The soap will be in early next week, probably on Monday, and I can't ship until a day after I receive it whatever day it arrives, but I can take orders now. The website is set up for it.

As with any soap, I can also ship it overseas if your country allows it in.

Frostbite is one of my all time favorite aftershaves. I can't resist trying the soap. Order placed!

There will be no wait for shipping. The first box of soaps came in today; so orders placed this weekend will ship on Monday.

I just finished putting your orders together gents. Whether or not the USPS gent shows up on Monday they will ship even if I have to drive into town to get it done. Unless they close the post office. They did that during the blizzard and no postal business got done at all.

Brian, I'm getting a lot of (jealous) questions regarding EU availability.  Any EU/UK stockists for any of your soaps/aftershaves?

Not yet. I'm trying. I'm open to suggestions if you have any.

I can't send the after the shave products to individuals because it's not cost effective since it can't go USPS, but I can send the soaps to individuals via the post.

Not many.  The owners of the first two are active in the UK forums.  Shaving Station already carries many US artisans.

Please, try the vendors in Barbear Clássico Portuguese Forum.
It would be good to portuguese people.

I had a reply from one of them and they clued me in as to the requirements. I'll just be generous and say that after jumping through hoops about my formulas and insuring it's in a spot where someone can have access to it on my end, they want me to upload it to a bureaucrat somewhere in Tannu-Tuva where anything can happen to it. So it's a non starter for me. Heck, I wouldn't play the IRSs games, so I'm certainly not going to play the games of some bureaucrat across the pond. I hope the bureaucrat gets a case of bad skin. :-)

In the meantime enterprising gents with a brain have access to as much of it as they want right now, and Italian Barber should have it eventually.

Yikes!  Sorry I said anything now.  
The EU has some funny ideas on how soap should be made.  Darron (of Wickham soaps) said that he had a horrible time getting the balance right to pass the "toxicologist tests" for the EU market.
Don't change a thing!  Your soap is "Awesomeness in a jar".

No, no, it was quite alright. I'd heard rumors regarding this protectionist crap they had put into place but I hadn't seen the requirements. BTW, it's not just soaps, it's cosmetics in general. It's a two way street though.

Thanks for the kind words. I'll just need to make more products for our market and for the Asian market.

Folks should have begun receiving their soaps today.

I handed the orders off to the shipper when I said I would in the replied to emails, but obviously I overloaded their donkey and they didn't get processed until early morning on Tuesday.

If you haven't received your package yet, please PM me for the tracking number so that we can figure where it is and when it will arrive. Please check your incoming first.

Brian, I know you have the Super Combo Pack, but have you considered a simpler Soap + Aftershave pack? Could be interesting. Smile
