Ever try to decipher what goes into most shaving foams and gels? You need a friend with a PhD in chemistry to explain the ingredients. But not with products from Napa Soap Company. The contents of their handmade shaving soaps sound good enough to eat.
Sheila Rockwood grew up in the Napa Valley and set out to create skincare products that use local resources from this bountiful region. Her shaving soaps for men (lots of women also use them) are made with natural ingredients such as grapeseed oil, wine, honey, aloe vera and french clay to keep skin smooth and nourished.
They’re economical, too. One shaving mug contains up to a year’s supply of shaving soap, plus it comes with a classic barber shop-style brush. Imagine how many cans of regular shaving cream you won’t have to buy—and send to the landfill when they’re empty. When Napa Soap’s shaving supply is gone, you can reuse the container (you can choose either a traditional ceramic mug or an old-school enameled mug).
Napa Valley’s better-known export is wine, but after shaving with these, you’ll fall in love with the region’s less famous but equally delectable product.
