I recently purchase California Barber (vegan) and Field and Stream (tallow). They are both fine soaps worthy of purchase that I would order again.

The owner, Robert Phillips has been in buisness since 2012. I have no idea why more folks are not talking about his products. He has a really good tallow formula but his vegan formula is excellent. I like his vegan formula better than PAA for example. If you have never tried his products I would encourage you to do so. Both formulas lathered easily and presented no issues during the shave.

California Barber: I would venture a guess that most folks would like this scent. A non-powdery barbershop that has a cologne nature to it. Love this scent.
Ingredients: Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Shea Butter, Castor Oil, Potassium & Sodium Stearate, Water, Bentonite Clay, Vegetable Glycerin, Potassium & Sodium Hydroxide and Fragrance Oils.

Field and Stream: This is not a sweet scent. It reminds me of when I was a kid hunting crayfish in the neighborhood creek. I can smell the outdoors, specifically standing by a river with a nice coffee note pushing through. I can also smell a small hint of lavendar. This soap would be a fun purchase for anyone who longs for the outdoors.
Ingredients: Water, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Shea Butter, Potassium & Sodium Tallowate, Potassium & Sodium Stearate, Vegetable Glycerin, Potassium Hydroxide, Sodium Hydroxide, French Green Clay, Sage, Fragrance & Essential Oils.

KONA Colada: if anyone has tried this soap please comment below. It is a blend of Kona coffee and coconut.

Finally, I don't know Robert beyond being a customer. I bought one of his bomber brushes and he tossed in a sample of Cali Barber along with a discount code for a future order that I used for the above.

I have the Blackland soap that Shane partnered with Local Gent on- agree that it's a solid soap that gets very little air time.

Like kwsher said, I partnered with Robert. Good guy with good stuff. I do wish his tubs had a larger diameter, but the product within is excellent.

It's amazing how many new companies there are making soaps and creams. In the last 2 months I have purchased several soaps and creams I have not heard of before and I like them all. Thanks for the heads up regarding Local Gent Shaving Company I have not heard of them before but I plan on trying their products. It appears they are located here in California. Thanks for your reviews.

We have just updated our line up to include an even wider mouth container for our soaps and creams I think you would love.
