DESCRIPTION
For those who prefer to shave with soap and water, our Cade Shaving Soap is just perfect. Subtly fragranced and enriched with Cade wood essential oil, it develops into a rich lather ensuring a comfortable and smooth shave.
ADVICE
In order to create a perfect lather, place a small amount of shaving cream in a shaving bowl, then rapidly swirl the damp brush around the bowl for about 30 seconds. Apply directly to your face, massaging with the brush.
CADE
For hundreds of years, the oil of the cade – or prickly juniper – tree has been highly prized for its natural antimicrobial and moisturising properties. Shepherds of Haute Provence have used it for generations to protect their faces and hands against the elements of the Alpine foothills. In our collection, this lush oil is used to protect men from the more modern challenges of shaving and pollution. Cade is still grown in Haute-Provence today, crawling across the stony soil of the Mediterranean coast in scrubby woodland known as garrigue – a word borrowed by the French from the Provençal Occitan word garriga. During the summer the smoky, herbal smell of the plant hangs over the region's foothills, inviting hikers to stop, close their eyes and inhale. Our collection uses the finest oils from a small picking area near the charming village of La Chaffaut. Set amidst fields of vibrant lavender and sunflower, where the cypress trees sway in the breeze, our harvesters cut the cade wood into chips before pressing it, using traditional techniques to extract its precious oils. The cade wood used to distil our oils are certified organic, with the ECOCERT stamp of approval ensuring that no pesticides or chemicals interfere with the natural growth of this cone-shaped tree.

  • A Welcome Return

    So glad L’Occitane have brought back this shave soap. When it was discontinued I really missed it and struggled to find anything that matched it in terms of quality. This is an essential product for me, it provides a close, clean and gentle shave. This soap provides moisturising care throughout the entire shave process and does not cause any irritation. My skin doesn’t feel tight and sore afterwards. The soap bar itself lasts for ages even with frequent daily shaving, it’s incredible value for money. This is the only product for me and I wouldn’t look back.

  • Great stuff

    I find it foams up well, the foam might not last but the slickness is still there and that's what you need.

  • A Poor Substitute

    The original shaving soap from L’Occitaine was excellent. This new replacement is a poor substitute. As other customers have pointed out, the lather is thin and doesn’t last. It doesn’t provide a smooth or satisfying shave. I won’t be buying any more.

  • A disappointing replacement

    My husband was delighted when the shaving soap reappeared having been a great fan of the original. However he is very disappointed with the new product. It lathers well initially but then the lather disappears. He has binned it.

  • Really good shaving shaving soap

    After not being able to purchase it I am glad they have decided to relaunch - it is not the same soap, less fragrant and not as rich in its lather but none the less an excellent shaving soap

  • I'm pleased to see this back

    Hoping this is the same, if not better than the previous product. This has not been available in Britain for several years and I've been buying when in France. Hope it stays!

  • Marvellous

    Been waiting for this for ages! Pity it does not have a storage facility such as a wooden or metallic dish; so it can remain on the bathroom shelf next to my husband shaving equipment - please do think about this for the near future 😊
