19th century shaving cream

Hey there, awesome people with all the answers! I am writing a series of short stories which take place in the Victorian era (in London, if it matters), specifically from the 1870s to 1890s.

I'd like to know what shaving cream was made out of then. Same stuff as today (and what is today's shaving cream made out of anyway? It smells nice...)? Or was it just soap lathered up good and fluffy with a brush?

Thanks in advance!
