Using the same black shaving soap formula used in our Blackfern and The Black Rose shaving soaps, which includes activated charcoal and French red clay and provides lots of rich slick lather, Vert Noir is a green scent that is great for those looking for a scent with plenty of fresh plant notes that aren't overly floral.
Please note that this is our new French red clay & charcoal base, which provides excellent slickness and post-shave that rivals any tallow soap while remaining true to our vegan roots. This base needs a little less water than a lot of other soaps on the market, so load using a damp brush then add water to the point where a thick creamy slick lather is achieved.
Ingredients: Stearic Acid, Palm Kernel Oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Glycerin, Shea Butter, Castor Oil, Water, Aloe Vera Juice, Essential Oils (Sea Buckthorn Essential Oil, Activated Charcoal, Bergamot Essential Oil, Organic Cypress Leaf Essential Oil, Frankincense Essential Oil, Violet Leaf Absolute, Jasmine Absolute), French Red Clay, Sodium Lactate, Allantoin (comfrey plant).
Good soap but I wish it were more fragrant.
Long time user of Los Angeles shaving soap. First time I've purchased the Vert Noir. Same awesome lather I've come to expect. Scent reminds me of a barn; hay like. Pleasant though.
