Steampunk - A TSN Special Edition Shave Soap

Lee Cantor of Lee's Safety Razors and I have been working with the fine folks at Tabula Rasa for the past few months to develop a Limited Edition shave soap for the Shave Nook.

Tabula Rasa sent us several scents and Steampunk really knocked our socks off! They describe the development of Steampunk as follows:

In the beginning was ... the word: Steampunk. Erik Kormann was browsing through the internet and was fascinated by this movement, which has evolved from a literary phenomenon to a modern subculture. A kind of retro-futurism expressed through the love of art and of the Victorian era and has its roots in the works of Jules Verne and HG Wells. Thus, a diving bell is also the symbol that the graphic artist Jo Zarth transposed for Erik Kormann: A tribute to Verne's novel "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea."

Erik Kormann always wanted to create a fragrance with Atlas cedarwood - and one that is reminiscent of an old library with wood paneling that evokes wanderlust. This desire fitted perfectly to the steampunk theme which also abounds with explorers and adventurers. So all said and done: the idea was born and immediately implemented. The fragrance Steampunk honours its name: it is both nostalgic and hypermodern. Cedarwood blends with a velvety violet to create an intense “Amour Fou”, complemented by glowing Hesperides softly bedded on a gentle, skin-close and warm base of elemi and cashmeran. Erik does not reveal all of the fragrant notes so you can play the explorer and discover or test for yourself and we promise - it's worth it!

It will likely be another 3 to 4 weeks before we have stock but once we do, Steampunk will be available for purchase from both Lee's Safety Razor and Bullgoose Shaving Supplies. That way you can pop a few more items in your cart and take advantage of free shipping.

The base ingredients : Aqua, Stearic Acid, Glycerin, Cocos Nucifera Oil, Argania Spinoza Kernel Oil, Hordeum Vulgare Wax, Butyrospermum Parkii Extract, Mangifera Indica Butter, Potassium Hydroxide, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Borate.

I cannot comment on any scent related ingredients that will be specific to Steampunk ...

Thanks Ravi. I wasn't sure if it was their regular formula or not. Can you tell me if this formulation works well for you as we share similar skin chemistries?

Brian, Tabula Rasa soaps are 'top shelf' in my den : all natural ingredients, combined in a manner that provides superb performance and post shave skin nurturing.

I currently have : vetiver + tangerine, cardamom, olibanum, and tea.

I was excited, until I saw it was coconut oil based. I'll probably have to pass on this one. Sad

As I'm not super familiar with Tabula Rasa can you tell me if this is a cream, soft soap, or hard soap? Thanks.
