Talbot Shaving began as a dream to combine soap maker, Chad's, love of the outdoors with his love of wet shaving, and fulfill a creative void in his life. The result is exceptional shaving products with unique scents that reflect some of Chad's favorite places. This soap making journey is (and will continue) to be a hobby for Chad and not a full time soap company. If you can get behind that, then welcome to Talbot.
Soap: This tallow-based soap whips up a rich, slick later. It is so protective and moisturizing that reviewers report no need for a post-shave product. The recipe is loaded with lathering goodness. In addition to tallow, it boasts shea butter, castor oil, lanolin, palm kernal oil, babbasu oil, tussah silk, and more.
Aftershave: This splash will tighten, soothe, and cleanse your post shave skin. Alcohol provides the expected tingle and tightening. Witch hazel, allantoin, silk amino acids, aloe vera and vegetable glycerin give you a nourishing blend of skin-loving goodies. Tea Tree oil provides an antiseptic effect as well. Splash some on to finish your shave.
This Gates of the Arctic scent was inspired by the idea of a fragrance emanating from the brief awakening of life in the arctic during the summer months. Chad’s friend, Josh, who grew up in SE Alaska helped create this scent. He says, “The scent notes remind me of the start of the warming time of year. When the mountains were still capped with snow. The frost still forming every morning. The breeze carrying the chill. Yet the sun rapidly forcing life to start with explosions of color, sounds, and smells.” Notes of cool arctic air, woods, rushing water, tall grass, and riverside flora create this refreshing aroma.
