Unlike the previous shaving soaps we had the pleasure of reading above, Saponificio Varesino indicates in its list the already saponified ingredients. Being a "sum", the highest part of the ingredients list is compulsorily taken.
Sodium cocoate is the equivalent of coconut oil but saponified, (in solid type soaps this excellent base is almost always the saponification base chosen by the manufacturer), potassium stearate is the reagent that makes up the shaving soap, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate is the foaming agent, and Sodium Rapeseedate increases the viscosity of the shaving soap. At this point we find the strengths of the product: Coconut oil, ash oil extract, erythriol (a kind of sugar), coco glucoside (natural surfactant that increases foaming) Glyceril Oleate the esterification of glycerin that in the right doses has an excellent emollient power, Castor oil, Larch extract (moisturizer for the skin) sucrose cocoate (an additional emollient for the skin), Shorea seed butter (endemic plant of Borneo) followed by the fragrance.
From here, the lower area of the ingredients area begins, becoming less incisive in the formula but which added together can still make a difference.
Gardenia extract and frangipani extract (both flowers), carnaruba palm extract, macadamia seed oil, shea butter, sweet almond oil, rice starch, xanthan gum (thickener), glycerin and closing grapeseed oil .
An important formula that makes extensive use of uncommon ingredients.
This formula calls for fast foaming and the amount of vegetable fats in the formula is very high. Some decidedly rare and sought-after ingredients (even if in limited presence) justify the above average price.
