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

    Handy Tub

    Posted by Kenny on Nov 8th 2020

    This is a great product that is the same on the first day and the last. I usually by an 8oz tub and it will last me a year. With a hot shaving brush lathering this up, it knocks down the nubs and leaves you crying for more.

    Using for years

    Posted by Les Douglas on Feb 18th 2014

    I have been using the large tub of glycerin shaving soap for years (bay rum or lavender) and love the stuff. I have tried cheaper soaps and more expensive creams but have never found a product that stacks up to the quality of the large blue tub of glycerin soap sold by Em's Place. It lathers well, smells grrrrreat, shaves close and rinses clean. What else could you ask for? It helps to make shaving one of those daily little pleasures.

    Great Soap

    This is the first soap I've used from Em's. I should have tried it sooner. Very nice lather and the scent is not too overwhelming as some others tend to be.
