I have decided to leave the ad space for Noxzema intact on
the Superlather website in spite of its no longer being in
production. I am doing this for the wetshavers out there that
enjoy researching the discontinued creams and also because
it was an attempted group buy for Noxzema which in turn ultimately
led to a successful group buy for UK products that gave rise
to the humble enterprise you now see before you. So this is
sort of a Noxzema homage if you will. It's a pity this fine
cream is no more once again (first here in the US and now
in Italy) but I feel it deserves a place of honour here at
Superlather and now it has one. There was also a brushless
variant of this cream which was discontinued as well. The
livery colours on the brushless variant are reversed i.e.
red circle around a blue Noxzema logo.
The classic Noxzema shaving cream. Noxzema was a potent mentholated
cream with wonderful skin hydrating qualities. It quickly
built a rich, face-freezing lather. A bit like sticking your
face in liquid nitrogen, Noxzema was a little too much for
some to handle. NOS stock still comes up for trade or sale
in the wetshaving forums and on sites like Ebay from time
to time. Noxzema stores well and is not prone to separation.
Tubes that were manufactured towards the end of the production
run were sealed by the manufacturer and have to be pierced
prior to use.
150 ml tube
Noxzema is no longer in production.
As of April 2, 2010 it has been a little over two years since
the last tube was produced. I may have NOS stock from
time to time and I will post on the website if I do. However
the possibility of future NOS acquisitions is highly unlikely.
