Motivated by the frigid mid-West winter of 2014, Shawn Maher began creating a nourishing, protective post-shave salve that restored his wind-chapped skin. Inspired by the response of testers, he launched Chatillon Lux in Dec. 2015. His business boomed as he added on other post-shave products with wonderful performance and exceptional scents.
This all-in-one post-shave salve would have been a life-saver when Henri Chatillon was chasing buffalo on the Oregon Trail. With one powerful salve, you take the place of moisturizers, astringents, and healing balms. Used after a shave or any time your skin needs it, the witch hazel and aloe will soothe redness and irritation.
A love for his city of South Saint Louis, MO inspires Shawn to take his names and scents from the places and people that inhabited this corner of the heartland. Chatillon Lux is named for Henri Chatillon, a French fur trader and central figure on the Oregon Trail. He lived and loved with the Sioux people until the untimely death of his wife, Bear Robe. Upon returning to his hometown of St. Louis, he married Odile Delor Lux, daughter of the founder of Carondelet (South Saint Louis). The "most gallant a man . . . as ever shot buffalo", Chatillon is quintessential frontier man and inspiration for manly pursuits like wet shaving.
This version of the salve is unscented so feel free to layer it with your favorite post shave scent.
