Where would Shaving Time be without its Artisans?
Here you will find a brief introduction to some of the people and companies who provide us with their wonderful product.
Paragon Shaving are a husband and wife team from British Columbia in Canada. They make premium shaving brushes from South American sourced hardwoods fitted with specially sourced knots. Quality is their ethos and what they take from South America in terms of raw materials they give back in the form of support for a Charity HOPAC which is a non profit organisation in El Salvador which aids children and adults with cerebral palsy and other disabilities. The mahogany used is not only hard but selected for their inherent properties that make them suitable for use when exposed to water.
Founded in 2012 by Rod and Mandy Lovan, they produce some of the best shaving products known to the shaving man.Based in downtown Booneville, Arkansas, USA . I had the privilege to spend a few days with the Lovan family back in April 2019 and I can't wait to go back. If you have never tried shaving with a Stirling, I suggest you grab a Shave soap sample just as quick as you can.
