Alum, a natural mineral found in Europe, was used by the Egyptians more than 4,000 years ago as a shaving essential. Its antiseptic properties calm razor burn, soothe irritations and help stop bleeding in the event of a nick or cut.

How to use: After shaving, moisten stone with cold water and rub it gently on the face. For minor cuts moisten the stone with cold water and place it over the cut for a tightening sensation that leaves your skin feeling comfortable.

  • Appropriate for all skin types.
  • Can be used as an astringent for oily complexions.
  • By The Art of Shaving®; made in France.


Aluminum Sulfate, Aqua (Water).
