The Ultimate Shave Bar


Condition Heal Protect icons

Shaving is something many of us do regularly, male or female. Whether you’re using foam or soap, there are often nasty chemicals hiding in your products that you lather across your skin and absorb into your pores. Not so good.

Our shave bars are designed to be great for you and for nature. Plant-based and made with native plant extracts like East Cape mānuka oil, we use only the top grade ingredients for our bars which are handmade in small batches here in Tauranga, New Zealand. 

They are free from palm-oil, suitable for vegans and cruelty-free. Better yet, for each bar you buy, we donate 50 cents to The Reforestation Fund to help restore NZ’s native forests. In purchasing a Mānuka Essentials Shave Bar, you give not only our body the best, but you give back to our environment for years to come.

If you’re ready for a silky smooth shave that leaves your skin feeling fantastic, then this is the shave soap for you.

Tip: be sure to use a bar holder or allow your bar to free-drain to get the most out of it!

How to use

3. Wash the residue from your face (ideally with a shower) and store the bar in a dry, free draining area between uses.
Tip: for optimal results, use in combination with The Ultimate Shave Oil (apply Shave Oil before lathering the Shave Bar into your face).
