The Abbate y La Mantia Garden Shaving Soap was made in beehives - figuratively, but also somewhat literally.
As with all of their shaving soaps, the base is saponified with the active ingredients of saffron but this time with the best melted pollen from Tuscan beehives. The pollen adds a refined soothing effect to the soap - suitable for those with a strong sense of smell and sensitive skin.
In addition, a carefully measured high-quality fragrance of gardenia, red rose, and honeysuckle has been added, creating a complex and encompassing olfactory profile likely to cause one to fantasise of dreamy summer days spent in a beautiful Monet-style garden.
The soap produces a wonderfully creamy and protective lather.
CAROTENOIDS - They fight free radicals, which are responsible for cellular ageing. They have antioxidant and anticancer effects and they help against the decay of brain cells. Saffron has the highest content of carotenoids (1000 times more than that of a carrot). It contains soluble carotenoids, so they can be very easily assimilated.
VITAMIN B1 - Very important for the metabolism (it transforms sugar into energy).
VITAMIN B2 - Necessary for cellular metabolism, it strengthens the immune system and helps assimilate iron.
*VITAMIN B1 and VITAMIN B2 are present in saffron in abundance. Moreover saffron also contains a large quantity of vitamin C and B6.
SAFRANALE - It activates the metabolism, is assimilated very fast, and makes it easier to produce gastric juices which help digestion. The safranale is the element which determines the typical saffron smell.
