Sir Irisch Moos is one of the iconic German-made grooming product lines. Established in 1969 and produced by Maurer & Wirtz, Sir Irisch Moos continues to enjoy a loyal following around the world. This article takes a look at one of the most popular wetshaving products from the brand, the Sir Irisch Moos Shaving Soap Stick.
La Toja Shave Stick is named after the tiny La Toja island just west of Spain that is renowned throughout Europe for its therapeutic and healing thermal spring. La Toja has been making soap from the spa's mineral salts since early in the 20th Century and it is available in literally every supermarket and convenience store in Spain. The La Toja brand makes bath soaps and gels, shaving soap and cream, and aftershave splash and balm, which all range from $2 to $7. The original name for this famous soap is "Sales de La Toja," but I personally refer to this brand as the Spanish Proraso due to its affordability and availability.
