Everything used in a traditional shave was simple yet beneficial. The bristle of the shaving brush lifts the hairs off the face and also ensures that lots of water is applied allowing the hairs to soften, ready for shaving. The shaving soaps used were also simple, without many of the harmful chemicals we find in modern day shaving soaps and creams. Also modern day canned gels and foams use petroleum based lubricants which repel water rather than absorb and incorporate it. In addition the aerosols used to get the product out of the can further dry your skin

A shaving brush is essential for traditional shaving
Our natural boar hair brush
Our shaving brush is made from 100% natural boar bristle.
A natural hair brush is essential for a great shave. By virtue of its numerous bristles, a shaving brush is the best way to generate a rich, warm and silky lather. A rich lather is important because it protects and lubricates the skin. The gentle friction of the bristles on your face as you lather softens your beard and opens the pores. This action is also exfoliating, removing dead surface cells and preventing in-grown hairs.
