Grooming Dept Shaving Soap Veritas
- Traditional, lathering shave soap
- Lusso base
- Notes of cocoa, tobacco, leather, cognac, castoreum, tonka bean, osmanthus, & patchouli
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 classic Italian type soap base, Lusso, is tallow-based with lots of cupuacu butter and coconut oil. It has a particularly high level of cushion to protect your sensitive skin. It also has jersey cow's milk from St. Benoit Creamery. It is noticably denser than other soap bases and can handle a lot of water. Interestingly, it has the fewest ingredients of all his soap bases but boy does it deliver.
Truthfully, this Veritas scent is a complex masculine delight. Rich notes of cocoa, tobacco, leather, and cognac speak to your vices while tonka bean, osmanthus (a flower with a fruity aroma) and patchouli call on your natural virtue. This one has it all.
