Faux ivory ceramic shaving scuttle. In the days before running water, hot water was placed inside the scuttle for dipping the brush into, and then making lather with the soap that sits in the small top bowl. Today, this good looking authentic, traditional style of scuttle is mostly for decoration and harkens back to yesteryear. It can be functional for smaller bristle brushes and soap pucks if wanting to go old-school, and is a handsome addition to anyone's shave den. Please note: the last image with Em's Glycerin Round has been shaved down to fit in the bowl area. Comes in gift box.

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. Soap or Cream? More info... Also visit the FAQ for more information.

3 oz. regular size glycerin shaving or cleansing round in your choice of unscented or with our Em's essential oil blend is great for use with a shaving brush, and is the refill size for our shaving sets (or use your own container). 2 3/4" approx. diameter. Enriched with extra glycerin. Can be used for a gentle face or body cleansing too! No artificial colors or fragrance for sensitive skin. What could be more convenient. 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. Glycerine Soap Refills
