Product Description

Cosmo shaving soap represents our latest evolution in the Beta formulations and a big step towards slickness and post shave properties enhancement, hence the definition “beta 4.2”.

The renewed formulation, different from the previous ones we made, and the addition of larch extract (Genus Larix Extract), provide an excellent post shave and an overall amazing shave experience.

The larch extract is also able to reduce the trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL), thus helping those skin types that tend to dryness.

We also added a new vegetal compound, based on castor oil, that gives a lubricating action and helps the razor mechanical action.

The aluminum container is anthracite coloured, enriched with a metallic label in antique brass.

Other important features of Cosmo Shaving Soap are:

  • 100% Vegetable (except from the fragrance)
  • no palm oil
  • no preservatives/chelating agents/anti-oxidants of chemical origin
  • no petroleum derivatives, no mineral oils, no colouring agents, no
  • parabens
  • no EDTA – SLS – BHT – SLES – PEG

Usage Advice

Saponificio Varesino’s formulations contain active ingredients that, in order to obtain the best perfomance, 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. Soak a badger shaving brush, rinse it well and then pour the thin veil of water that bloomed the soap on the brush, and then start loading (20-30 seconds), face or bowl lather without adding water.

    yeah agree with above – the perfume is addictive, performance superlative, lasts for ever

    This is a great performing hard soap that produces mountains of very slick lather without much effort. I can only compare the new 4.2 formula to SV beta 4.1 and didn’t notice any big difference. The scent is unique and very pleasing if you like leathery scent w/ a hint of coffee. The scent is very long-lasting, however, and almost overpowers the AS. All around, a highly recommended soap that justifies the premium pricing.

    One of my favorites.The aroma is mild but persistent.After soap+AS Cosmo,I never wear perfume-it would have been superfluous.

    Let me start by saying that I am a fan of all the SV soaps I have tried so far, and notice little difference between formulas. Cosmo has a scent that is WAY different from other SV scents, it is a dark, coffee, sandalwood, amber type of scent that reminds me a bit of Barrister & Mann Leviathan. Not exactly the same, but in the same dark scent category. The puck is hard as a rock and makes a terrific lather. Very slick and plenty of cushion, great post shave moisturizing as well. The Cosmo is a bit more expensive than the others, but the scent is one of a kind and the puck should last a very long time. The scent is not for everyone but I find myself sniffing the tin in between shaves, very well made scent and a great shaving soap formula.
