Edwin Jagger is Europe's foremost manufacturer of luxury handmade shaving equipment. Edwin Jagger products are crafted and hand assembled in Sheffield England, a city known for its rich industrial history. The Edwin Jagger Alum Block 54g is a natural paraben free product that has a styptic effect, closing the pores and offering post-shave comfort. Alum is the original antiseptic aftershave made with natural potassium alum. It is a type of chemical compound that has been used in alchemy for hundreds of years due to its medicinal healing qualities, giving it the ability to reduce redness and razor burn. It can also encourage faster healing of any cuts caused by wet shaving by constricting blood vessels and tightening pores. Traces of alum can be found in some shaving soaps and creams in order to elevate comfort during shaving but applying a pure alum block to skin post-shave will offer the highest level of relief.
