The small-batch 3.5oz soap discs, available in Cedar Clove, Citron Neroli and Original White varieties for $25 (€19.40, £16.50) each, can be used both as a beard shampoo and as a shaving cream.
The products’ handsome packaging, created by Brooklyn-based Hovard Design, features earthy colours and robust typography that hints at the printing traditions of the past.
