Manufactured in: Canada, possibly Toronto

Where to buy: Online at a variety of different outlets

Canadian owned: Yes? (Per submission it’s from Toronto Barber and Beauty Supply, but could not get independent confirmation)

This is definitely a made in Canada product that is well-reviewed in shaving circles (is that a thing?) but it’s difficult to find out much information about the manufacturer. There seems to be 4-5 different scents of the product available from a bunch of different online stores. If anyone knows more about this product, please reach out to us.
