Werfzeep Shaving soap - 100 gr
The horse chestnut extract has an anti-inflammatory, astringent and astringent effect, nettle has a purifying effect and stimulates blood circulation.
Just before the soap is poured on, larix hydrolate is stirred through it. Larix contributes to the purifying and calming effect of the shaving soap, and it has a wonderful scent. In addition, this soap smells of cedar, eucalyptus and pine oil.
Because the base of this shaving soap consists of nourishing saponified oils, the foam will not remain as stiff on your skin as with shaving soap or foam that consists mostly of stearic acid (can be found on the label as sodium stearate). Such foam is stiff for a long time but also dries out the skin. To be able to shave carefully and without razor burn, you not only need foam but also the smooth film that this shaving soap applies to the skin. This nourishes the skin and softens the hair so that you can shave smoothly and painlessly.
This shaving soap lasts more than a year.

EnvironmentWerfzeep originated in 2009 from Evelien's preference for old crafts and natural products. During a trip through Canada that she and Laurens made, she ended up on an idyllic family farm where, among other things, soap was made, with a ladle and an enormous pan. The wooden house smelled like a fairytale and immediately on the first day Evelien helped with making soap. To her surprise, this handmade soap, which was in the shower and by the sink, was gentle and caring for her skin. Having been plagued with eczema since childhood, soap had been out of the question for years, but this soap turned out to be a very different story than anything she'd been acquainted with until then, which mainly caused her to feel itchy.
Soap made from oils is a completely different product than factory soap made from refined fatty acids, with additives such as foam improvers, synthetic perfumes and preservatives, which also have the glycerine skimmed off. This discovery was enough for Evelien to become completely captivated by soap, the craft soap seedling, all possible ingredients and the effect on the skin. She started developing her soaps in a historic wharf cellar on the Oudegracht in Utrecht. Now, eight years later, she works with a growing team in the beautiful soap workshop on the Westerkade.
