Somersets was founded in 1991 in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, England with the goal of delivering “the world’s most comfortable shave”. Our exceptional surroundings and heritage inspired us to create a range exceptional products – we’re purists (some say we are bordering on obsessive) so we use only the finest essential oils and natural ingredients from around the world.
All of our products are formulated in our own factory in England to do your skin good at the same time as delivering effective and noticeable results. To achieve this superior product performance we never use soap or harsh chemicals, so you won’t get that tight dry feeling after using Somersets.
To get a truly comfortable shave, preparation is key
For most people, shaving is one of the least gratifying experiences. Right up (or down!) there with emptying the dishwasher or ironing your shirts. It can be uncomfortable and even painful—leaving the skin nicked and uncomfortable reddened. The big razor companies have spent untold millions trying to convince us that the key to a better shave is the blade. And the more blades, the better. However, as a traditional single blade cut throat barber will tell you, the real key is how well you prepare your skin for shaving—and that's what Somersets is all about.
Our blend of natural essential oils moisturise your face as you shave and lubricate your razor’s blades. This helps prevent razor bumps, razor burn and irritation, so you get to enjoy a comfortable shave leaving you with perfectly smooth and refreshed skin.
Somersets customers are satisfied!
Don’t just take our word for it though, 70% of our consumers having been using Somersets for more than 5 years and 99% would recommend us. Here’s what just a few of them had to say:
