One of my dearest friends who I've met at TSD lives in Russia, and he has sent me some absolutely wonderful stuff from there. Russia is becoming a top producer of excellent creams for very affordable prices, which unfortunately are usually not available in North America. Here is a review of the first shaving soap from there, and although it's only a sample, it's still a wonderful shaving item.

Ease of lathering: 10/10--Explodes into rich lather right away.

Longevity of lather: 10/10--Perfect stablity for multi-passes.

General skincare: 10/10--Moisturizes, soothes, and protects great.

Scent: 9/10--A nice bergamot scent with a soapy note. I love it.

Price: N/A--I couldn't say. I heard it's not expensive there.

Would I buy again: 10/10--You better believe it!

I enjoyed a magnificent straight razor shave this morning with this soap, and let me say this - not even a professional barber could have done a better job. I had so much fun whipping up the lather, and the scent reminded me of an old-school barbershop. I definitely want this soap again!

Sorry for the late answer, but no I have no ingredient list. According to my friend who sent it to me, it contains all natural ingredients.
