West Coast Shaving Exclusive Scent!
  • Traditional, lathering shave soap
  • Janus Tallow base
  • Notes of Sichuan pepper, pink pepper, juniper berry, cedar wood, papyrus, coal accord, sandalwood, patchouli and leather.

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.

Janus-Tallow is such a wonder that it is selling out faster than he can make it. Beef & lamb tallow supplies the base while a myriad of butters (shea and cupuacu), oils (grapeseed, avocado, mango, coconut), and goat milk build up into a prodigious lather. It also includes glycerin, extracts, silk peptides, and kaolin clay. 

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.

Charbon has notes Sichuan pepper, pink pepper, juniper berry, cedar wood, papyrus, coal accord, sandalwood, patchouli and leather created exclusively for West Coast Shaving.

The best soap period

The Janus base, tallow or vegan is, in my opinion, hands down the best soap. The face conditioning is far better than any soap, with Wholly Kaw’s Donkey Milk the next best, but still a ways back. Great slickness, with only Boellis Panama equaling it. Between this and Grooming Dept’s Nai formula and Boellis Panama, I am not trying other soaps. A+

Exceptional slickness, protection and post shave comfort

Grooming Dept’s Janus tallow base if one of my favorite soaps. The lather loads easily and produces a luxurious and slick protective lather. This leaves my face with a close shave and zero irritation. The scent is complex and addictive. You will find yourself opening the container just to smell it during the day. I have tested over 250 shave Soaps in the past three years and determined that GD soaps are really at the pinnacle of the market. Manufactured by a creative genius that is putting out some innovative products.
