Alum Block with a Travel Bag


Alum block is a time tested natural aftershave, even ancient Egyptians more than four thousand years ago used it.

Alum block is a potassium alum crystal, which is a natural antiseptic and astringent. Potassium alum salts work by constricting blood vessels and tightening pores. Alum block will soothe your skin after shaving and stop any small cuts from bleeding. It also has a styptic effect, closing pores and leaving your skin soft and smooth.
Potassium alum has no scent to it, so it will not interfere with other products and perfume you use.
