New - Shaving soap with Peppermint

Lads, it's time to look after your face. Ladies, pay attention for your shaving needs also.

Every ones skin is different, and when it come to shaving, everyone's stubble also varies. So, what works well for some, may not work for others.

I have read a lot about shaving cream and why people use it. Some say it helps the razor glide across the face better, some say it helps moisturise the skin and reduces razor burn. Personally, I find many creams dry my face out and they have additives in them I would rather not use including Sodium Lauryl Sulfate which I have written about.

Some people say soap dries their skin out if used for shaving, but I guess these people have not used handmade moisturising soaps, as most commercial soaps are almost certain to dry your skin out.

The reasons for using the following ingredients:

Coconut Oil
Not only does it produce a rock hard soap with a fantastic lather but this oil is wonderfully moisturising and adds a barrier to the skin protecting it from the elements. It's cleansing ability is amazing and is one of the few oils that produces a soap that will lather in salt water.
Castor Oil
Great for a producing a soap with good lather Good for hair care and makes a wonderful natural shampoo bar. Easily absorbed by the skin making it a great skin softener and conditioner
Cocoa Butter
Produces a hard bar with a stable lather, is very conditioning making it good for eczema, dermatitis, stretch marks, creates a barrier between your skin and the sometimes harsh environment, keeping the moisture in your skin where it belongs.

Olive Oil
Olive oil supports regeneration of the skin tissue and the regulation of natural moisture balance. Rich in high quality antioxidants, which neutralise free radicals that can be harmful to the skin. Rich in substances with anti-inflammatory effects.

Sweet Almond Oil
Contributes a nice creamy lather and conditioning properties. High in Vitamins E, A and D as well as Oleic and Linoleic fatty acids, this oil is perfect for soothing dry, flaky and irritated skin. It is said to be beneficial for skin ailments like rashes, psoriasis and eczema.

Hazelnut Oil
