Lately I found out my daughter is allergic to tree nuts, olive trees, and potentially by extension, coconut. Also, my wife is allergic to lavendar, eucalyptus. And I detest mint, menthol or anything astringent. As a result, my go-to shave cream made by the body shop is now off limits. I just tried a shave cream without these ingredients, but my face is REALLY angry at me for switching out for what is clearly an inferior product. I'd love to do an old stand-by like Geo F Trumper, but alas they have coconut as a fatty acid base. What is a KILLER shave cream that avoids the above ingredients but still makes a fabo lather with my top-notch silver tip brush?

Mystic Water shave soap contains no coconut or olive oil, but it does have shea butter and avocado oil.  I have read about, but have no personal experience with, people with latex allergies being potentially sensitive to avocado and shea nut butter.

L&L Grooming (grass fed Bison tallow) doesn't have any of the mentioned allergens, it does use avocado oil though, so potential for allergy is there. Here's a link:

Check out Wholly Kaw's tallow formula. Their tallow base doesn't use coconut oil (just their vegan formula). He currently only has a couple scents in the tallow base
