What is this mystery guk?

My tenantís bathroom sink has to be unclogged every few months due a build-up of gelatinous ook that collects around the opening and down into the waste line. Iíve interrogated the tenant about what products he uses, and the claim is ďonly glycerine soap.Ē The crud in the drain is not that. Itís black and gray, phleghmy wet slime, with a consistency of soft butter. Gross. But I need to figure out what it is because the tenant calls me to clean it out regularly. See photo. Any ideas?

Could be a hair product, lotion or soap.

He probably uses that sink to shave. Looks like the end result of facial hair. shaving cream and soap.
