Soaps & Creams
Here at The English Shaving Company, we delight in bringing you the best shaving soaps and creams from around the world.
Perhaps the most rapidly growing section on the site, we’re regularly adding shaving soaps and shaving creams and are always on the lookout for new and interesting shaving products.
A good number of the shaving soaps and creams we stock are made in Britain by dedicated artisans – check out Phoenix & Beau, Wickham Soap Company, Nanny’s Silly Soaps and the Obsessive Soap Perfectionist for shaving soaps made by hand in the UK.
We’ve also got a strong presence from Italy – a country with a rich shaving history and shaving soaps and creams to match. These often come in the traditional ‘croap’ style – somewhere between a hard cream and a soft soap. From the saffron infused offerings from Abbate y La Mantia and the Milan institution of Antica Barbieria Colla, to the popular, characterful stylings of Tcheon Fung Sing and rich luxury of PannaCrema - we’ve got Italian shaving soaps to match all styles and tastes.
Our world tour of shaving creams doesn’t stop there, as we hop across the channel to bring you the best of French shaving. La Savonniere du Moulin make their shaving soap with organic milk taken from the well-loved donkeys who graze around their picturesque mill. Le Pere Lucien present their wonderful shaving soaps with typical rustique French charm.
With more shaving soaps and creams from Germany, Austria, Spain, the USA, Belgium, Ireland, Greece, Sweden, Portugal, Finland, the Netherlands and other countries besides, we may be called The English Shaving Company, but our offerings are truly international!
See what other wet shavers have to say about the shaving creams and soaps we sell – the shaving soap reviews on the product page are a great place to find the opinions of others and inform your decision.
Another great place for more information on shaving soaps and creams is our blog – take a look at Shaving Cream (what does it do?) for a more in depth look at the benefits of a proper shaving cream, or at some of our favourite creams here.
All shaving soaps require a shaving brush for use, and while we would also recommend one for use with shaving cream to achieve the best results, some can be applied directly with the fingers.
Seek out our aftershave selection to find a complimentary fragrance to your favourite soap or cream.
Whatever you go for, experimenting with shaving soaps and creams is perhaps the most fun aspect of wet shaving – don’t be afraid to experiment and enjoy!
