Chatillon Lux Colonia Balsamica Post-Shave Salve
$15.50

Instead of carrying a satchel full of products like moisturizers, astringents, and healing balms, we combine everything into one product: our post-shave salve. The moisturizing properties of the glycerin and lanolin reinforce the all-around goodness of shea butter, avocado oil and coconut oil. After scraping your skin with cold, hard steel, witch hazel and aloe vera sooth irritation and battle redness. 

Additionally, our bearded brethren will find that the post-shave salve makes for an excellent beard balm that makes the beard soft as a rabbit's pelt while eliminating itchy or dry skin underneath. 

When Henri Chatillon was chasing buffalo on the Oregon Trail, he would have appreciated the all-encompassing powers of the Chatillon Lux salve. And since a dime-sized dab is all you need: a little bit goes a long way.

Instructions for use: Take your trigger finger and scoop a dime-sized amount (or about otter-paw-sized, if you are Henri Chatillon), then rub it between your palms until it reaches body temperature. Massage it into your freshly shorn, still damp skin. Make sure you take the time to really work it into damp skin for 45 seconds to a minute, which helps with absorption and allows you to enjoy the blooming scent. Depending on the dryness of the skin, the absorption time will vary. 

Shipping Notes: During warm weather, the salve may melt if the carrier leaves it in the sun or directly exposed to heat. To try to avoid any adverse effects, place the salves in the refrigerator for a few hours when they arrive during the summer months. 

 

Scent: Once again this spring and summer, we will be featuring our seasonal scent, Colonia Balsamica. Back by popular demand, this is based on a traditional Italian Colonia scent with some twists inspired by Saint Louis’ Italian neighborhood, The Hill.

This neighborhood, home to many immigrants from Lombardy and Sicily, is where baseball Hall of Famers Yogi Berra and Joe Garagiola grew up down the street from renowned broadcaster Jack Buck. In the midst of beautifully manicured yards and bocce ball courts, the neighborhood features many amazing restaurants, both unassuming and high-end fancy, that serve traditional Lombardi and Sicilian cuisine. Before they made the major leagues, these two future stars bussed tables to help out with their blue-collar families.

 Colonia Balsamica takes the luxurious Colonia scent and adds an herbal, grassy twist as a tribute to the hard-working families of the neighborhood who wanted to provide an opportunity for their children to achieve the American dream.

This scent will be available until La Quatrième Ville returns to the lineup this fall.
