HC&C Havana Breeze shave soap
The best and most accurate way to describe Havana Breeze is that it smells like sticking your head into a humidor. This soap is dedicated to our beloved shaving enthusiast friend Julio, who passed away. He worked in the cigar industry as part of his career.
This soap is made with our new Top Shelf base. It generates a luxurious, creamy lather which delivers exceptional cushion and slickness. The first three, thus most prominent, ingredients are Cocoa Butter, Kokum Butter and Illepe Butter. These premium ingredients cost much more than more common ingredients, though we believe our customers deserve the very best.
This product is part Nashville's Finest brand, as we are based in Metro Nashville. This line is focused on the enthusiast shaving community.
Ingredients: Cocoa Butter, Kokum Butter, Illepe Butter, Stearic Acid, Glycerin, Coconut Oil, Lye (KOH), Reconstituted Aloe Juice, Goat Milk, Myristic Acid, Lye (NaOH), Lanolin, Castor Oil, Bentonite Clay, Fragrance (If applicable), Tussah Silk
Manufactured by Hendrix Classics & Co., Nashville, TN
My first soap from HC&C and it did not disappoint. Soap itself is of medium to hard consistency, not a soft croap like usual for US artisans. But it is easy to load even without blooming the soap before. Lather is very good, slick & protective. In the description it says it smells like a humidor - I have never smelled a humidor, but the scent reminds me of hot cocoa, so a very comforting scent.
