About Us

The Boar & Badger was born out of a new-found passion for wet shaving.

“After many years of struggling with skin irritation and ingrown hairs, I finally tried an old-school razor as a last resort. Within a week I could see a huge difference in my skin.
With each subsequent shave, the irritation slowly disappeared and I thus realised that it was those expensive multi-blade cartridges I had been using which were the cause of the problem.

I did the research and ordered a bunch of shaving soaps and different razor blade samples online and that’s when I discovered the second great thing about wet shaving – the cost saving! Not to mention the great variety of new scents which many artisanal soap makers are putting into their soaps.

Shaving quickly became a fun and almost therapeutic experience leaving me a stack of extra money to try new and exciting products.

The next step was to try and bring all these exciting new products to South Africa so that others may experience what I did… and the rest as they say, is history.” – Ludgy
