Description of Shaving Soap:
Van Yulay makes a croap shaving soap, that is neither a cream or a hard puck, but in between.
Van Yulay shave soap whips up into a yogurt like, creamy lather in just a few minutes. Formulated with a superior, protective cushion, we make each soap with your skin mind. With that said, we incorporate quality, vitamin enriched, oils and butters, chosen specifically to hydrate your skin.
“Leaving your skin better than when we first met.”
How to use:
Soak your shave brush in a bowl or cup filled with hot water for a few minutes before your shave. Apply a warm, damp towel to your face (or splash face with warm water) to prep your face for shaving. Apply another hot towel to your face for a few seconds. After the brush has soaked, gently squeeze out excess water, still leaving the brush mostly wet. Apply the brush to the soap in fast, repeated circular motions to coat the brush bristles well. Shave and rinse face thoroughly with cool water. For an optimal experience, finish with Van Yulay After Shave Splash then followed After Shave Balm by Van Yulay.
Shaving Soap Contents:
· Sea Buckthorn – promotes skin hydration, elasticity, and skin regeneration, and even helps treat and prevent acne. Sea buckthorn oil may also be beneficial for rosacea, a chronic inflammatory condition that causes small red bumps on the face.
· Sea Clay – Clay is widely used in spas and it works by helping remove the dead skin cells and promoting circulation in the healthy new skin cells below the epidermis. In shave soap it also increases glide.
· Sea Salt – Increased circulation, antiseptic effects, soft skin without a greasy feel and reduction in fluid retention are just some of the additional benefits of sea salt for the skin. Since sea salt does not go through the same manufacturing processes as table salt, the minerals from the sea remain, giving sea salts different coloring depending on where they are from. Many of these minerals also provide nutrients and benefits to the skin.
· Meadow Foam – When used in shave soap it is known to protect the skin from ultraviolet rays which can cause skin diseases especially in the case of prolonged exposure. As it is readily absorbed by the skin, it doesn’t give the greasy feeling when applied onto the skin. It moisturizes skin as well as protects it from being dehydrated. This is because, unlike water, Meadow Foam oil does not evaporate when exposed to the elements. This quality makes it qualify as an ingredient for products that are aimed at preventing acne. It also makes it easier for your skin to “breathe” by removing the blockages in the pores. Oil from Meadow Foam seed is mild; hence, it produces the same benefit even if you have sensitive skin.

This stuff is absolutely amazing, the performance on the soap is second to none. And the scent of this soap is AWESOME, I need tons of the soap bars in this scent now. Part of my regular shave routine…
Poseidon is a great oceanic scent that is very authentic! Salt, mist, waves, wind, and all. This one took me by surprise at first and I love it more and more every shave. It has a sharp scent of sea water off the top of the puck that blends really well into the lather to smooth out.
I really like this soap. If this is what ylang-ylang smells like, I’m for it! It lathers easily and provides plenty of glide for my razor. My face is left feeling comfortably soft and smooth.
