If you're willing to splash out a little in your search for a luxurious, plant-based shaving soap, look no further than Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements Astra Planeta Shaving Soap. Handmade in the USA, PAA have developed their premium CK-6 Formula and this is the Astra Planeta version, a tobacco-based scent.
To create this CK-6 Formula, Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements set themselves the task of innovating a super slick and smooth shaving soap that didn't need any animal products whatsoever. They wanted to outshine even tallow-based soaps using all plant-based ingredients.
After much testing they finally settled on a blend of kokum butter, cocoa butter, shea butter, jojoba wax, bacuri butter, cupuacu butter and murumuru butter. Take note of the last three ingredients as these are what make the CK-6 Formula particularly unique and special. We also stock the John Frum fragrance version of CK-6.
Using these oils from South America, Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements believe they've landed on a combination that surpasses the glide, moisturising potential and post-shave feel of even tallow-based soaps.
To use this shaving soap, simply take a wet shaving brush and start to whip up the product onto the brush. You can then use a shaving bowl to lather up the product into a cream, or you can apply directly to the face.
The fragrance is part of Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements' Astra Planeta range which is a vintage tobacco plant fragrance.
Alongside the warm tobacco plant aroma are notes of honeyed wood, frankincense and myrrh for a complex, multi-layered fragrance. This is a masculine, well-rounded shaving soap. A top quality shaving soap from one of North America's top producers.
