Saponificio Bignoli Blackberry & Moss Shaving Soap is a traditional Italian style shaving soap produced by three generations of family soap makers.
The 175g of soap is presented in an attractive screw top container and is made in the traditional Italian soft soap/hard cream style.
The soap boasts a wonderful fragrance of blackberry and moss, like a ripe blackberry bush in summertime
Grandpa Carlo’s original antique soap making recipe was rediscovered in recent years alongside the desire to produce a traditional shaving soap. Today, the soaps are made using the same method and passion, but with an updated formulation of the most sought-after ingredients which are natural, delicate and certified. The final result is a product that only the tradition of an artisanal soap factory can create. A lavish, creamy shaving soap that enhances the wet shaving experience. It can either be lathered with a brush in a shaving bowl or directly on the face where it softens the hair and lubricates the skin for an effortless shave, leaving the skin well moisturised and smooth to the touch.
The shaving soaps contain a special oil made from rice - a natural local ingredient and strongly connected the heritage of the area - which soothes and whose formidable emollient properties are easily absorbed. The presence of this ingredient softens the skin and facilitates a gentle gliding movement of the razor, ensuring a smooth, clean shave and enduring silky soft skin.

- Great soap, cool lather
This soap has a sweet smell, it's not quite delicate but it's not overpowering. It creates a dense lather, which has the odd property of feeling cooler compared to the lathers of my other soaps. Nonetheless, it provides a smooth shave, and the metal tin makes it easy to travel with

- Don’t eat it.
The scent of summer blackberries emanates with beautiful pungency on opening the nicely understated packaging. Of course it could easily be mistaken for yoghurt given this and it’s consistency but once you get over the temptation to stick a spoon in it and get to work, the soap reveals its true purpose. The lather is superb, the slickness too and it renders an altogether delicious shaving experience. Highly recommended..
