Usage Advice

Saponificio Varesino’s formulations contain active ingredients that, in order to obtain the best perfomance, need to solubilize and/or melt. The maximum performance can be obtained in this way: cover the soap surface with a thin veil of hot water for few minutes. Soak a badger shaving brush, rinse it well and then pour the thin veil of water that bloomed the soap on the brush, and then start loading (20-30 seconds), face or bowl lather without adding water.

  • Not tested on animals

This product contributes to the fight against deforestation:

Soap 100% vegetable, NO PALM OIL. For the saponification we use only FOOD GRADE vegetable oils , of which 50% oil COCONUT. A soap of the highest quality, with moisturizing and foaming properties. This is our contribution to the protection of forests, whose main cause of deforestation, is the consumption of palm oil

    Saponificio Varesino Opuntia shaving soap is simply STUNNING!
    The scent is Gorgeous, the performance is outstanding!
    BRAVO! Saponificio Varesino and Grazie from Australia!

  2. Justin

    Amazing! The only SV soap I used before Opuntia was Dolomiti 4.0, and while I absolutely adored Dolomiti, somehow SV seemed to improve their formula drastically from beta 4.0 to beta 4.3! I would know because I’ve almost finished the Dolomiti so I got to know the soap quite intimately. The 4.3 explodes into a creamy, voluminous (but very slick) lather with much less loading than the 4.0.

    The scent of Opuntia is very complex, with the pineapple being the most noticeable note. Underneath the pineapple are darker, heavier notes that are just intoxicating. At first, I felt neutral toward the scent—but now, I am addicted to it. It grew on me immensely and now I’m afraid I could never go without it!

    Post-shave feel is outstanding. Skin feels soft and looks radiant after the shave. 10/10!

    Sapone da barba dalla fragranza spettacolare! Strepitosa la resa e la meccanica di montaggio. Prodotto d’eccellenza per le sue qualità di scorrevolezza e di protezione della pelle. La bontà del sapone si evidenzia anche nel post shave. Lascia la pelle idratata e morbida.
    Abbinato al suo after shave completa una sbarbata al top.
