Mitchell's Wool Fat Shaving Soap

  Get to know one of the great staples of wet shaving:


     For more than 800 years, the sheep shearers of West Yorkshire have had exceptionally soft hands. But it was only relatively recently, —in the 1930s—, that local pharmacist Fred Mitchell created a soap using the natural lanolin of wool fat as a key ingredient to help soothe delicate complexions and sensitive skin. Instantly popular in West Yorkshire, Mitchell’'s soap was soon in great demand throughout the British Isles, and is now known world wide for its creamy lathers.

Scent Profile:

     This mild, natural, old-school soap is often described as fair, pleasant, light, and clean. Shavers who craze lots of perfume and strong scents may need to rely on an aftershave as this vaguely powdery smelling soap is only focused on the performance of its lather. 

Who Should Try It:

     Any wet-shaver that is looking for a thick, creamy, and moist lather needs to check out this soap! Keep in mind, lanolin is made from sheep's fat and is not vegan friendly. Shavers with sensitive skin will be pleased with the calming and moisturizing effects of this soap. There is a learning curve to lathering this hard puck, we suggest spending a few moments circling with an unsoaked boar brush before moving to your wet face or bowl!
