Fragrance Free Shaving Bar - 95g

We know beards are big (and bushy) right now, but good old-fashioned shaving never went away. These clever Shaving Bars soften your beard and nourishes your skin both at the same time.
Better still, if you don’t have a bowl and brush to hand, you can still whip up a very respectable lather between your hands – after a shower or bath is best.
Each Shaving bar is handmade with castor oil, olive oil, coconut oil, kaolin clay and soy wax.
You won’t find even the smallest smidgen of palm oil, preservatives or sulphates in any of our soaps; all we add is a feel-good factor.
Our plastic-free boxes are recycled and recyclable, and we’re also registered with The Vegan Society and Cruelty-Free International. We’ve even earned a ‘Best’ rating with Ethical Consumer, so you can enjoy a spotlessly clean conscience.

Who are Friendly?
Based just up the road in Hebden Bridge, Friendly soap is made by locals with a passion for the environment.
Their ranges contain no animal products or by-products and have never been tested on animals, which means they've really earned their registration with Cruelty free International and The Vegan Society. The ancient cold-process method means their soap is totally biodegradable and free from by-products too, so there’s literally no waste.
In terms of energy use, they pour, cut, stamp and pack their soaps by hand in the UK, so they’re talking lots of calories but a small carbon footprint. Their packaging is pretty special too, because it’s made from materials that are 100% recycled as well as recyclable. Plastic doesn’t get a look in, and their parcels for delivery use brown paper tape. Heck, they even use poppy seeds and hemp bran instead of microbeads.
A million miles from conventional detergents, they don’t use harmful preservatives or foaming agents because there’s no real need for SLS or Parabens. The silky-smooth lather produced by their soaps is all down to careful ingredient choice and the cold-process method of making them. What about their Shea butter? Bought from a women’s worker cooperative in Ghana. Coconut oil? Taken from coconuts guaranteed not to be harvested by slave monkeys.
So you can be comforted by the fact that not only is this soap amazing quality and good for the planet, but locally made.
