Declaration Grooming Gratiot League Square Shaving Soap
These soaps have become an immediate big player in the artisan shaving soap world. Characterized by absolute top-level slickness and quality of ingredients, you don't get much better than these. I'll let Scott from Declaration Grooming explain some more about these amazing soaps:
Our soap base features bison tallow (rendered from 100% grassfed bison kidney fat) and lanolin, proudly casting aside the vegan title and embracing old world traditions with an American twist.
The addition of bison tallow imparts even more slickness to our already slick soap, and combined with the emollient properties of lanolin provide a dense, silky lather.
But we didn't stop there. Our new aftershave performs so well that we added the same four hand-selected botanicals from our aftershave to our soap - sea buckthorn, burdock root, white willow bark, and grape seed. These botanicals are not a gimmick - while we can't make any specific claims about them without having to deal with the FDA, we can say that this soap is extremely forgiving of poor technique.
We even made it softer than our vegan soap formula, slightly harder than a croap, so even the floppiest brush can load with ease.
Scent: In the long and rich history of traders in early Saint Louis, there is one name that often gets looked over when talking about the Choteaus and Lacledes: Charles Gratiot, Sr. Originally a fur trader from Montreal, Charles Gratiot moved to Saint Louis and established a robust trading business in the time of westward exploration.
Eventually marrying into the Choteau family, Gratiot bequeathed a league of land to Saint Louis to encourage its expansion. The Gratiot League Square contains parts of historic Forest Park; Saint Louis' Irish neighborhood, Dogtown, and Italian neighborhood, The Hill; and Chatillon Lux headquarters.
This scent is inspired by Gratiot's trade and features tobacco, leather, rose, clove, nutmeg, sandalwood, vetiver, vanilla, musk, bergamot, and amber. This is the smell of a busy day in the Carondelet markets.
