All MÜHLE soaps are made from very elaborate recipes that perfectly prepare the skin and beard at a particularly careful and mild shave. A benefactor fun!
Grapefruit & Mint – invigorating and refreshing
The combination of fruity grapefruit, refreshing mint and finely balanced acerbic notes of black pepper, cedar wood, as well as amber and vetiver transforms shaving into a refreshing experience. Vitalising mint oil has a pleasant, slightly cooling effect on the skin.
The Material – Thermo Ash
Besides beech and oak, ash is one of the most important indigenous deciduous timbers. It is to be found in Europe, most frequently in more northerly regions.
For our application, the wood is treated at over 200°C without chemical additives. This alters the properties of the wood considerably. Resin formation and shrinkage are reduced to a minimum and a high level of resistance to water and soap is achieved. The result of the thermal treatment is a sustainable and durable alternative to hard tropical woods.
The wood of this bowl was heated to a high temperature for a short time as part of a thermal process. This results in a high level of resistance to water and lends the wood its dark brown colour. In combination with strongly alkaline soap, the natural surface of the thermo ash can stain. The quality of the soap is not affected by this and the discolouration gets less over time. It’s normal for the wood to have a more intensive scent, which will dissipate over time.
