It is called "Original", from the Latin "originalis" that we can translate as: "which was not made according to a model and which serves or will serve as a model" ... It is the figurehead Martin de Candre shaving soaps.
The main advantages of MdC shaving soap:
- A hot saponification, made by us in our workshop, with 100% vegetable oils (olive, copra) and potash (Alcali). Our 40 years of experience allow us to guarantee perfect control of this process.
- A fully hot saponified paste guarantees an excellent conservation, without the addition of any preservative.
- At the end of the cooking process, we add in the still hot paste essential oils which allows us to perfume our soaps at their very heart.
- Weeks of drying, so that the soap loses weight, its water. Taking the time to dry the soap is a "madness" when today, everything must go very fast ... but there is no secret: the paste and the perfume are greatly improved!
- A brand product, made by a French craftsman, a luxurious product ... and yet one of the most economical: it lasts a good year according to your feedback and comments.
And finally let's talk about its foam:
The foam takes shape quickly, under the beautiful gestures of the shaving brush, you get a smooth shave, very close, and without skin aggression. The foam is abundant, it "sticks" to the skin: we get on the face like a soft and unctuous cream. This foam is really beautiful but YOU are undoubtedly speaking about it better than anyone!
