That's right, we said "beer soap." There are enough local craft breweries in the Lower St. Lawrence and Gaspésie regions for you to be familiar with the concept of "beer" ;-) but you're probably more familiar with drinking it than as an ingredient in soap.
Truth is, it's a really valuable ingredient for soap-making. It adds a dimension of softness and smoothness that leaves your skin feeling super soft, fresh and hydrated. When integrated in a soap, beer makes it even foamier and creamy, which is exactly why we use it in our shaving soap - so that your razor blade can glide smoothly across the skin without dragging or catching, leaving you with a close, smooth shave.
Beer is rich in mineral salts, so including beer in soap means that our soaps are also rich in mineral salts!
Indeed, beer contains, potassium and vitamin B and therefore has great moisturizing properties. It is also very rich in antioxidants - contained in hops and malt - which will soothe razor-irritated skin. It also contains a lot of proteins and sugars, which help create a fantastic foam, making it a perfect shaving soap.
Don't worry, this guilt-free beer comes without a hangover! In fact, the eucalyptus and mint fragrance will leave you feeling refreshed, in addition to soothing your skin. Enjoy without moderation!
