The founder ensures strict small-batch quality control for the line, which includes hair pomades, after-shave, pre-shave, shave soaps, a soap canister and a travel shave brush.

Soft Goat Scruff and Goatee Softener

Marketed as a first of its kind, this new men’s grooming product addresses the issue of sharp facial hair. It features a hypoallergenic pad that dulls the sharp edges that trimming and shaving leave behind, leaving a man’s face soft until the next shave. Each package contains three of the hypo-allergenic pads. The company notes that a women’s version is coming soon. Visit www.thesoftgoat.com.
