SHAVING SOAP - Old Fashioned Fennel and Bentonite Clay


for more information on product


All of us, well almost all of us, need a great shaving soap. And it is even better when it is a natural, biodegradable, healthy, vegan and affordable shaving soap.

The secret to making a great shaving soap is using bentonite clay which gives it that slip you need in a shaving soap and rich oils. This rich shaving soap can be used with a brush (best for thicker beard hair) or without a brush (makes it easy to shave legs and underarms.

To create this light, refreshing scent I use no fragrance, only essential oils of Fennel, Fir, Anise, Bergamot, Caraway, Thyme, and Cinnamon. The shaving bar provides healthy gentle antibacterial creamy suds for happy skin and a close shave. The essential oils give this shaving soap pleasing scent without overwhelming you or others.

Saponified Oils of Coconut Oil, Organic and Sustainable Palm Oil, Sunflower Oil, Olive Oil, Castor Oil, Cocoa Butter, American Bentonite Clay, Essential Oils of Fennel, Fir, Anise, Bergamot, Caraway, Thyme, and Cinnamon. There is no fragrance in this shaving soap.

This shaving bar is a little more exotic with spicy, earthy essential oils that provide a little cleansing and healing with their outdoor scent. I add a splash of sandalwood fragrance for that extra grounding in the morning to start your day off right.

Saponified Oils of Coconut Oil, Organic and Sustainable Palm Oil, Sunflower Oil, Olive Oil, Castor Oil, Cocoa Butter, American Bentonite Clay, Sandalwood Fragrance, Essential Oils of Lemongrass,Cedarwood, Patchouli, Turmeric and Vetiver.

My husband has a nice shaving brush he uses in a shaving cup. I use my shaving soap directly in the shower. I just need to keep it dry between showers so it gets place up high.

This round soap should fit in most shaving soap containers. It is approximately 3 inches wide by 1 1/4 deep and weighs 3.5 to 4.5 oz depending on age of bar. Older soaps shrink a little and weigh less (but older soaps tend to last longer.)

Organic and Sustainable Palm Oil

Ziryab’s only uses organic and sustainable palm oil and palm kernel oil. I believe in supporting the existing sustainable and organic palm industry rather than moving the problem if exotic vegetable oils to another, less well known area of the world.  Please see my blog about the sustainable palm oil
