Barrister & Mann got its start, like many artisan soapmakers, with the need for a natural soap that didn't irritate sensitive skin. After much trial and error cooking up recipes in his Boston apartment, Will Carius hit on a formula for a tallow-based soap that received rave reviews. And that soap still tops "Best Artisan Soap" lists around the interweb. But he wasn't content to rest on his laurels. He continues to make a name for himself in the unique, creative scents he creates. A firm believer that "your shave should never be boring", Will has delved deeply into the craft of perfuming and scenting your soaps to give you an experience every time you shave. He is also committed to bringing the wet shaving love to the masses so he created a "Latha" line of soaps with his 50s minded father. For the price conscious, this soap still brings tallowy goodness but at a bargain price. A small business that sources locally, packages responsibly, and tests cruelty-free - you can't go wrong with Barrister & Mann.
