In a pinch, you can use any of our soap bars to shave with. However, these are the ones Wendell and Luisa like to use the most. In general, the presence of Shea Butter in a bar will mean it might help a little more with shaving, for it is a thicker oil. There are other alternatives we have pointed out as well, if you have oily skin. Please be willing to experiment to find out what works best for you.
