Hey gents,

Yaaaaaah! Believe me never trust a soap seller with a beard. ;-)

I have a collection of shave scented bath soaps thanks to the bearded soap sellers.

Benefit of the doubt here guys, the line up from memory is
Vanilla
Mint
Sandalwood
African potato
Only one guess is needed on what I went for...
African potato! What else would scream local?

Well, after having tried two of Jaco's soaps which are the Rooibos and the Kameelsperd Kick I can honestly say I LOVE them!

The Rooibos:

So easy to lather, a lovely sweet/herbal scent and great post-shave care.

The Kameelsperd Kick:

Lathers very easily also, powerful menthol fumes and a nice coffee aroma. Extremely heavy menthol sensation which is comparable to the Stirling Glacial soaps. Good skincare as well.

Jaco, keep doing what you're doing bro ;)

Thanks Jeff, glad you liked the Rooibos, I'll be working at making the menthol more subtle, but stronger on the Kameel...

Jaco, I’m amazed at how such a heavily-mentholated soap is able to lather so well. I remember when the original Stirling Glacial soap first came out it was very difficult to get it to lather. The trick was to let it sit out uncovered for a month because it needed extra time to cure properly.

I had to play around with the formula a bit, the amount of 'minty stuff' in the kameel is pretty insane, its the first soap that I produced where ingredients actually played a significant part in determining the costing, one mostly pay for the time factor when it comes to our shaving soaps. I'd be very happy if it keeps on delivering good shaves right till the end, so keep on reviewing, I'll keep on reading!
I have played around with temp and consistency to get the best performance and avoid the risk of separation or concentration of certain ingredients in parts of the soap, but even the ones put out at higher temps are performing good. Our soaps generally works the opposite way round, the more you use it the more stable it keeps and delivers, to me it is the ideal soap for the 'regular' shavers who only keep one or two items in the cupboard and uses them every time. You got me lus for the kameel now...

I just used the Rooibos soap before and I had a great shave with it albeit a little too long because of the rinky dink Micro Touch razor I used. The lather was so dense and rich that it held up for EIGHT, yes, EIGHT passes. That’s how good this soap is! ;)

They are, but not the African Potato, for now, I am doing a bit of experimentation with that, I had a supply problem with some of the ingredients.

My broer if Zuma means a heavy dose then you’re going to need that Kameelperd’s Kick soap. You can’t get more Zuma than that. I told my brother-in-law that if he tried that soap it would knock the shit out of him - trust me, it’s POTENT!

Hehe, Zuma was our previous president, heavily allegedly involved in state capture and billions disappearing. He has a basically understanding of numbers and believes that a shower is can cure aids after allegedly raping his niece. I'm not very au fait without politics and could be a wrong here, just a layman's understanding... Het has to bit of another skull deformity which people teased home for having two heads. One of for self enrichment an ones for lying about it... Something like that...
