Journeyman Traditional Wet Shave Soap

Whether you prefer a traditional wet shave, use a disposable multi-blade razor that vibrates and has a moisture strip, or you’re somewhere in between, our Traditional Wet Shave Soap will help you get it done right.

Great shave soap must have a stable lather, cushion, protection, and glide.  Though your mileage may vary when it comes to shaving and the soap you use, our puck whips into a dense, creamy lather by brush or by hand.  We all know lather is king when it comes to shaving, but we also want some protection from the blade, and some slip in our soap.  It rinses clean from your face and from the razor allowing more shaves from a single blade.

About Traditional Wet Shave Soap

Our Traditional Wet Shave Soap includes not only cocoa and shea butters, but also glycerin, so we definitely have you covered when it comes to moisture and protection.  And a slick blend of oils gives you the slip and glide you need for a close shave.

Journeyman Scent

Journeyman scent is a blend of cedarwood, lavender, tea tree, rosemary, and lime essential oils. This scent is herbal and fresh with woody undertones.

How to Use

Traditional Wet Shave Soap can be used by vigorously rubbing between your wet hands to develop a lather or by using a shave brush (such as one of our badger shave brushes) to whip a lather in the tin or in a shave bowl.

Once a lather is formed, apply to the face with circular motions to raise the facial hairs, then shave with your preferred razor.


Comes enclosed in a tin for use as a shave bowl and also fits in standard 3-inch shave bowls. Be aware that the tin, if kept wet, will rust and mark your counter top. To prevent this, place the soap in a non-metal shave bowl or place the tin on a water tolerant surface such as one of our Teak Soap Trays.

Each 3.8 oz. puck contains distilled water, stearic acid, palm oil, potassium hydroxide, coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, castor oil, sodium hydroxide, glycerin, avocado oil, cedarwood, patchouli, and amber natural oils.  

Traditional Wet Shave Soap is all-natural and vegan.
