Talbot Shaving began as a dream to combine soap maker, Chad's, love of the outdoors with his love of wet shaving, and fulfill a creative void in his life. The result is exceptional shaving products with unique scents that reflect some of Chad's favorite places. This soap making journey is (and will continue) to be a hobby for Chad and not a full time soap company. If you can get behind that, then welcome to Talbot.
Soap: This tallow-based soap whips up a rich, slick later. It is so protective and moisturizing that reviewers report no need for a post-shave product. The recipe is loaded with lathering goodness. In addition to tallow, it boasts shea butter, castor oil, lanolin, palm kernal oil, babbasu oil, tussah silk, and more.
Aftershave: This splash will tighten, soothe, and cleanse your post shave skin. Alcohol provides the expected tingle and tightening. Witch hazel, allantoin, silk amino acids, aloe vera and vegetable glycerin give you a nourishing blend of skin-loving goodies. Tea Tree oil provides an antiseptic effect as well. Splash some on to finish your shave.
Coles Pond is Chad's attempt to recreate childhood trips with his grandparents to the home of family friends in the frozen wonderland in Vermont. Snowmobiling, first on the pond and then throughout the surrounding countryside, was a highlight. Chad enlisted the help of his cousins in bringing this scent to life. Notes of fir, pine, and balsam recall the evergreens reaching to the expansive blue sky. Camphor and eucalyptus evoke the feel of ice crystals stinging red cheeks. And notes of amber and cedar round out the fragrance.
