Based on our artisanally saponified shaving soap formula, our take on Bay Rum, (named after the Santa Monica Bay which gives L.A. its glorious beaches) begins with Pimenta Racimosa, aka West Indies Bay, plus a generous measure of Goslings black seal rum, and is rounded out with a variety of citrus and woody extracts and essential oils to provide a light and pleasant scent. Just the thing for a day on deck or on the shore, or for thoughts thereof.
Please note that this is our new French red clay 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.

This soap smells incredible. Plenty of spice with enough citrus and rum. This soap is easy to lather. It has plenty of cushion and is slick. The post shave feel is great also.
