Introducing our new silk tallow base with our bestselling Ghost Town Barber Fragrance.
While we still stand behind our OG base 100% and do not currently have plans to discontinue it, it has been five years since it was released and it was time to create a more modern shaving soap formula.
We tested ingredient after ingredient racking up fifty-six test batches before we settled on this one. The main secret is a massive amount of silk hydrolysate which is a very conditioning, natural, film-forming agent which is used in a lot of anti-aging creams (anti-aging statement not evaluated by the FDA, Yaya, yadda, etc).
Some of my testers reported feeling a skin tightening sensation - be aware that this is the film left by the silk hydrolysate.
For best results, load soaking wet brush for 40 seconds in the tub, then build lather on wet face for an additional minute.

Tub is oversized to allow for easy loading of your shaving brush.
It wasn't what I expected, I had to use a lot of soap to get a decent lather and the scent /aroma was very faint . I won't be buying this product again
This is good but I like the original formula better.
I’ve been using this soap for the past four days. The lather it generates is terrific. It is thick and very slick which provides great protection. It does require a little more water than other soaps I’ve used in the past but that’s not a problem. What’s the drawback? The scent is what is preventing me from giving this a five star rating. This does have a barbershop smell to it when it’s dry. But when lathered up, it takes on a more pronounced smell of leather and smoke which I do not care for. If you like that scent then this will probably appeal to you.
I used this soap for the very first time along with the balm and aftershave and all I can say is that it’s great. The soap is incredibly slick and the post shave feeling is excellent. My face has felt great all day and it’s been hours since I shaved.
I just shave had my first shave with the new formula and its really good I can still feel the slickness a day after I only shave with the old formula from the sample container it was good but the new formula makes it give a 10 out of a 10
