Product Description


NOTE:  If you live in a warm climate, or are ordering during summer months, Abbate Y La Mantia Soaps may arrive slightly deformed and settled to one side of the tin.  The consistency of these soaps are incredibly soft.  This is not considered defective – you just need to spread out the product in the tin.  Example Photo

Don Josè is my grandfather : Giuseppe D’Antoni. The carrier Sicilian importer and grower of coconuts and bananas in 19th century Honduras.

At the time, ice was used to preserve tropical fruits. For this reason, giving him a soap was all too easy.

OLFACTORY : walking around a commercial ship while fresh coconuts and ripe bananas rest in the hold. The field where they come from is there; in Honduras

SENSUAL : a soft and hydrated skin. Fresh and refreshed with wonderful menthol crystals

ACTIVE : Two basic uses:

– Refreshing and analgesic action (topical use): Thanks to the refreshing and analgesic properties (if applied to the skin it attenuates its sensitivity by simulating cooling), it relieves itchy states; is

– Toning action: intense cold is a vasoconstrictor par excellence, it strengthens the walls of the blood vessels that nourish the epidermis.

    This Shaving Soap is up there with the elite.
    The lather is top notch, among the very best I’ve ever had in shaving soaps.
    The scent IMO is distinct and unique. Yes the scent is of coconut, banana and a mild touch of menthol, but it seems to have another dimension in the scent profile which I cannot describe. It’s just absolutely unique…. Period.

    “If you like piña coladas, and getting caught in the rain
    If you’re not into yoga, if you have half a brain
    If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape”
    This is the soap that you’ve looked for, shave with me, and escape.

    So, so, so good.

    AYLM soaps are as good as any I consider elite soaps- Declaration, B&M, Wholly Kaw and a few others. This scent, to my unsophisticated nose, is more bananas than coconut. It has just the right touch of menthol. Performance is superb. A thick, rich lather provides a super slippery, protective shave and great post-shave face feel. I had zero irritation, even in places I typically get it.
