More than a century ago, a time before the hotsy-totsy gel-to-foam shave creams in a can, in an era where all a man needed was a high-quality shave brush and frothy shave soap in a bowl to catch a dame’s attention, Pappy van der Hagen and his family moved from Lith, Holland to the “land of opportunity:" America. It was here, the spirit of van der Hagen Enterprises was born and here, where it continues to thrive.
Today, van der Hagen Enterprises is the world's premier manufacturer for shaving tools. Men nationwide are getting back to their roots, thanks to the brand's boar and badger bristle shave brushes, pure, kettle processed shave soaps, ceramic shave bowls, post-shave balm and lotion, scrubs, and more. However, van der Hagen Enterprises’ back-to-basics, retro-inspired shave products are not for quirks, but for functionality. Each product is made from the purest ingredients and designed to deliver the closest, most cushioned and clean shave possible.Like a fine scotch, van der Hagen's shave soaps are handmade, batch by batch. Combining the tried and true method of kettle processing with modern, ultra pure ingredients, van der Hagen's shave soaps won't clog pores or blades, and they offer a superior razor glide. Their premium shave brushes offer gentle, exfoliating application, while their monogrammed ceramic bowl brings efficiency and class. No, there are no gimmicks here, just effective, quality products at an affordable price.
van der Hagen Enterprises is the premier specialty bar soap manufacturer in the world. The van der Hagen's have supplied soaps to many of the most respected companies in the personal care industry including: Avon, Harrods (UK), Bath & Body Works, Liz Claiborne, The Body Shop (UK), Michael Jordan, Boots (UK), O'Boticario (Brazil), Elizabeth Arden, Walt Disney, Estee' Lauder and Warner Bros. to name a few.
van der Hagen Enterprises owes it's renowned reputation as producers of the finest quality soaps to their use of the old fashioned kettle process. During this process, carefully selected ingredients are added to a heated kettle by a master compounder according to exacting temperatures. Once complete, the thin liquid is poured into molds, run through a cooling tunnel and hand packed. The result? A unique formula which contains over 40% humectant moisturizers. In addition, the Deluxe Shave Soap contains Aloe Vera & Shea Butter and the Glycerin Shave Soap contains Vitamin E & Oat Extract.
The kettle process is more labor intensive and the finer ingredients more expensive but the results speak for themselves. Van der Hagen shave soaps not only provide for the closest shave, they are also hypo-allergenic and rinse more completely than typical soaps, leaving your face feeling soft and smooth.
