Handcrafted Artisan Shave Soaps and Accoutrements
Made with Love and Care in Baltimore, MD, USA
McStachio & Co. was created in 2016 by Alexander and Jeannie McGeehan, proud parents of two children (born 1996 and 2015) and grandparents of one (born 2015).
In 2013, Alex began his love of straight razor and safety razor shaving. He was disappointed with the shave soaps he had been trying out so, with Jeannie's love of creating handmade personal care, she started making his shave soap at home. In 2015 both our son and grandson were born. With the birth of our son, Jeannie retired from 20+ years in the corporate world to a new career in full time motherhood.
In 2016, we started McStachio & Co. as a small Etsy shop selling Jeannie's shave soaps and beard oils along with Alex's balsa strops. In 2017, our son was diagnosed with autism. The shop was put on haitus while Jeannie threw herself full time into managing our son's care. It took two years and a lot of hard work but our son finally acquired a steady routine of quality daily therapies from top notch providers and continues to make great strides in his development.
In 2019, with our son's development on a stable path, we were able to reopen the McStachio & Co. shop and will continue to offer our highly-regarded shave soaps to our loyal customers with additional offerings to come.
McStachio & Co. soaps and personal care items are all handmade by Jeannie in small batches from natural ingredients. All of our ingredients and packaging are sourced from the US. We formulate, create, package, & ship everything right here from our home base in Baltimore, MD, USA.
