I saw it pop up at a supply places new products page but I've never heard of it before.

Pretty damn expensive. $30 for 3.4 oz.
Same price as Trumpers, with half the product.

It seems pricey and I haven't tried it myself. I've read of a number of people having difficulty achieving good lather, but I have no idea what their experience levels are...

I have the shaving cream (as well as some face cleanser, facial scrub, and moisturizer). The moisturizer is fantastic, and I do like the cleanser and scrub as well.

All of the products are very high quality and one can tell the ingredients are top-notch. That said, I did not have good results with the shaving cream. Bowl lathering with a brush, I was able to whip up a nice lather, but I had issues with the lather not lasting very long. By the time I finished my first pass, it had all but disappeared. It has good lubrication and moisturizing properties, but I had to keep "refreshing" the lather throughout the shave.

Not to say that it is bad, just different from the "normal" shaving cream experience I'm used to with other top-shelf creams.

I would personally steer clear of this one based on the ingredients list alone.

The first ingredient is water. The second ingredient is a detergent/foaming agent.

I'm done right there. I prefer to use software that does not contain detergents/foaming agents.

Sounds like a bunch of chemicals to me. I prefer to stick to the more natural, "small list of ingredients that you can pronounce" kind of soaps - with the exception of two or three big name producers that I've had in my rotation since I started. That's not to say that's not to say that this stuff isn't capable of producing good lather; it very well might be awesome. I just prefer, personally, more natural products.
