The perfect, premium zero-waste shaving set includes a Hand-tooled shaving bowl, Horsehair shave brush and Shave bar
Shave Bowl: These beautiful hand-tooled wooden shave bowls are custom made just north of Minneapolis for Sebesta Apothecary. Each bowl is made in slightly varied sizes and shapes, using multiple woods harvested from naturally fallen trees - Elm, Oak, Boxelder
Shave Brush - Horsehair: When used in combination with the shaving bar, this brush provides a high-quality shave without the waste. The bristles of this brush are made with horsehair, the most humanly sourced option and the wooden handle results in the most eco-friendly option for shaving.
Shave Bar: The clay and oatmeal in this bar creates a luxurious lather that has enough slip to allow even the cheapest razor to safely glide over the skin while providing a smooth shave. The added moisturizing oils condition and leave skin feeling hydrated and soft.
Shave Bar Ingredients: Olive oil, Coconut oil, Castor oil, Shea butter, Water, Lye, Bentonite clay, Colloidal oatmeal, Juniper berry, and Clove essential oils.
2.5 oz round bar, lasts 6-8 months when used with the brush
Directions for use: Use bar as is, or for longer use and thicker lather use with a shave brush.
Drop shave bar into the bottom of a mug, small cup or dish. Add a small splash of water to soap and begin to brush the bar to create foam. Continue brushing until you have enough of the thick lather to work with. Add a few additional drops of water if needed.
Apply lather to skin using the brush and shave as usual.
Once shaving is complete, pour out any excess water from the bowl, rinse soap from brush, shake off excess water and allow to dry bristles down for next use. Soap and bubbles remain in the bowl to dry, the lather will be reactivated with water during the next use.
NOTE: This brush is natural hair that will have a scent. Before first use, soak bristles in white vinegar overnight, rinse and allow to dry. Repeat if necessary. The scent will fade completely with use.
