Authentic Barber Shaving Soap, Cooper & French

There was a time when the barbershop was at the center of a city’s commercial hub – a simpler time when tangible things like the service of a clean shave meant a lot. Authentic Barber is a scent and experience that affirms that idea.

There is no school like the old school – and traditional scents and nostalgic feel combine to take you to a simpler time and place. But simple doesn’t mean unsophisticated; some of the best things in life remain unchanged.

In its day, the busy main street outside of the barbershop reminded you that innovation and improvements are constant. You can recreate this pleasant memory in your own home and get that full-service feel. We call it Authentic Barbershop because it reminds us of what using only the finest ingredients is all about. It’s also a juxtaposition of the great things that innovation and technology can bring about - a blend of history, tradition, and modern refinement.

The beauty of Authentic Barber soap, based on proven traditional ingredients like tallow and stearic acid, is how it forms a lather without equal. It supports the shaving experience with a mild, rejuvenating scent profile. It’s a self-assured blend of scents that can take you away to a different time and place. This shave soap smells like a fine establishment that gentlemen frequent to get the best service in town. It prioritizes clean, cool, and sweet Bay Rum that flutters on the nose, while the fresh powdery sandalwood offers a woody, floral blend; the strong earthy muskiness of patchouli anchors this gorgeous scent.

It’s simple, refined, nostalgic, and refreshing. It takes you to a place only a proper wet shave can.

How to Apply - In 4 Easy Steps

  1. First, either wet or soak your brush. If your shave brush is made of synthetic material, simply wet your brush in warm water. If you’re a fan of badger, boar, or horsehair be sure to soak your brush for at least a few minutes in warm water. Oh, and don’t forget to get rid of excess water. You don’t want to drip!
  2. Next, swirl your shave brush in your soap container for a minimum of 20 seconds. You want your brush to be fully covered in soap. The goal is to achieve a paste-like consistency.
  3. Wet the area of your skin that needs shaving.
  4. Lastly, transfer your soap to your skin. The best way to do this is by using a scrubbing motion until your skin is covered with a full lather. It’s ok to add a small amount of water every now and then to your brush. This will help with coverage.
