Has anyone here ever tried a black shave soap? Los Angeles Shaving Soap Company have a few. The black color comes from activated charcoal. It looks worth a try!!!

I went through two tubs of black soap, with activated charcoal, from Pereira Shavery.  Frankly, the activated charcoal did not contribute anything to the soap other than the color.  I have also gone through several bars of bath soap with activated charcoal, and found no benefit to it.

I've also used - and are using - the soap from Pereira, and I think my skin feels smoother than with some other soaps?

Might be confirmation bias though... but I like the soap.

I had a black soap from Germany, I think it was a new Speick.

(Looked that up, yes indeed:

It did stain my towels and so on though!

Black soap can be made with several ingredients, over the pigments.

Charcoal is one, and can produce very black soap as the BIB & Tucker Bitter Orange Shaving Cream.

This kind needs a lot of water, has a little scrub benefits to the skin, and gives a gray lather.

Aswell the pure Vanilla Bean extract is black, like the Kell's Original.

Dolomite lime is a nice one too, as Saponificio Varesino Dolomiti Black (Beta 4.0 Special Edition 2016).

Soap "Svoboda Men Care" with charcoal. I don't recommend it. Personally, for me, this is a common soap, will go for washing hands and washing, but not as for shaving.
