Product Description

It is always darkest just before the day dawneth – Thomas Fuller.

Scent to inspire hope under adverse circumstances. “Remember,” they say, “that the darkest hour of all is the hour before day.”

Cuero Oscuro or Dark Leather – A dark and very masculine scent for Fall and Winter.  This scent is not floral, fruity or powdery.  Leathery and smoky.  A radical departure from our other scents.  In developing this scent, we saw a fork in the road and we took it.  Off the beaten path. Off to an adventure that took us to unexplored olfactory journey.

A masterful blend of leather, vetiver, cedarwood, tobacco, patchouli, oakmoss and coffee to top it off. Think of rawhide leather scent or boots.

Warning: Discontinue use if there is a reaction or if irritation occurs.


Description: Made with high quality ingredients including Donkey Milk, Castor Oil, Kokum Butter, Cocoa Butter, and Shea Butter for added post shave benefits. Vegan does not contain Donkey Milk.  Vegan includes Soybean Glycerides and Shea Butter Unsaponifiables with Kokum Butter, Cocoa Butter, and Shea Butter.  Hops Extract is incorporated into the formulation as a soothing natural extract for relief of skin inflammation and skin redness.

Please refer the ingredients for more information.

Result: Produces a cushiony and protective lather with glide and consistency. Provides glide and cushion for more than one pass – With the Grain (WTG), Across the Grain (XTG) and Against the Grain (ATG). Works well with or without a pre-shave preparation.

It’s a soft soap and less chalky and can be mashed into a cup or a shaving mug for loading of the brush. The soap is slick and the enables the razor to glide on your face or other shaving area. The cushiony lather provides protection for the skin from the sharp blade or razor while shaving. It can be lathered using palm, bowl or face lather after loading the brush.

    I was pretty disappointed with the sample I bought. On the positive side, the soap is very slick and my face felt very soft after. Unfortunately each of my three shaves left me feeling nicked and scraped. Using the same blade (Astra SP) and razor (Razorock Mamba) on the days before and after this soap, I had great, comfortable shaves with Zingari explorer and Declaration GLS. The Cuero either irritated my skin or just didn’t give much cushion.

    More disappointing (and subjective) was the scent. I’ve tried a couple of leather soaps that have a sharpness that I just can’t abide. It’s reminiscent of horseradish in cocktail sauce, and it overwhelms the good characteristics of the scent.

    This one’s not for me, sorry.
