Grooming Dept Shaving Soap, Valencia
- Traditional, lathering shave soap
- Vegan base
- Notes of orange juice, orange peel, & orange blossom
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.
The Grooming Dept’s newest offering, Janus-Vegan, is such a wonder that it is selling out faster than he can make it. A myriad of butters (shea, cupuacu, and mango) and oils (grapeseed, avocado, and coconut) build up into a prodigious lather. It also includes extracts, kaolin clay, and vitamin E. You can’t get much more in this soap!
If you dig a citrus pick-me-up, you're going to dig this scent. Valencia is like diving head first into a mimosa. Notes of orange juice, orange peel, and orange blossom leave no part of the fruit behind. Just a hint of petitgrain and cedarwood keep it from being to one-note, and give is a masculine undertone.
