I'm on the mailing list for Wet Shaving Products.  WSP's most recent email indicated that they are close to releasing an artisan shaving cream.

I've wondered why there are numerous artisan shaving soaps, but  no artisan creams that I'm aware of.  I'd be interested in learning of any artisan creams out there.  If there are, I imagine there are far fewer than artisan soaps.  My guess is that perhaps it's more difficult to make shaving cream than shaving soap.

WSP's soaps are good performers, and the addition of an artisan cream should be interesting.

I've used a few of WSP's soap in the Rustic line. I find them good performers. I guess I've never thought about there being little to no artisan creams. I'm racking my brain trying to think of one I've used. I can't. I'd like to see if anyone can mention one. I'm sure I've overlooked one.

Gingers Garden makes shaving cream which I hear is pretty good. There is an Al's Shaving cream as well. I tried the latter of these and was underwhelmed by them after getting a fleet of samples.

I'm not a big cream fan but find Queen Charlotte Soaps has a great line of creams. Definitely worth checking out!

stone cottage makes a line of shaving creams that are quite good.  link removed

i'm surprised you were not impressed with al's, generally gets very good reviews.  i find it a very slick cream that lathers easily with great lather.

Auguri is also my favorite, with Saigon second.

As far as Al's, I tried all of his samples.  I didn't get along with any of the scents, and many of them were too similar to my nose.  In addition, I felt like the performance was FINE, nothing super special and it definitely did not outperform my favorite creams at the time, Saint James of London.  When you add to all of that, Als is 20$ for a four ounce tub of cream/croap I just never decided to buy a full version.  They just weren't for me.
