Grapefruit Shaving Soap
Great to use as a shaving soap. Smooth bubbly lather and tangy scent from Grapefruit essential oil lifts your mood and offers a variety of other health benefits. It’s particularly good for oily skin. The fine salt, carbon and natural clay provide gentle exfoliation and a spa feel to your bath or shower time.
Salt on your skin is great! If you’re lucky enough to take a dip in the ocean or are using a salty soap you may notice the following benefits.
Salt contains many wonderful minerals such as magnesium, calcium, and potassium. They help combat bacteria and speed up the healing process. Those with oily skin can benefit from washing with salty soap due to its moisture-reducing abilities that can help control excess oil, which leads to clogged pores. Besides its “scrubby” element, salt acts as a great exfoliant that opens pores for a deeper clean and allows your skin to better absorb moisturisers and other treatments. The salt also helps form a rich smooth lather, so it is a great shaving soap.
Handmade natural shaving soap is kinder to the skin than ‘normal’ soap or cleansing bars. Because it’s kinder to the skin, it’s absolutely perfect to use on the delicate facial area too.
Mass-produced soaps can contain chemicals that are known to dry out the skin and leave it irritated and sore. This is why many people over the years have avoided using it on their face. It’s also why manufacturers have made a huge business out of marketing and selling overpriced facial cleansers.
Each grapefruit shaving soap bar is 120g minimum and some chunky cuts are up to 140g.
The salty soap range is vegan, contains no palm oil, no SLS, no sulphates and is not tested on animals.
I don’t shave the edges off my soap because I don’t mind the rustic look and you get an extra 4 showers from that.
The packaging and postage packaging contains no plastic and is all re-useable. I may have re-purposed some packaging to send you this too.

Having extremely sensitive, dry skin – I’ve always avoided soap bars because of how irritated my skin feels after using them, it’s been a nightmare to find a plastic free body wash alternative that doesn’t dry my skin out. I’d seen multiple people comment on how great Sophia’s soap bars were so thought I’d give one a try. I was instantly drawn to the smell of the Salty Grapefruit. Not only does it smell super fresh my skin actually feels moisturised after using it which was a complete shock given my history with soap. I am over the moon with this product and would highly recommended it to anyone scared of using a soap bar for fear of it drying out their skin. Sophia’s products are super.

I adore this soap – everybody tells me how fresh I smell after using it. The salt makes it great for exfoliating and shaving. I have very sensitive skin which is easily irritated but I have been using these soaps for 18 months and I love them!
