Denali Seasonal Tallow Shaving Soap
What does it smell of? Denali is inspired by what is reportedly the coldest mountain on the planet, namely its North American namesake. It's a minty affair opening with notes of peppermint before being quickly followed by a combination of stimulating mentha piperita derived menthol crystals, and the clean, fresh scent of blue gum eucalyptus and white camphor.
We mean it when we say that it's a shave that's fantastically, creepingly and sensory shudderingly cold.
It really sharpens the senses and invigorates wonderfully and is most definitely a shave you'll want if you feel the need for a pick-me-up. It's also great hangover cure (!) and lends itself to the hotter months.
In terms of scent strength we place Denali towards the lighter side of middle.
Notice: Denali is a mentholated soap and as such will have a significant cooling effect on the skin. By agreeing to buy this soap you are accepting full responsibility and indemnify Phoenix and Beau from any unwanted effects, e.g. acute sensitisation that it might cause or complaint thereof.
Lather note & soap care: By introducing menthol crystals to our base soap formula we note that the lathers plasticity increases and as such you might wish to use a touch more water. Also, we have found that warm to hot water works best for lather building.
If you're feeling particularly brave why not enjoy a shave where the only warm water you use is to build your lather. Cold water passes and a post shave splash will accentuate the freeze many fold!
To prolong the life of your Denali, post shave, please be sure to rinse your soap with cold water, invert (without the lid on) and allow to dry overnight).
Attention to detail: Our enterprise is an intimate family operation where we focus on the detail, quality and aesthetic of our products and we focus on you, our customer. An example is how we use our own hands to blend each essential oil accord. These are carefully meted out recipes that are made one batch at a time and added to the just made soap. N.b. Our soap is a thirsty beast. For a better understanding please take a moment and watch my guide on how to lather our soap.
Ingredients: Stearic acid, beef tallow, castor oil, vegetable glycerin, unrefined shea butter, lanolin, distilled water, organic coconut milk, tussah silk, allantoin, vitamin-e, safflower oil, essential oils, menthol crystals and potassium hydroxide.
Ottimo prodotto, scivola divinamente e lascia la pelle rilassata doponla rasatura. Uniche pecche Denali è una menta piuttosto anonima come profumo (Albion ha più carattere) e se si vogliono veri benefici da questi saponi vanno caricati generosamente.
Uno dei saponi migliori in assoluto. Fresco ma non troppo, profumo garbato e non sintetico, scivoloso e protettivo ai massimi livelli. Un must.
Great soap, great scent and a great lather. This gives a nice cool refreshing feeling on a hot day. Definitely recommend 10/10
As always, a fine product from Kerry and co. Despatched on time, too. This soap provides a tremendous, cushioning, slick lather; which is very protective. It’s also refreshingly cool. Try Floïd’s Menthol, Proraso Green or (if you’re really brave) Fine’s Snake Bite. Your face will be cool, to say the least!
