I have been in the wet shaving business for nearly 12 years and, it takes a lot for a product to really grab my attention. I can honestly say that Luna Shaving Soaps are among the best vegetable based artisan soaps that I have ever used.
Luna soaps have been receiving high praise in Europe for several years but until now, they were unavailable (and thus relatively unknown) in the United States. Elena Escamilla, the artisan behind the brand, uses 100% natural ingredients including high quality essential oils, plants, aqueous extracts, macerations, vegetable oils, and tinctures to make the soaps. All of the soaps are made in small batches to preserve freshness. As an added bonus, all of the products made by Luna Cosmetics use sustainable ingredients and none of the products are tested on animals.
While being environmentally friendly is nice, it would not matter if the performance is lacking. You can put those fears to rest. These soaps lather easily and produce an extremely slick lather that has excellent skin conditioning qualities. Scents are extremely subjective but, all three scents are on the mild side especially when lathered.
