Angora Soaps- Barbershop Shaving Soap
Reminiscent of an old Turkish barbershop. Zesty top notes of citrus, basil with subtle blend of cedar wood, patchouli and oakmoss. One of their best sellers.
About Angora Soaps
The owner of Angora Soaps, Pete, discovered wet shaving during his time in the Air Force. Using a disposable razor was a terrible experience that always left his face irritated and torn up and there was no way around it in the military.
While he was stationed overseas in Turkey, Pete had the pleasure of experiencing his first barber straight shave using traditional methods. Turks are well known for their mastery of a straight razor and it surprised him how a single edge old fashion blade and some Arko shaving soap could be more enjoyable. This fascinated Pete and led him to wet shave online forums and YouTube videos.
After 10 years of wet shaving, Pete decided he wanted to try his hand at soap making and found a new passion of formulating his line of soaps.
Working from home and a global pandemic accelerated his dream of a small business to share his creations. Pete launched Angora Soaps, a tribute to his Turkish shaving roots (and his Turkish Angora Cat). Angora wool is some of the softest and fluffiest in the world and their shaving soaps embody this property in their lather.
