Use this acrylic bowl to hold Em's glycerin shaving rounds or to pre-whip up shaving cream. This is a palm bowl so you can hold the soap without it sliding out of your hand, not to prevent any foam from spilling over the bowl while creating shaving lather. Select from black, white or clear. Comes in gift box.

~ Bowl is 3 1/2" at the outer top rim, with the total bowl height of approximately 1 3/4". Please note: soap shades can vary from batch to batch due to the essential oils used in the blend and other factors of nature, which is normal. Refills

Ingredients: Cocos Nucifera (Coconut Oil), Elaesis Sp. (Palm Oil), Ricinus Communis (Castor Oil), Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower Oil), Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Purified Aqua (Water), Sodium Hydroxide, Sorbitol, Sorbitan Oleate, and Vitamin E from Glycine Soja (Soybean) and essential oils as applicable. (It is the reaction of Sodium Hydroxide with oil and liquid that makes soap.)

Why does Em's promote glycerin soap? Our glycerin soap is made using only the finest ingredients and essential oils for a masculine scent and beneficial for skin care. It lathers well and provides a nice shave while rinsing clean. We have had a lot of positive comments on this soap formulated for all skin types, especially sensitive skin. Not only is it a good shaving soap, you can bathe and shower with it too!

To use a shaving brush: Moisten area to be shaved with warm water to soften hairs, thoroughly wet brush, shake off some excess water if necessary, rotate and lather the bristle tips over shaving soap (like stirring a cup of coffee, for example) to coat with top part of the brush head with lather, then apply in a back and forth and slightly circular motion to the shaving area - the lather is further created on your face.

It's all about the water - too much and you get bubble water, too little and you get dry film and insufficient lather. Generally speaking, it is not a thick interfering foam like what is found in store brand shaving canisters, but rather a layer that allows the razor to slide along the face without too much foam to get in the way of a close shave. You can control the amount of lather created by how much water remains in the brush, how much soap or cream is applied to the bristles and the scrubbing motion used on the shaving area. Experiment and you will find what works best for you. Visit the FAQ for more information.

    Keeps soap from sliding from my hand

    Nothing fancy here. Just a low cost way to hold Em's shaving round (the one I use anyway) for face lathering by holding the bowl in my hand. Keeps the soap from sliding around while I soap-up the brush. Works great for what it is.

    A bit small

    Posted by J seligman on Sep 11th 2012

    I like the black color and weight of this bowl. i do think its a bit small and when i swirl the brush around, the cream usually goes up and over the edges. i would consider a larger bowl next time around.
