Authentic Barber Shaving Soap, Cooper & French

There was a time when the barbershop was the epicenter of a city's commercial district - a simpler era when the service of a clean shave was highly valued. Authentic Barber is a scent and experience that pays homage to this idea.

There is no substitute for the old school - traditional scents and a nostalgic feel transport you to a simpler time and place. But simple doesn't mean unsophisticated; some of the best things in life remain unchanged.

The bustling main street outside of the barbershop was a reminder that innovation and progress are inevitable. You can recreate this pleasant memory in your home and get that full-service feel. We call it Authentic Barbershop because it reminds us of the importance of using only the finest ingredients. It's also a perfect blend of history, tradition, and modern refinement.

The beauty of Authentic Barber soap, based on proven traditional ingredients like tallow and stearic acid, is its ability to create a lather like no other. It enhances the shaving experience with a mild, invigorating scent profile. It's a confident 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 tantalizes the nose, while the fresh powdery sandalwood offers a woody, floral blend; the strong earthy muskiness of patchouli anchors this captivating scent.

It’s simple, refined, nostalgic, and refreshing. It takes you to a place only a proper wet shave can - a place of timeless tradition and modern refinement.

How to Apply - In 4 Easy Steps

  1. First, either wet or soak your brush. If your shave brush is made of synthetic material, wet your brush in warm water. If you’re a badger, boar, or horsehair fan, 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.
