Edwin Jagger is the world's leading maker of high-end, handcrafted shaving equipment. The Edwin Jagger Alum Block 54g is a natural, paraben-free styptic that helps to close pores and provide post-shave comfort.
Alum is a natural potassium alum aftershave that is the original antiseptic aftershave. It is a chemical compound with medicinal healing properties that has been used in alchemy for hundreds of years. By constricting blood vessels and tightening pores, it can also help to speed up the healing of any cuts caused by wet shaving.
Start by washing away any leftover shaving soap from your face for the best results. Wet the block with cold water to help close pores, then rub it on the area that needs post-shave comfort (external use only). When properly applied, the block should slide over the skin with ease, leaving it soft and smooth.
During usage, the user is likely to experience a mild tingling sensation. This is due to the astringent properties of the tea and is to be anticipated.
Rinse and dry the album block after each use. Return it to the plastic case it came in to keep it dry, or store it anywhere else dry. Since alum blocks are soluble in water, they will eventually wear out, but they are built to last a long time. Alum blocks can last longer if they are thoroughly dried after use and properly stored.
