product description

Our latest creation pays homage to one of the most sacred animals in Greek mythology and tradition, the Taurus (Bull). A symbol of raw power harnessed by humans as portrayed in Hercules’ Cretan Bull feat. It is also a symbol of transformation and ingenuity, when Zeus transformed into a bull to entice the beautiful Europa. Bull festivals dedicated to Apollo have been documented in Lesvos from ancient times. The tradition has persevered, changed and adapted all the way to our times with bull festivals being a focal point bringing the inhabitants together.

 The Taurus is the culmination of a eight-month process. It brings together iconic ingredients, harnesses their power and binds them together to improve the formula used in our Faena shaving soaps. As Theseus searched in the Labyrinth with the help of Ariadne to find Minotaur, the son of the Cretan Bull of Minoas and came out victorious, such was our 7 month endeavor to improve the formula already used in our Faena shaving soaps. The addition of water buffalo milk from Northern Greece gently melds with the renowned Greek goat yoghurt to become the central piece of this new formula. They combine to improve the cleansing and nourishment factors. The addition of organic shea butter and peach kernel oil enhance the conditioning properties and the gliding of the new formula. Aloe vera and home crafted St. John’s wort oil tame the end-result to eliminate skin irritation.

 We hope that you will enjoy this new formula, its rich lather and its enhanced slickness and post shave properties.

 Follow the Taurus. It will lead you to a unique shaving experience.

This soap is 150gr and has a fragrance of musk, whisky and wood.

NO PARABENS/SULFATES/PAlM OIL

Stearic acid, tallow, aqua (water), butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter, ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, potassium hydroxide, prunus persica (peach) kernel oil, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, sodium hydroxide, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, goat yoghurt, glycerin, lanolin, buffalo milk, kaolin, hypericum perforatum extract in olea europaea fruit oil, chamomille recutita (matricaria) flower, silk amino acids, dehydroacetic acid (and) benzyl alcohol, allantoin, tocopherol, parfum/fragrance.

In contrast to the other Faena shaving soaps, this formula requires minimum water on the shaving brush. Rinse the brush well and load the soap for 15-20 seconds. Face lather and add drops of water if needed.

Follow the Taurus for an amazing wet shaving experience!

To make a lather using a shaving soap you must first soak your shaving brush in hot water for a minute or two.After the brush has been left to soak, take it out of the water, and shake off any excess water.

Apply the shaving brush to the shaving soap and work it in a circular motion over the surface of the soap.After a minute or two of working the brush on the soap the brush should have picked up enough soap to proceed to the next step.

You now have a choice of where to build the soap into a lather. This can be done in the palm of your hand, a shaving bowl or directly onto your face.

For new starters a shaving bowl is a good idea because it allows you to see the soap develop into a lather and you control the amount of water that you add in a consistent way.

 A shaving bowl does not need to be anything special – it can be any bowl or large mug from your kitchen or it can be a specially designed shaving bowl.

To build the lather simply swirl the brush around inside the shaving bowl until the consistency stops changing which can take up to a minute. At this point you might need to add some more water to the mix.

 If the lather is still very stiff and thick then it needs more water so add hot water to the bowl about a teaspoon at a time. Eventually you want to get a lather that is light and shiny and has a texture similar to whipped egg whites (or slightly looser). 

 Begin by applying the brush with a circular scrubbing motion around the face and neck. This will exfoliate the skin, raise the beard hairs and surround each whisker with lather. The longer you do this process the better as it also helps to soften the beard.

When the face is completely covered you can change to a painting motion to even-out the lather over the face and take off any excess.

You are ready to go and enjoy a unique shaving experience!

Tip:  After you finish shaving, spread the remaining lather that is left in your bowl and brush to your face for a couple of minutes. Then rinse it off and your skin will have a nice hydration & softness!!
