Saponificio Bignoli Parma Violets 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.
A fragrance dedicated to all those who appreciate natural perfumes and who are curious to explore the scents of the past. Built around rose, jasmine, lily of the valley, hyacinth, heliotrope, with mossy and woody notes.
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.

- Now my favourite cream!
Just pure brilliance! Although the smell is not over powering, when I first unscrewed the lid, the smell was utter bliss. I couldn't stop my self from smelling the cream! I just wanted more and more.
Lathering wise (in a hard water area 300+) it's great, no issues what so ever! You only need the smallest amount, so it will last a long time. I will be buying a lot more from Saponifico Bignoli!! For the price you can't say no...
