Probably the same thing that happens to most niche business ideas. There is strong interest in the beginning but the momentum doesn't continue to make it a viable going concern in the long run.

My humble opinion - too diverse too fast ? I gifted my SH soap to my brother, but really like the Teller, which RVT sampled sent me. I need to get one before it's all gone...

This is really sad news. The sweet almond milk, and citrus garden scents were fantastic. However, these things do happen. Always sad when a good product gets discontinued.

Anthony Macri (owner, and soap maker) from Shaver Heaven is a fantastic guy. Not only a great soap maker but a real wet shaving enthusiast.

BTW He has an incredible collection of straight razors as well.

We should be releasing the soap before the end of the month.

It's a pity he's closing down, had some great soaps.

Seems like their retirement is ending soon. I'm very happy because it's really a great product. I've just got their maple sugar version and that's been rationed more than what I'd like.

Good to know. It's a pity, I loved the scents of these soaps but the burning sensation I got from them just ruined the enjoyment. Never got a rash and the shaves were always good though. If you're interested and would like to purchase mine, jegreen, for a reduced amount, send me a PM and we can work something out. I have the Sweet Almond Milk and Mayan Musk available. Both been used for about 5 to 6 shaves each. Still well over 90% full.

I'll list them on the B/S/T forum in the near future anyway.

Unofrunately no. Another customer bought all our stock when he heard they closed down. I must chat to Anthony about a restock order when he starts up again.
