Product Description

Special Edition Shaving Soap made to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of Saponificio Varesino. This shaving soap is different from the previous three we made (Aromatic Fern, Dolomiti, Manna di Sicilia), since the raw materials have been measured and balanced in a very different way.

In addition to the previous formulation “Beta 4.0”, that has been reworked, we added the butter of illipe, which prevents and combats skin dryness giving long lasting hydration and bringing back its own elasticity. We added Macadamia oil, known to have a natural sun protection factor (SPF). In addition to protecting the skin from the sun, it moisturises and protects.

A specially designed formulation to ensure extremely comfortable shaves and a fabulous post shave. All the above characteristics are the explanation of the name Beta 4.1
The fragrance is a fresh cologne, aquatic, floral and aromatic, with woody base note and amber.

Below we explore the characteristics of the soap:
• 100% vegetable (except fragrance)
• NO palm oil (forest protection)
• NO preservatives / chelators / antioxidants of chemical origin
• NO petroleum, mineral oils, dyes, parabens

A rich formula in natural active ingredients, whose properties (softening, emollient, moisturizing, rejuvenating of the skin barrier, firming, lubricant, soothing, anti-inflammatory, toning) will bestow unique shaving experience.

Usage advice
Our formulations contain active ingredients that, in order to give the best performance, need to solubilize and/or melt. The maximum performance can be obtained in this way:
cover the soap surface with a thin veil of hot water for few minutes. The quantity of water needed may vary depending on your water hardness and the rate of humidity of the soap, a correct quantity is when the whole soap surface is covered by water,
soak a badger shaving brush (being it the best performer when it comes to water absorbing),
rinse it well and then pour the thin veil of water that bloomed the soap on the knot, and then start loading (20-30 seconds),
face/bowl lather without adding water.
Not tested on animals

    I love this soap. It performs excellent and gives a wonderful post shave fell. Also the scent is great! Very fresh and clean. The girls love this scent. I was getting sick and tired of mainly tobacco and other nasty scents being pushed and I hated to smell like a fruit or candy or spice. This soap is outstanding. You can’t go wrong with it.

    This is my very favorite shaving soap company. I own all their soaps and all are excellent.

    I have been using Saponificio Varesino body soaps for a lot longer than I’ve been wet shaving so I was aware they made good soap. I wasn’t disappointed when i bought this either, it’s a serious performer. I’ll be honest and say it wasn’t my favourite scent at the start but it has definitely grown on me. The packaging is first rate and I love the hard puck, it works out to be very good value for money. I would always keep a SV soap in my den.

    Fantastic italian soap, fresh scent and easy to load (not very thirsty btw).
    The scent is quite complex and get’s better & better for me, so I also got the matching Aftershave now.

    Fantastic hard soap with superiour slickness, protection and a wonderful scent.

    Scent is refined, fresh and has a “European” complexity to it 😉
    In my view pairable and similar to the Chanel Allure Homme Sport fragrance.

    70th Anniversary and Cosmo I find to have the best performance in the SP range to this day.
