What’s an Alum Block?

Alum is the original antiseptic aftershave simply dampened the alum block with cold water and rubbed on your face. The block is made from alum potash which is an astringent that prevents bleeding from small shaving cuts by closing the pores of the skin, reducing redness and razor burn thus leaving your face feeling soft and smooth.

It’s handy to have one in the bathroom cabinet if you are prone to accidentally cut yourself whilst shaving.
