This special edition shaving soap is presented in an anthracite-colored aluminum tin with an intricately stamped metallic label in antique brass. The triple-milled hard soap is intended to be used with a shaving brush.
The Special Edition features the characteristic fragrance of the collection and uses our 'Beta 4.3' formulation - a further step forward in the evolution of our shaving soap in pursuit of enhanced lubrication and protection during the shave and enhanced post-shave skin feel.
Manna is the sap that derives from the incision made onto the Ash tree that has grown wild for many centuries in the dried and sun kissed island of Sicily. For Saponificio Varesino, the manna sap used in this collection comes from the Park of Madonie situated between the towns of Castelbuono and Pollina.
The renewed formulation includes a larch tree extract which reduces trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL), making it an excellent choice for those skin types that tend to dryness. It also includes a new vegetal compound, based on castor oil, that gives a lubricating action and helps the razor mechanical action.
Product size: 5.3 oz (150g); 90mm diameter
The Manna di Sicilia fragrance has a pleasant note of elegant tobacco along with an intense floral citrus fragrance found in the men's bath soap.
Its aromatic top note of citrus of Sicily and coffee slides into a body note with coriander and a hint of nutmeg and pepper. The tail note brings vetiver, sandalwood, incense and a slight background note of vanilla.
