Fresh Batch – Rustico Shave Soap

This is one of the few recipes I make in large quantities.  Even so, it seems to disappear almost as fast as I can make it.


The spices intermingling with essential oils and chocolate are a delight for pretty much everyone who’s used it so far.

Made with beer, skin-loving aloe, home made buttermilk, coconut milk, goat milk, whey, castor oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, mango butter, and a touch of both silk and algae extract, it’s conditioning as well as cleansing.  It has plenty of bentonite clay for good razor slip during the shave.

The scent is from a beautiful blend of essential oils, the beautiful color is from cocoa powder.  This soap has left color on a washcloth a time or two.  However, that washes right out for me.  I use a different soap and lather the washcloth up while still in the shower – I shave first and wash second – when I rinse the washcloth, the color marks are gone.  So far, it hasn’t colored my husband’s badger brush and no one has complained about the color.

These are just under 3″ in diameter and should fit most shaving cups.  However, it’s fairly easy to whittle down to size if the soap is too big.
