an excellent post shave and an overall amazing shave experience.  The larch extract is also able to reduce the trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL), thus helping those skin types that tend to dryness.  Saponificio Varesino also added a new vegetal compound, based on castor oil, that gives a lubricating action and helps the razor mechanical action.

    The aluminum container is anthracite coloured, enriched with a metallic label in antique brass.
