Place the bar directly on wet hair and rub to work into a lather. Once a substantial lather has been built, use your fingers to gently massage the soap into the roots of your hair and scalp. Rinse the soap completely from hair. Repeat if needed.
Apply Utility Bar directly to wet or damp skin on desired areas and rinse.
Use with a loofah or washcloth to exfoliate dead skin cells from your skin’s surface. You can lather the bar directly on the rough surfaces of your loofah or washcloth, then gently scrub your skin, or use the bar first, then exfoliate using circular motions. Rinse when finished.
Work into a lather in your hands or use Utility Bar directly against the beard to work into a lather. Then, use your fingers to work the soap through the beard down to the skin. Rinse thoroughly. Follow these steps a few times a week and follow up with a moisturizer such as Beard Oil or Utility Balm to avoid drying out the skin beneath your beard.
Wet your face with lukewarm water before applying Utility Bar. Then, either create suds with your fingers and apply soap to face or use Utility Bar directly on your face. Spread the soap to each area of your face using gentle, circular motions for 30 seconds to a minute. Rinse and pat your skin dry.
Use as a clear shave soap - when you need to see exactly where to clean up your edges - simply wet the bar, apply to the skin, and shave where needed.
For use as a creamy shave soap, place the Utility Bar at the bottom of a shaving mug, wet your shaving brush, and shake off any excess water. Next, run your brush over the Utility Bar and apply to face to create a thick, moisturizing lather. You’re ready for a comfortable, luxurious shave.
Keep Utility Bar dry between uses. This will help keep the bar intact without cracks and avoid the dreaded soap goo - the soft squishy soap a bar produces if left in wet conditions. We recommend using a soap dish with raised areas to keep the soap above pooled water, or a wire shower organizer to encourage air drying.
You can also blend your old bar once it gets small with a new Utility Bar. You can do this in the shower by creating a lather between the two, pushing them together, and allowing them to dry like this. After a few uses, they should fuse together into one bar.
