Hotel Cecil Epic Talc Free Man Powder | Mentholated! | | Homage To The Original Burma Shave | 3.5 Oz
Our Most EPIC Return Of A Lost Classic Yet, Hotel Cecil! An Homage To Burma Shave & The Cecil Hotel!
Though often overshadowed by their now historic, creative marketing, that really burned itself into the collective consciousness of America, the scent of Burma Shave in its own right is quite iconic too, if not more so! Warm, Powdery, Clean, Spicy, Masculine & Nostalgic! A scent so classic and epic we couldn't sit by any longer and see it lost to time. Sure, the signs, rhymes, and history of Burma Shave is the stuff of legend but the scent is equally so and should be celebrated as such. I can't fathom anyone not immediately falling in love with this fragrance. Seriously, there's just something so pure, wide eyed Americana, and forever innocent about this stuff, and THAT may just be the reason for this ultimate Halloween Mashup Paradox of Good & Evil, Dark & Light, Heaven & Hell! Bwa-ha-ha-ha...[*Lightning crashes. You may turn off the Vincent Price Voice now.]
Oh you are gonna thank me for this one fellas! Nothing feels better after a shower than a close shave, but second to that is mentholated powder. Cooling, Soothing, Long Lasting & Absorbent. Chilly willy....
Some of you may recall our infamous mentholated "Snow Balls" powder we did way back in the day, our latest John Frum Talc Free Man Powder is that 2.0! Not that it is as chilly, because it is not, that'd be cruel...but it is silky smooth feeling and will keep you dry, fresh and smelling great all the live long day!
Fun Fact: Gold Bond and I were born in the same town! I drove by the original shop as a child on the way to elementary school! I also grew up in a Gold Bond house, cause that really is a thing where I come from, so I know the stuff intimately. Really, Gold Bond powder was one of my toys as a child. (I am totally serious) So believe me when I say you're going to enjoy this stuff, because I do!
Magnesium Carbonate: A mineral that is amazingly absorbent but also a great natural fixer for binding the musk to the powder.
Organic Corn Starch: This is what gives you the "Slip" and "Bloom" of the powder! But beyond the velvety texture, Corn Starch is especially soothing for itchy skin.
Organic Arrow Root Powder: Arrow Root is a silky, absorbent powder-like extract obtained from the rootstock of a small, perennial, and tropical underground plant named Maranta Arundinaceae.
The tuber of the plant is washed, drained, de-scaled, and reduced to a pulp manually. Now a milky liquid, it is strained thoroughly in order to separate the starch from rest of the components. The starch captured is then dried in the sun forming into a white powder. The stuff feels so satiny it is used in replacement as talc in baby powders!
Brazilian Rose Clay: is a mild kaolin clay, meaning it is a naturally occurring clay that contains kaolinite as its principle constituent. Kaolinite is a clay mineral, also also known as a silicate mineral are found within certain rocks. A soft, earthy, white mineral, it’s produced when weather wears down aluminum silicate minerals like feldspar.
Most clays have the super ability to absorb impurities from the skin, such as dirt, and oil. Where clays differ is in how much they absorb from the skin. Rose clay is perfect for mostly all skin types because it doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oils. Using a super absorbent clay would also be overkill when we were already using Magnesium Carbonate & Arrow Root.
It's true, some clays can be so drying you may end up experiencing excessive dryness, and flaking. That's why Rose Clay is really perfect for sensitive skin types.
Plus, it adds a really cool red tone to the color of the powder!
Red Sandalwood Powder: or ‘Rakta Chandana’, is not only another absorbing powder but a natural anti-inflammatory agent that is highly soothing in nature. For this years it has been used thousands of years in Ayurvedic Medicine. It also, like red clay, possesses a wonderful color that really adds to the spirit of our John Frum fragrance!
Baking Soda: Not only absorbs odor, and relieves itchiness but it is also a natural antibacterial making it a not just a no brainer but also one of the super stars of this Talc-Free Blend!
Menthol Powder: What can I say about such a cool ingredient that you don't already know? It is found in peppermint and other natural oils. It is used as a flavoring and in decongestants and analgesics as well as aftershaves & colognes. These crystals however, I powdered myself into the finest powder...and this is where that tingle comes from. Again, you are welcome.
Directions: After toweling off from a shower apply powder liberally. Works wonderfully as a mild strength deodorant too for folks who find pit sticks too harsh. Also great for folks with stinky feet! Sprinkle powder in socks and sneakers to aid in absorbing odor. For super studs who may have a lady coming over, sprinkle a little on your sheets to freshen 'em up! There are a million and one uses for a good powder, Enjoy!
