Douglas Smythe's insight:

Our handcrafted, all vegetable shaving soaps offer an incredible lather, slickness, and glide, leaving your skin cleanly shaven, and all day moisturized.

This unique cake will harden with use and is formulated to work well in both hard and soft water situations.

We've included a host of skin feeding ingredients including Kokum Butter, and Avocado, Sweet Almond, Coconut, and Castor Oil. 

Check out our rave review at the Sharpologist!:http://sharpologist.com/2013/05/petal-pushers-kokum-butter-shaving-soaps.html

All of our soap is offered in 3 sizes, and all come in a tin for easy storage. 

The large 5" tin offers an exceptional surface area for brush loading, making wet shaving even more enjoyable!

Hunting In The Wild - Antiquing For Vintage Razors 101 | How to Grow a Moustache

Hunting In The Wild - Antiquing For Vintage Razors 101 | How to Grow a Moustache | Wet Shaving | Scoop.it
Hunting for razors has become so much more than just a hobby. There’s a real sense of accomplishment and triumph you feel when finding that “buried treasure”. Sure, you can easily hop on eBay and shop for razors till the cattle come home, but what I speak of is the thrill of the hunt. A challenge that makes that time and effort spent much more rewarding and memorable. It creates a bond between you and the relic.

Moustache & Blade - Episode 38: Interview with The Q Brothers | How to Grow a Moustache | Wet Shaving | Scoop.it
Ahhh where to begin? This was such a fun interview, we thought it was so nice, we decided to do it twice!

For all of you who are hip to Merz Apothecary, located in Chicago, this is the show for you!
The Q Brothers have really made a name for themselves in the wet shaving world. Not only are they responsible for bringing us Smallflower, Merz Apothecary’s online site and Smallflower TV but also the Great Shave events of the past! This fall will also bring us the opening of their very own men’s grooming store “The Q Brothers”…fittingly enough.

"Wow" is all I can say (inside joke), this interview has been such a long time coming! We have been receiving emails for months from our listeners on Geo, demanding we interview him...yet try as we did, it seemed impossible. It seemed Geo just would give us the time of day. wet shaving podcast, geo fatboy, captains choice,conan o'brienBut finally the stars must have aligned and radio silence was broken! Dramatics aside, Geo was just a phone call away...duh. Anyways, we are very excited to have finally roped him into an interview. For the last 4 years Geo has been making noise in the wet shaving community, a mover and a shaker he certainly is. Not only has Geo taught more folks how to wet shave than most on via his bombastic Youtube presence he is also the owner and proprietor of SHAVE NATION!

Douglas Smythe's insight:

The scent profile of the beach is massive! It's not just one thing like salt or tanning lotion but a blend of ozone, sand, organic matter, an ice cream truck, Bo Derek, a cocktail, even the sounds of Sade's "Smooth Operator" blasting out of the stereo system of the cabana. This was much more than Synergy, this was Synesthesia...and it's all in there!

When Does a Hobby Become an Obsession? | How to Grow a Moustache

When Does a Hobby Become an Obsession? | How to Grow a Moustache | Wet Shaving | Scoop.it
The next day when I awoke with remnants of tomato under my nails and saw the family had not fled in the night, I realised that my wife had accepted my wet shaving obsession and the eccentricities that sometimes come with it. In this case I had read on a The Shave Den, that ketchup was a good way to clean a razor, and I had just received a badly tarnished vintage Gillette "New" safety razor that I had purchased on the bay. My usual cleaning regime hadn't yielded the desired results so I resorted to spreading tomato ketchup all over my newly purchased safety razor.

Wet Shaving: Why Now? | How to Grow a Moustache

Wet Shaving: Why Now? | How to Grow a Moustache | Wet Shaving | Scoop.it
Recently, the major shaving industry has been floundering as margins become almost as narrow as the blades they cram into those molded plastic heads. The major companies, such as  Proctor & Gamble (parent company of Gillette) and Energizer (parent company of Schick), have placed the blame on trends and style fads — namely, “The Hipster.” It’s the reasoning of the major players that the increased love for facial fur has decreased the demand for their products. It’s an interesting ideology, for sure, but I’m fairly certain it’s completely incorrect.
