Noberu Amber Lime Shaving Soap

Post by fallingwickets » Thu Apr 19, 2018 5:59 am

Bought a puck from Phil - bullgoose - recently and have to say it's quite nice. The scent is on the classic side of things and if you're a fan of a dry lather, this works perfectly. The only thing that would make this top notch, 79 thumbs up worthy, would be if the scent was rose :lol:

As an aside, and per recent discussions in the, That Lather thread, PS is third in line (not too shabby I suppose!)
Potassium Palmate, SodiumlPalmate, Potassium Stearate

Thanks for the review of this, Clive. Been pondering that Sandalwood one. I'm a sucker for sandalwood of every stripe.

The potassium palmate, sodium palmate, potassium stearate trio leading things off is promising. That's the usual arrangement for the better veggie soaps currently available. Just looked at a $30+/puck soap that has the same first three ingredients.

You mentioned dry lather. Would you describe it as airy/crispy, or was it pretty dense lather?

Tim, I would call it dense.
