concerning shaving with a straight razor, i am looking for a good shave soap. i'm normally fairly lazy and just use foam in a can, which works.

i was looking at some triumph and disaster brand, but it has aluminium in it!

so i'm looking for a kiwimade, fairly organic shave soap.
anyone?


cheers

Yes, Ria Soap do a really good 'natural' range of soaps at a very reasonable price.

As you can see they are only $3.50 each and last a while. My husband keeps his in a small container in the bathroom and is only used for shaving (even I use it on my legs).
She is based in Huntly but does mail order.

I've just planted soapwort it is supposed to make a very mild and soothing liquid soap, it might be worth trying, it's flowers are attractive to bees and butterflies.

PS just read it's poisonous to stock.

Just me and the cat now, on 2 acres of fruit and veg + hazel nuts, macadamia, chestnuts and walnuts,

let me know how it goes. Kumarahoe is also good native soap. And i think rangiora can be extracted too.
