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.
If you want to experiment with a slick soap, then this is the base for you! With a base of duck fat and a plethora of oil/butter/extracts, this is one to write home about. This is a thirsty soap but add the water slowly as your lather will get slicker with more hydration. PRO TIP: And don’t bloom the soap.
If Kulfi brings to mind Indian cuisine, spices, and frozen dessert, then you are well on your way to understanding this aroma. If it doesn’t, then one whiff of this soap helps you understand Kulfi. Kulfi is a name given to a frozen dairy dessert from Indian – rich, dense, and creamy, like a good lather. This stuff might smell good enough to eat, but we don’t recommend it. Notes of rose, cardamom, coconut, sandalwood, saffron, and vanilla will envelop your senses in a gourmand display.
