    David from Shaving Time https://shavingtime.co.uk/, in association with Lather Bros. Soap Company https://www.latherbros.com/ have very kindly donated a soap for a passaround. I got in touch with Andres to get some further information about this relative newcomer to the shaving soap market, here what he had to say -

    Lather Bros. Soap Co. is a husband and wife (Andres & Stephanie) run business from Miami Florida. We started about a year and a half ago with the intent to bring more attention to wet shaving in the South Florida area. Besides shaving products, we offer bath products and hair products just around the corner. Our soaps are made from natural products and most are themed to express the multi culture that you see in Miami and South Florida. We also like to create limited releases inspired by pop culture TV, Movies and Comics. All our labels and art are created in house by me, as my first passion is art and graphic design.

    This is our old school take on a classic BayRum scent, We've added a hint of coconut and fig for that South Florida feel. With plenty of oils and butters to moisturize and slick the skin, this soap will provide a great shave.

    Ingredients - Stearic Acid, Coconut Water, Aloe Vera Juice, Tallow, Coconut Oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Sodium Hydroxide, Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Glycerin, Sodium Lactate Essential Oils and Fragrance

    If you'd like to take part in this passaround, just add your name to the list -

    I used my Hela Bad last night and I really I wasn't expecting the performance. It's one of the thirstiest soaps I've ever used but that also makes it one of the slickest. I could have wiped the lather off and still had an excellent shave. I also couldn't believe the amount of water it can take. Lather stability can be an issue with that much water but I'm certain it could take even more without dissipating. Cushion is actually as good as any high end soap. The properties are very similar to Abbate Y La Mantia, which is high praise indeed. It beats a lot of the big established American artisans. I'm very, very impressed! You guys are in for a treat.
