LIME SWIRL...Shaving Bar Soap with Citrus Essential Oils, for men and women, with mango butter, cocoa butter, shea butter, and french clay


"LIME SWIRL SHAVING SOAP"...An all natural shaving bar specially formulated for sensitive skin. If you are experiencing razor bumps, razor burn, rashes, and sensitivities after shaving it just may be the chemicals in that commercial can of shaving cream that you are using! I created this recipe specifically for my husband and brother that were experiencing these vary issues. My shaving soaps are loaded with skin nourishing butters (mango, shea, and cocoa) and essential oils ( lime, lemon, orange, and grapefruit), all well known for their effectiveness in reducing redness and inflammation. I've added a generous amount of french clay to pull out toxins and provide good razor slide. This soap makes a nice creamy lather and has an invigorating fresh lime fragrance that both men and women will enjoy. These bars are also very effective in reducing the redness and irritation associated with acne and a wonderful choice for young men just beginning to shave.

Ingredients: saponified lard, mango butter, shea butter, coconut oil, avocado oil, cocoa butter, and castor oil, buttermilk, therapeutic grade essential oils ( lime, lemon, grapefruit, and orange), french clay, salt, and natural mineral colors.

Recommended usage: specially formulated for shaving/irritated skin/bath/face/body bar/shower. No need for special mugs or use simply wet face down with hot water, lather soap up in your hands and apply the lather to your face. Shave as you normally would.

General info: My soaps are unique recipes that I have created. They are handcrafted in small batches using the old fashioned cold process method of saponification. I use only the highest quality ingredients available. I use a wide variety of oils based upon their attributes. My favorite oils are avocado, olive, and hemp oil. ( I do not use Palm oil in any of my recipes! ) I also love to incorporate cocoa butter, mango butter, and shea butter for their moisturizing properties. Natural additives including honey, buttermilk, clays, essential oils, and dairy products are added to certain recipes depending upon the purpose of the soap. Occasionally I will use fragrance oils and I clearly state that in my ingredients list. I use only natural colorants in my soaps. Natural coloring may come from mineral powders, herbs, oil infusions, clays, etc.. Rest assured my soaps are as natural as can possibly be!

I carefully choose and combine my ingredients and then the soap mixture is poured into my handcrafted wooden molds. Final touches such as designs, swirls, blossoms, etc are added and then the filled mold is put aside to set overnight. The soaps are unmolded the next morning and then they are hand cut into 1" thick bars. I use several different molds but generally each bar measures approximately 3.75" wide by about 2.50" tall. Some soaps will be much larger depending on design and composition but most soaps weigh approximately 4- 5.5 oz. Round shaving bars are poured in a 3" diameter mold and end up approximately 2.75" in diameter cut 1" thick. These usually end up weighing about 3.5 oz after curing. I also make kids soaps and pet soaps. These bars were designed to be easy for little hands to hold and are great when you need one hand on the soap and another on the baby or pet. They measure approximately 1"x2"x3" and weigh between 3-4 oz. These soaps are handcrafted so they will vary slightly in design from bar to bar and batch to batch.

After being cut into bars the next step is to set the bars aside on racks to allow them to cure for 4-6 weeks. During this time the soaps harden and moisture evaporates. This step is necessary so that you will receive a soap with proper ph that is hard and will last! All of the soaps listed in my shop have already undergone the curing process but if a custom order is made it will take 4-6 weeks before they are ready for use. I do not normally shave, plane, and/or polish my soaps as this creates a huge amount of waste and you would receive less soap for your money. I shrink wrap the soaps and they are banded and labeled with purchased recycled brown paper. I shy away from expensive packaging because the wrapper ends up in the trash...and then in a landfill. I make every effort to be as earth friendly as possible.

Because I keep my labels and packaging simple I can usually accomodate special gift labels or can easily customize a label for your Bed and Breakfast, lodge, or pet spa.

Sorry folks, due to the nature of the product I cannot accept returns. If you have any questions or problems please contact me and I will do whatever I can to make you happy.


Please be sure to read the ingredient list for any known allergies.

Everyone's skin is different, please discontinue use if you develope any sensitivities.

Most of my soaps contain essential oils...I am generally heavy handed in my usage but please remember, as a general rule, essential oils do not have the strong fragrance that fragrance oils do.

If you are pregnant or breast feeding please check with your doctor about the use of soaps with essential oils in them.

Soaps tend to last much longer if left in a draining soap dish

Any decorative items (cinnamon sticks, mosses, star anise, etc) should be monitored and removed when they become loose so as not to go down your drains and create a clog.

These are handcrafted hand cut soaps, they will vary slightly in design and in weight. Usually the bars weigh within a few tenths of an ounce of each other.
