Best Bar Soap for Shaving Legs

Can I shave my legs with bar soap?

You absolutely can shave your legs with bar soap if you use the right one! The purpose of shave cream or shaving foam from the beginning has 2 purposes:

1. To simply help the razor glide across your legs smoothly, helping you to avoid cuts or nicks.

2. Help prevent razor burn by adding moisture to the legs while shaving.

With that being said, alternatively using a shave soap is perfectly acceptable, as long as you're using the right kind. That's what we're going to get into in this post!

Can you use any bar soap for shaving?

We do not recommend using just any bar soap for shaving, or use on your skin at all. Goat milk soap is by far the healthiest and most moisturizing soap for washing or shaving your skin.

You can learn all about the benefits of goat milk soap and why you'd use goat milk soap vs. "regular" soap.

Which bar soap is best for shaving?

As we previously discussed, goat milk soap is the best soap you can use to shave your legs because of the moisturizing and nourishing properties of goat milk as the base.

The specific goat milk soaps that are the most recommended for shaving are the soaps that have essential oils in them, rather than fragrance oil.

Also note that your Faith Farms goat milk soap bar can be used as a general bath soap for your body, hand soap, or is even gentle enough to use as a face soap (just avoid the eyes), and is a wonderful natural shampoo option as well! So you'll be getting so much more for your money when you purchase it as a shave bar.

These include the soaps listed below!

1. Lavender Goat Milk Soap

Lavender is such a classic scent and a favorite with many. Lavender is a sweet, woodsy, floral scent that is often used in aromatherapy for its calming and relaxing properties.

Ingredients:  Saponified coconut oil, raw goat milk, olive oil, palm oil, essential oil, cocoa butter, shea butter

 

 

 

2. Good Morning Goat Milk Soap

This gentle simple is just what the name says: wake up with a blend of lavender, lemongrass, patchouli, and clary sage essential oils.

Ingredients:  Saponified coconut oil, raw goat milk, olive oil, palm oil, essential oil, cocoa butter, shea butter

 

 

 

 

3. Tea Tree Goat Milk Soap

Our Tea Tree Goat Milk Soap has a sharp, crisp almost medicinal smell because of all the beneficial and natural plant chemicals contained in the plant from which this oil is derived. Tea Tree essential oil is believed to have antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties shown to help combat skin infection/inflammation such as psoriasis, acne, etc.

Ingredients:  Saponified coconut oil, raw goat milk, olive oil, palm oil, essential oil, cocoa butter, shea butter

 

 

4. Lemon Sage Goat Milk Soap

Light and refreshing citrusy scent.

Ingredients:  Saponified coconut oil, raw goat milk, olive oil, palm oil, essential oil, cocoa butter, shea butter

 

5. Honey Oatmeal (Unscented) Goat Milk Soap

This is highly recommended as a shave soap because of the oatmeal in it that helps with exfoliation!

This soap is one of our original and most beloved soaps.

The honey in this soap is naturally antibacterial, so it is great for acne treatment and prevention. Honey also contains antioxidants which are great for slowing down aging and adding extra moisture for a natural glow!

Ingredients:  Saponified coconut oil, raw goat milk, olive oil, palm oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, oatmeal, raw local honey

(Many people wonder if we use castor oil or bentonite clay - we do not.)

How do you shave your legs with goats milk soap?

It's easy! Just dampen your legs with hot water, grab your bar of soap, and create a good lather by rubbing it onto your legs (either directly or by first putting it on your hands, a washcloth, or a loofah) in an upward circular motion.

Shave, and rinse!

Don't forget to moisturize with your Faith Farms whipped body butter or solid lotion bar when you're done. ☺️

This is the perfect natural shaving cream option that you can even get months of use out of!
