  • 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.

Size: 4oz

Fantastic citrus, top tier performance

This soap smells like fresh Valencia oranges, rind and all, and is delicious. It is strongly scented and pairs great with just about any citrus post-shave. The Janus vegan recipe is astonishingly good, it gives even the best tallow soaps a run for their money and I would choose it over most.

Great as always

This was my first vegan Grooming Dept soap. Performance was as good as the tallows, which is to say great. Thick, rich, slippery, protective lather. Really nice orange scent.
