From the vendor:

Special Edition Shaving Soap for Cosmoprof 2016 international fair.

Cosmo shaving soap represents our latest evolution in the Beta formulations and a big step towards slickness and post shave properties enhancement, hence the definition “beta 4.2”.

The renewed formulation, different from the previous ones we 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.

We 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.

Other important features of Cosmo Shaving Soap are:

  • 100% Vegetable (except from the fragrance)
  • no palm oil
  • no preservatives/chelating agents/anti-oxidants of chemical origin
  • no petroleum derivatives, no mineral oils, no colouring agents, no
  • parabens
  • no EDTA – SLS – BHT – SLES – PEG

Ingredients: Sodium Cocoate – Potassium Stearate – Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate- Sodium Rapeseedate – Sodium Sunflower Seedate – Aqua (Water) – Galactoarabinan – Ricinus Communis (Castor) Oil – Fraxinus

Usage advice

Our formulations contain active ingredients that, in order to give the best perfomance, need to solubilize and/or melt. The maximum performance can be obtained in this way:
  • 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),
  • face/bowl lather without adding water.

    I do a lot of research on which soaps I want to get and that is why many of my review are 4 and 5 stars, and this line is one of the best I am presently buying. I am going to steal a description of this soap I had seen a while back – ” like sitting in an Italian Master Barber’s chair in Sicily while a huge espresso machine is pumping out espressos for everyone – Italian barber and coffee.” I don’t get a ton of coffee from it, and then only once lathered, but this again is a classic subtle scent. Lathers up like crazy and face feel during and after the shave is the best and even feels like it’s doing some moisturizing. Had a sample of this one’s aftershave and that is one you have to get !

    Cosmo is a fantastic, refined, scent that’s on the sweeter side; I get coffee, sandalwood and vanilla during the dry-down, but also a ton of scents I can’t quite put my finger on… if you like the richer scents in an aftershave, this one’s for you! The soap is a top performer; I was initially reluctant to try vegan soaps due to the slickness offered by tallow, but this soap blew my expectations out of the water. Give it a shot!

    This is a great lathering soap. This soap was into a full lather on my SOC boar brush within 1 and very little soap required. The shave was slick and smooth and the post shave feel after I rinsed in some cool water was by far the most luxurious feeling I have ever felt. This soap has lived up to it’s billing and price point with every shave. I pair it with the aftershave and this combo is fantastic. The scent is unique, it’s potent and full from lather to post shave. My bathroom holds the scent for at least 24 hours. SV is becoming my favourite soaps.
