Hi All-

I’ve been a wet shaver for over seven years now and I’ve had really good luck with my shaving routine and soaps.

I bought a few pucks of St. Charles Shave soap and have shaved with two (2) of them, producing excellent, great smelling lather. I love SCS products!

I used my first soap puck last week, and lathered straight from the tin it came in. After my shave, I ensured that all liquid water and moisture was drained from the container, and set it out to dry overnight, like all my other soaps following a shave.

I usually check the exposed soap surface after 24 hours to ensure that it has dried adequately. This time I checked after 24 hours, and the top 1/16” of the puck was mushy and felt “wet”, with a consistency of cold cream of wheat, or uncured soap. I decided to give it another 24 hours...The next day it felt the same. Over the weekend I put a fan on it and left it going for another 24 hours. No luck.

It has now been almost a week, and the top of the puck still feels soft and mushy. In fact, when a press a little harder, it almost feels as if the entire puck has become soft, almost like a croap.

I decided to try another SCS puck, but this time a different scent. Same results.


1) Do you think the soap is ruined? It does not smell like it’s gone bad - In fact it smells amazing.

2) If not ruined, do you think I should set it out for as long as it takes to “dry”? It may take ‘weeks’ to do at the rate I’m experiencing.

3) Do you think it would be safe to reseal in the tin if it remains “mushy”?


Any advice, or recommendation is much appreciated. Thanks, and Shave On!
