Dolomiti Special Edition Gel Trio
The anti-oxidant properties of Dolomiti comes from the unique mix of clay and mineral found there to form the heart of this collection's shaving experience.
The fragrance of this collection is crowned by a top note of light citrus lemon, with a hint of sage. The core is floral and definitely lavender, with a hint of cloves and black pepper.
This trio includes a Dolomiti Special Edition Shaving Soap in our elegant Special Edition packaging, After Shave Lotion as well as a matching Shower Gel.
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.
The fragrance of this collection is crowned by a top note of light citrus lemon, with a hint of sage. The core is floral and definitely lavender, with a hint of cloves and black pepper. The tail notes of amber and woody vetiver, patchouli and cedar wood characterizes the personality of the perfume.
I really enjoyed the shave soap with its rich lather and glide properties. The shower gel cleans very well and a little dallop goes a long way. The after shave is a nice refresh to the skin with a mild appealing scent. However the duty and shipping charges to Canada are more than half of the value of the products themselves. For this reason only it sadly makes it cost prohibitive for me.
