A luxury top quality shaving soap, created by an artisan craftsman, Martin De Candre soaps are renowned across the shaving fraternity as one of the best if not the best shaving soap in the world.

Traditionally made soap using the Marseilles or Hot Process method, Martin de Candre Shaving Soap generates a rich and warm lather when used with a shaving brush and hot water. The lather protects the skin and softens the beard while providing an extremely close shave.

What are the main advantages of the MdC shaving soap, by Martin de Candre:

" We have elaborated a unique hot process soap-making method which we have been using in our workshop for 40 years with perfect control over the quality process, using 100% natural essential oils. A soap made with this process ensures excellent heat retention without adding any preservatives. At the end of cooking, we add the finest essential oils to the warm paste which allows us to have scented soaps right to their core. It then takes weeks for the soap to dry and to rid all excess water and refine itself. In our day and age where everything goes fast, it may seem crazy... but this is the only sure way to greatly enhance shaving soap lather and fragrance properties! "

Pricey, but...

Old classic Fougere scented hard soap, filled to the brim. Although unbelievably pricey, seemed like it would last for a long long time. The soap went through +/- 14 shaves, and still looked almost untouched. Excellent lather quality, protection and postshave feel.
