West Coast Shaving Exclusive Scent!
  • Traditional, lathering shave soap
  • Donkey base: donkey milk, duck fat, lamb tallow
  • Notes of rose, oud, & musk

This Northern California artisan, Mohammad, started Grooming Dept in 2017. With formulations that include duck fat, donkey milk, and lamb & beef tallow, as well as a vegan base, he is turning heads. Check out some of his offerings and phenomenal scents.

This donkey base creates a rich lather with a trifecta of donkey milk, duck fat, & lamb tallow. The milk was sourced from Wagen Trails Ranch in Austin, Minnesota.

Description from the Vendor

The scents which I create for these formulae are rich, complex and strong. Some of the scents are modeled after niche or indie fragrances I come across and some are my own creations. I compose the scents from various essential oils and aroma chemicals used in the fragrance industry.

Maleki has notes of rose, oud, & musk and was created exclusively for West Coast Shaving.

Maleki Soap

Grooming Dept. products are simply amazing and Maleki soap is no exception. Mohammad is a true soap artisan that has an amazing passion for pushing the boundaries of his soap bases. There is a reason why GD soaps consistently sell out pretty quickly so gab some while you can. You won’t be disappointed!

The usual excellence from Grooming Dept.

Since it's a Grooming Dept. soap, you can expect nothing less than a fantastic experience. Performance is top notch. I like this scent a lot, however I can't even begin to describe it. As another review stated, you can easily skip a post-shave product after using this soap.

A couple shaves of use

This review is mostly about the base, Donkey. It lathered it up nicely in a bowl with a synthetic brush. It's slick and very protective in the shave. I like the scent, but won't try to describe it. I would say it's at least medium strength scent and perhaps a bit more, which I like. The post-shave on GD soaps are fantastic too, even with no other post-shave products my skin feel good even into the 2nd day. I hope this helps. Keith (Keto)

Oustanding scent and performer!

Grooming Department's performance stands amongst the top tier soaps available today, IMO. The soap is easy to lather, takes plenty of water to hydrate, and provides a comfortable, super slick, and great lather. The post-shave quality is outstanding as well and the scent is really pleasant.
