Details

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.

For best results, begin by washing away any remaining shaving soap on your face. Moisten the block with cold water to assist with closing pores, then rub the block on to the area requiring post-shave comfort (external use only). When applied properly, the block should simply glide over the skin with ease and leave it feeling soft and smooth.

It’s likely the user will feel a slight tingling sensation during use. This is simply due to the astringent qualities and is to be expected.

After use, rinse the album block and pat it dry. Store back in the plastic case provided in order to keep it dry or use an alternative dry storage area.

Alum blocks are soluble in water, so the block will eventually wear out but is designed to be long lasting. Alum blocks that are thoroughly dried after use and stored away correctly will have a longer lifespan.

The Edwin Jagger Styptic Pencil works in a very similar manner and is ideal for use on the go.

The Edwin Jagger Alum Block is one of the best value alum products on the market, so it a great choice for those looking to try it out for the first time.

INGREDIENTS: ALUM POTASH


Customer Reviews


EVERYONE should know about ALUM
I cannot believe what an awesome product this is and I cannot imagine ever shaving again without it because since using this post shave I have never had a razor bump or burn, not even a red mark or blemish is left anywhere I've applied it post shave, in growing hairs are now no more and because of its antiseptic properties i have used in other topical applications where there is some minor skin irritation and it really has proved to be a game changer and miracle product for me. I can't rate it highly enough!

E.J. Alum Block
Way better than the stipsa after shave stick. It's not tingling so much as a stick, but it does a great job at disinfecting. I noticed that is not so good at stopping bigger cuts comparing to a stipsa that do the job way better.

Strongly recommend the Edwin Jagger alum block!!!

Unfortunately I need it!!
It works and it works well, no more pencils they break easily - and really for the cost of the block it works out better for me, it's a good job it only sting's my face and not my wallet.

Could do with a tin/container for storage!
'Does what it says on the tin', BUT unfortunately does not come in a tin/container, which would be really useful when it comes to storing after each use!

Review by Roger / (Posted on 26/09/2018)
Wary at first,however...
Ordered this item, and as per usual, speed of delivery by Edwin Jagger is excellent.
I'd heard about Alum Blocks and their apparent 'miracle' powers in dealing with nicks/cuts and helping identify areas where I had perhaps been too aggressive with my razor.
My first use was following a three-pass shave, and I did indeed feel that I had overdone it and so this was the perfect opportunity to test the Alum block for myself.
It's quite heavy and felt like having a stone in my hand.I soaked it in water as you are supposed to and ran it over my face and neck. Any 'weepers' were immediately cleared up and the tender areas were indeed 'identified'. I was pleasantly surprised that albeit it revealed sensitive areas, it wasn't sore at all.
It would appear then that this is a useful little tool to add to the routine.
If I was to have one minor quibble, it would be that considering the quality I have come to expect and admire from Edwin Jagger, I would have liked the block to come in a plastic kind of snap-shut case as opposed to the thin cover it comes in. Once you dry the block and replace it in the cover, it's no big deal, but I imagine repeated use will soon have you looking for a better holder. My 5 stars related to the block itself as it does what they all say it should and would recommend.

My second one.
My son was suffering soreness after wet shaving. He tried my EJ DE razor and followed up with my alum block. He was so impressed I have had to replace both.

Worthwhile
First time using an alum block, but what a difference it makes post-shaving. Stops minor bleeding and relieves irritation. Can sting a little when applied but leaves skin feeling taut and clean. Agree with another reviewer and think it would be nice if this also came in its own purpose container, rather than the plastic case. That said, I just let mine dry and put it back in there.

Great stuff
Bought this alum block, despite that it's one of the more pricey ones online, but I have to say it's great. Used it after my shave, it eased my skin and stopped the bleeding immediately. So if you're not too fussed about price then it's a fantastic product and I'd definitely recommend it.

Excellent product which doesn't let you down when you need it. Not just for when you nick yourself though. A more permanent container would've been nice.

Keeps Everything Smooth & Clean
I am new to DE shaving having grown tired of the poor quality of shave I got from high street brand razors. As a women I shave under my arms several times a week and rubbing this alum over the shaved area has eliminated any sign of razor bump and leaves everything smooth and clean feeling. I also suspect it works as a natural deodorant too. Quite handy before a gym session.

Glad I went for it.
Returning to DE shaving after decades I had to relearn and thought in for a penny in for a pound. In the grooming industry £7 is very little so I gave it a go and couldn't believe how effective a simple block of rock salt could be.
