Chiseled Face Sherlock Artisan Shaving Soap, 4oz - Silk Tallow Base

2 reviews
We currently have 3 in stock.

Introducing our new silk tallow base with my personal favorite Sherlock fragrance.

Our Sherlock scent is inspired by the character brought to life in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in his classic series – The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes – written in the late 1800’s.

It is a warm tobacco based scent blended with toasted caramel, black pepper, moist dirt, and finished with a touch of leather, moss, mandarin, honey and rose.

While we still stand behind our OG base 100% and do not currently have plans to discontinue it, it has been five years since it was released and it was time to create a more modern shaving soap formula.

We tested ingredient after ingredient racking up fifty-six test batches before we settled on this one. The main secret is a massive amount of silk hydrolysate which is a very conditioning, natural, film-forming agent which is used in a lot of anti-aging creams (anti-aging statement not evaluated by the FDA).

Some of my testers reported feeling a skin tightening sensation - be aware that this is the film left by the silk hydrolysate.

For best results, load soaking wet brush for 40 seconds in the tub, then build lather on wet face for an additional minute.

Ingredients: Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Castor Oil, Beef Tallow, Silk Hydrolysate, Potassium Hydroxide (lye), Lanolin, Aloe Vera Juice, Water, Fragrance, White Kaolin Clay, Sodium Lactate, Kukom Butter, Allantoin, Sodium Hydroxide (lye), Sugar, Slippery Elm Bark Extract

A Lovely Earthy Shaving Soap

I’ll begin with the scent. Think TOBS “Mr. Taylor” or T&H Grafton shaving creams, add in a distinct Earthy accord and IMO this is how I describe the scent of this shaving soap. Now the lather. It’s good when whipped up, rather translucent, not in the league of D.G., B&M., A&E., Z.M.,N.O or W.K. but pretty good. Slickness and post shave is very good. All in all a very good soap. I can recommend.

This is a half gourmand, half tobacco scent and it's amazing! One of my favorite scents in wet shaving. Performance in my opinion is elite. The stuff you read online about this being hard to lather is in my experience wrong, it's not hard to lather at all. Also this soap is said to have a "skin tightening" effect due to the amount of silk in the formula but it is in no way drying - the post shave with this soap is easy among the other elite soaps on the market.The scent is not offensive or polarizing at all like Loyal or Midnight Stag. This in my opinion is a must buy!
