Description from Old Whippersnappers:
I make this tallow shaving soap with the very finest tallow available, called Wagyu Tallow. This tallow comes from what is considered to be some of the very finest beef available, from Wagyu cattle. You may have heard of it by various other names such as Kobe Beef, Matsusaka Beef, etc. The beef from such cattle are very highly marbleized with fat. I purchase such tallow from a farm in the United States that raises Wagyu cattle.
History: Years ago when many people had farms and raised their own cattle they would make their own Tallow Shaving Soap by rendering beef fat. While the soap had (and still has) a tendency to be difficult to lather, the resulting lather once produced was full of natural rich emollients and was predominately used for moisturizing the skin and helping with eczema. Due to its slipperiness it was also very well suited for shaving.
Some soap makers add only a tiny bit of tallow to their shaving bars and make up the rest of the bar with palm oil and other oil fillers, then pass the bar off as a “Tallow Shaving Bar”. Why do they do this? Because Premium Tallow is expensive! And apparently they do not mind misleading the consumer. I will have none of that!
My Premium 100% Tallow Shaving Bar is made with only Tallow and lye. The lye turns the tallow into soap and glycerin. After the soap making process no lye remains, just a hard white Tallow Soap great for your shaving mug!
My premium quality Shaving Soap Bar is made to fit nicely in your shaving mug. It is a very hard soap so it will take a little more effort than a soft bar of soap to create lather however when you get it going the resulting lather is very rich and slippery! And the bar lasts an incredibly long time due to its hardness. The shave you get from it is amazing.
