Cubebe Special Edition Soap Trio
The Cubebe Collection takes it face care properties from the prized Monoi de Tahiti oil which is created when pure coconut oil is infused with the fragrance of macerated Frangipani (Tahitian gardenia) flowers.
Cubebe's fragrance features a citrusy, balsamic and aromatic top note of bergamot, lemon and white fir. The top notes give way to a slightly floral body note with spicy hints of pepper and nutmeg. At its base is a woody, musky and slightly amber background note of patchouly, vetiver, labdanum and benzoin.
This trio includes a Cubebe Special Edition Shaving Soap and After Shave Lotion in our elegant Special Edition packaging as well as a matching Shower Soap.
The cauldron production process, or Marseilles method, used for our soap represents the artisan tradition by which man has created soap for centuries. It is the skill, experience and eyes of the maker and not the management of machines or mechanical processes that brings the soap to life.
In a first phase called saponification, the fats – mainly consisting of glycerides and fatty acids – are converted into sodium salt. This operation must be carried out so that the resulting product is of good quality and suitable to be subjected to further steps of processing. From this first phase, it is therefore necessary to obtain a soap mass generally containing 30% water, with the least possible amount of alkali and electrolytes, as well as glycerol whose recovery is an economic factor of this process.
That mass is then further cooked, washed and liquified before being poured into soap molds and left to cure until the bars are hand-cut in our workshop.
Just as in the tradition then, we still produce soap with this ancient and natural method, which ensures a final product of top quality with excellent cleaning power but also serves as a very gentle and soothing treatment that results in softer and more elastic skin with repeated usage over time.
