A great shaving experience calls for a high-quality razor. But there’s more to that. Your skin also needs a great lather that’ll cushion it from razor cuts, nicks, and irritation. While most of the shaving soaps on the market promise this, not all of them deliver.
Most of them are bathing soaps in disguise. Quality shaving soap should have a decent amount of vegetable fat and glycerin. These 2 work together by hydrating the skin and making it smooth. The fat is also essential since it lubricates the razor making it glide smoothly without causing any nicks or cuts. On this section, you’ll find this years’ must-buy shaving soaps.
