BullGoose Shaving is expecting a shipment tomorrow of Kaimu Shaving Soap and aftershave balm from Hawaiian Shaving Company. This soap uses activated charcoal (hence the black color) and has been receiving excellent reviews. Stay tuned.

Interesting. I think I prefer black to the bright green, pink, and purple of some creams.

From the Hawaiian Shaving Company website:

Named after the black sand beach on the Big Island of Hawaii that was destroyed by a lava flow from Kilauea volcano in 1990, this black shaving soap looks like the lava in the tin, but lathers up white. Kaimū means “Gathering at the sea” in Hawaiian, and was a popular beach famous for its black sand and abundant coconut trees. Our vegan black soap is also rich with coconut oil, and activated charcoal made from coconut husks.

It's nice to see a short, simple, and all natural ingredients list.  This will appeal to those preferring vegan soaps.
