This Old-Fashioned Shave Cream reminds us that shaving is a skill passed down from generation to generation and as such, it’s a thing of true value, like a good piece of advice. It’s part ritual, part preparation, all ‘you’ time. Triumph & Disaster Shave Cream delivers a great shave without any of the nasties we now frown upon. Unique aromas of old-school medicinal notes, bright, fresh citrus tones and a hint of Turkish barbershop at the back end, evoke a sense of tradition and nostalgia befitting a gentleman’s morning ritual.

ABOUT THE BRAND
Founded in 2011 by former cricket player and New Zealander, Dion Nash, Triumph & Disaster is a skin and haircare line that combines the best of nature and the best of science to produce naturally derived but scientifically engineered products that work.
The name was inspired by a poem close to Nash’s heart, Rudyard Kipling’s “If”, which contains the line: “if you can meet with Triumph & Disaster and treat those two imposters just the same…” This encapsulates the ethos of the brand – humility, honour, risk and reward. They are the values that moulded a brand capable of reminding us that acts of ritual and preparation are worthy endeavours and that healthy skin is something to aspire to and be proud of.
With a focus on sustainability, integrity and honesty, Triumph & Disaster is picky about its ingredients. They use local indigenous ingredients such as Horopito oil and Ponga fern extract blended with scientifically proven and natural ingredients from around the globe, such as clay from Australia, Jojoba extract from Mexico and Tamanu oil from Polynesia.
The brand aims to respect nature, utilise science, create products of ritual and tools for preparation – so we can treat Triumph & Disaster, those two imposters, just the same.
