Soap Project Update

TLDR:  I'm excited to launch the first longer-run soap Spearhead Shaving Company: Oakmoss & Sandalwood.  This is phase 2 of a 3-phase soapmaking project (details below).  Thanks for all of your support with this project so far! When I started Spearhead Shaving Company a year ago I set a goal for myself - to accomplish something I'm proud of each quarter.  It wasn't exactly a "moonshot" and my goal was intentionally vague.  But it was my effort to hold myself accountable and accomplish something creative outside of my daily job. I already knew my first quarterly objective.  I was working on developing the Spearhead Safety Razor Case, which continues to be my most popular product.  The next quarter I released Shave Notes,...

Experimental Soap Release Log (Reverse Chronological)

20.1C: Citrus, Amber & Musk Formula 20.1C: This formula has proven to be a winner in lather quality, slickness and post shave.  It performs as well, if not better, than the 17.x but is easier to lather and far less thirsty.    This soap is heavily scented relative to some of my previous batches.  Sweet orange, grapefruit and pineapple are front and center.  Amber, nutmeg, musk and vanilla give some warmth and depth to the scent.   Ingredients: Stearic Acid, Water, Tallow, Glycerin, Potassium Hydroxide, Castor Oil, Fragrance, Sodium Hydroxide, Murumuru Butter, Xylitol, Lanolin, Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter, Agave Tequilana Leaf Extract Fragrance:  Citrus, Amber & Musk Net Weight:  4oz  Batch Quantity: 6 soaps 20.1B: Bay Rum (Lightly Scented) Formula 20.1B: This formula has proven to be...

Spearhead Experimental Soap Project

Experimental Shave Soap I am excited to share details about Experimental - a shave soap project from Spearhead Shaving Company.  This is a limited-time / limited-limited scope project to improve the performance of shave soap.  Best of all, these shaving soaps are available at a significant discount: up to 50% less than current artisan shave soap prices.   What's Experimental About the Soap? All Experimental soaps are high-performers, otherwise they don't make the cut.  And at around $8.99 they are punching WELL above their weight class.   It's the fine-tuning that provides infinite variables.  Different fats and butters, ratios of ingredients, humectants, and processes all impact performance.   So every micro-batch (5-10 soaps) of Experimental will have something different about it (i.e. cupuacu butter...

Introducing Shave Notes - Shave of the Day Notebooks

Capturing a "Shave of the Day" is part of the daily ritual for many wet shavers.  Some post religiously to reddit and others take impressive instagram pictures.  But some prefer a decidedly old-school record of their daily shave - pen and paper. I am excited to introduce Shave Notes - a pocket sized wet shaving journal to capture daily shaves.  Shave Notes combines a simple and convenient SOTD template with early wet shaving patent art from the early 20th century.  The result is a pocket ledger tailor-made for traditional wet shaving. SOTD Template Shave Notes is a 32-page pocket notebook measuring 3.5" x 5".  Its size makes it convenient for daily use and small enough to tuck into a toiletry...
