Saponificio Varesino 70th Anniversary – Shaving Soap 150g
From the vendor:
Special Edition Shaving Soap made to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of Saponificio Varesino.
This shaving soap is different from the previous three we made (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, we added the butter of illipe, which prevents and combats skin dryness giving long lasting hydration and bringing back its own elasticity. We added Macadamia oil, known to have a natural sun protection factor (SPF). In addition to protecting the skin from the sun, it moisturises and protects.
A specially designed formulation to ensure extremely comfortable shaves and a fabulous post shave .
All the above characteristics are the explanation of the name Beta 4.1
A soap with generous dimensions (90mm diameter) in aluminum tin, decorated with a metallic embossed label.
The fragrance is a fresh cologne, aquatic, floral and aromatic, with woody base note and amber.
Below we explore the characteristics of the soap:
• 100% vegetable (except fragrance)

- cover the soap surface with a thin veil of hot water for few minutes. The quantity of water needed may vary depending on your water hardness and the rate of humidity of the soap, a correct quantity is when the whole soap surface is covered by water,
- soak a badger shaving brush (being it the best perfomer when it comes to water absorbing),
- rinse it well and then pour the thin veil of water that bloomed the soap on the knot, and then start loading (20-30 seconds),
