Sapnificio Varesino formulations contain active ingredients that, in order to give the best perfomance, need to solubilize and/or melt. The maximum performance can be obtained in this way:1. Cover the soap surface with a thin veil of hot water for few minutes. The quantity of water needed may vary depending on your water hardness and the rate of humidity of the soap 2. Once the whole soap surface is covered by water, soak a badger shaving brush,rinse it well and then pour the thin veil of water that bloomed the soap on the knot, and then start loading (20-30 seconds),face/bowl lather without adding water.
