A bit of history:

     It all started when my mother gave me a puck of soap and a brush after she noticed my whiskers, I have been a wet shaver ever since. Around the same time, I started making my own colognes and splashes using rudimentary methods and ingredients given to me by my grandfather. In the following years, I picked up a straight razor and used it for some time. Unfortunately, in those days, it was hard to find information about maintaining straight razors and other pieces of useful information. After some time, I decided to put the straight razor away. In November 2008 I decided to start using my straight razor again. The problem was that every soap or cream that I used irritated my face. Since I am a trained chemist with many years of experience, I decided to start making my own soap in an attempt to reduce the problems I was experiencing. In February 2009, I created a formula with exceptional lathering ability that I could use without irritation. This formula lathered so well that it made a huge cloud of lather on top my brush.

     Because of the resemblance with the mushroom cloud, I named it "The Atom Bomb". Since my experience formulating shaving product was limited, I sent samples of "The Bomb", as it is now called by most people, to a group of very experienced wet shavers. The reviews were very encouraging although not completely satisfactory to my standards. By May 2009, the formula had undergone three rounds of optimization and the reviews were very impressive. I posted pictures of this new formula and people began to ask me for samples. In July 2009, a member made me an offer I could not refuse. I sold my first tub of The Bomb. As the popularity of The Bomb increased, I was contacted more often about availability of the product. The Bomb remained a custom product, until July 2010 when I launched the Shaving Cream Line to keep up with the increasing demand. I still make customs scents today. Today's Bombs are different from the original ones but they compare very favorable with the the world leaders of performance and quality, with the added benefit that our product does not contain harmful chemicals and preservatives. The After Shave Splashes were basically the continuation of my fascination with making colognes that I showed at earlier in my life. Later came the After Shave Balms. Once you try my products, you will agree that Al's Shaving Products are The Bomb!!!!
