Triumph and Disaster Old Fashioned Shaving Cream is a unique product on the market as it can be used with both straight and cartridge razors. And it actually works exceptionally well for both types of shaving; we have tried and tested it in both cases with great results.
All other shaving creams and soaps I have brought specifically to use straight shaving have blocked up a cartridge razor almost instantly. These products are designed to be much thicker and give superior lubrication over traditional cartridge razor canned goo.
Cartridge razors by design can not handle anything other than very thin foam due to the small gaps between blades. However, the reality is that those who shave with a cartridge razor need more skin protection that those using a straight razor. A modern cartridge razor has at least 3 blades. A single pass over the skin with a cartridge razor is the same as shaving the same area three times with a straight razor.
A typical cartridge razor shave requires you to go over the same patch of skin multiple times. Some areas of skin will see a razor blade up to 18 times or more !! No wonder some people are left with raw red skin after every cartridge shave.
Triumph and Disaster have developed a shaving cream that provides outstanding lubrication for any type of shaving. It is best to apply it with a shaving brush, but a little worked in the palm of your hand (or directly onto your face) works very well. You can add a couple of drops of water to get the lather to the consistency you prefer.
Triumph and Disaster have managed to produce a product that will wash out of a cartridge razor easily. While still providing exceptional lubrication and a thickness that matches other straight razor shaving soaps and creams.
The Triumph and Disaster Old Fashioned Shaving Cream contains no nasty chemicals and it is made right next door to Cutler Road in beautiful Albany, Auckland.
