Kaizen - To Constantly Improve

Scent Notes: Mandarin, Calabrian Bergamot, Lemon Peel, Neroli, Honeysuckle, Green Apple, Rose, Tobacco Absolute, Haitian Vetiver, Sandalwood, Cedarwood

This new soap base has been in the works for a very long time.

Kaizen is a game changer for us. My goal was to be strong in all categories. These included:
  • Affordability
  • Ease of use
  • Creaminess
  • Density of lather
  • Slickness
  • Residual slickness
  • Cushion/ protection
  • Longevity of lather
  • Moisturizing
  • Great post-shave (hours after the shave)

Kaizen hit all the goals I set forth and more. I’m very proud to introduce our first soap by the same name, Kaizen.

I wanted our artist Dorian to create a label which personified our branding for this particular soap. I knew I would launch the first soap under the same name, so it needed to have an Asian influence. I wanted it to be whimsical, edgy, sexy, colorful and grab your attention. She did a superb job creating this label! The scent is a bit brighter than I would normally introduce. Even our previous fruit themed soaps like Asian Pear, Asian Plum and Summer Fig offer a hint of darkness which I left out of this soap. Kaizen is happy, sunny, bright and deliciously sweet (although I toned down the sweetness just prior to release).

Ingredients: Stearic Acid, Beef Tallow, Aqua, Goats Milk, Potassium Hydroxide, Kokum Butter, Shea Butter, Castor Oil, Cocoa Butter, Sodium Hydroxide, Glycerin, Manteca, Aloe Juice, Avocado Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Apricot Kernal Seed Oil, Lanolin, Agave, Slippery Elm, Sodium Lactate, Xanthan Gum, Silk Amino Acid, Tussah Silk, Marshmallow Root

Disaster

This soap was not the worst performing soap I have ever used but for the price it was a disaster. First of all there just wasn't much sent at all except for the tallow and the castor oil. Performance was at best OK, but not up to say Cella. Then, before it was fully used up, the tallow congealed into hard granules which did not dissolve when lathering. Frankly, I think the hype surrounding this soap is a case of The Emperor's New Suit. Tedolph

Latherability and density is second to none. One Wholly Kaw & Milksteak bases come very close to this beast.

It has a fruity scent and whips up an amazing lather. It was a pleasure shaving with this soap.

This is a pretty good soap overall to have in a collection but purchasing a second one is not necessary. The scent is not overpowering and the lather is just right. I am going to pass on adding the aftershave to my collection. Disclaimer: A&E has poor customer service. An aftershave, Peaches & Cognac, was ordered directly from A&E and delivered damaged. A&E failed to replace it after waiting two weeks so I went through PayPal for a refund. I will not order from them again or join the club.

Customer review

For some reason ive never been able to use peters soaps because the 4 i tried back in the day all gave me a bad reaction. Ive never been able to figure out what it was because ive never had that happen from any other soap. I saw this release and i heard how great it was so with it being a new formula and all i figured ahh what the hell ill give it a try and luckly i had zero reactions to it. And im so happy because it was a amazing product. Now im looking forward to buying more releases in this base.
