Experimental is a shaving soap project rather than a product. Each soap is handmade in micro-batch quantities of around 5 tubs. The batches represent a change in formula - sometimes large and sometimes small. All Experimental soaps are tested for performance and only those with great performance are released.
We are proud of the performance of all Experimental soaps. We know that there are several unknowns when buying one of these soaps so they are priced accordingly. At $8.99 these soaps are punching WELL above their weight class!
Formula 17.2 is an effort to further improve the post-shave feel of formula 17.1. The volume of plant butters has increased along with the addition of jojoba oil. 17.2 has the same thick, dense and stable lather of formula 17.1 with a richer and smoother feel.
The lanolin and cupuacu butter make this soap capable of holding a tremendous amount of water. The lather performs well at any level of hydration but the slickness especially shines when it is fully hydrated.
This batch was a very short run (4 soaps). The last batch with this fragrance sold out quickly so I made a small batch for a customer who wanted one. The fragrance is much more pronounced in this batch with notes of bergamot, apple, pineapple rose, birch, jasmine, patchouli, oakmoss, musk, and vanilla
