I wanted to introduce a shave soap and splash inspired by my travels to the Hawaiian islands. Honolulu is still one of my favourite layovers.
Inspired by a true story
Eddie’s after shave elixir is based on the life of Eddie Aikau. Eddie was a lifeguard and surfer in Hawaii credited with saving over 500 people.
Scent Notes: Tangerine, Guava, Nectarine, Carnation, Teakwood, Basil, Green Bamboo and Musk.
Eddie's after shave elixir won't bite you! It's designed to leave your skin feeling nourished and moisturized. The post shave feeling is awesome!
SHAKE WELL BEFORE EACH USE
In 1968, he became the first lifeguard hired by Honolulu to work on the North Shore. Not one life was lost while he served as lifeguard.
“Eddie Would Go”
Aikau was a legend on the North Shore, pulling people out of waves that no one else would dare to do. That's where the famous saying came from
Eddie would go, when no one else would or could.
In March of 1978, Eddie volunteered as a crew member of a Polynesian canoe to recreate the Polynesian migration. The canoe developed a leak and capsized. Eddie used his surfboard and paddled for help. Eddie was never seen again. The rest of the crew was rescued and Eddie’s body was never found.
I worked with Linda from Purely Skinful Handmade Essentials to bring this story to life in a new shave soap and splash set. The scent notes are inspired by Hawaii and Polynesian influences.
