Country of Manufacture: England
Type: Hard Soap
Mitchell's Wool Fat Soap was first produced in the early 1930s by Bradford chemist Fred Mitchell who realised that the natural lanolin content of wool fat, which kept the hands of local sheep shearers and wool sorters so exceptionally soft, could also be beneficial to delicate complexions and sensitive skins.
A simple and natural product, Mitchell's Wool Fat Soap is still made to Mr. Mitchell's original formula, based on a recipe from the turn of the century and incorporating lanolin from the wool fat as the key ingredient.
These are very gentle products particularly soothing to sensitive skins, often been recommended by members of the medical profession to help alleviate certain skin complaints.
From its early loyal following of mainly local customers, the reputation of Mitchell's Wool Fat Soap has grown and it is now in great demand not only in the British Isles but in Europe, Australia, Japan and the USA.
In my experience this soap needs a little less water than other hard soaps I’ve tried. I have been using it with a synthetic brush with great results . Makes a great thick lather with enough in the brush for at least 2 passes.
Nice & creamy, it smells good too.
I see why this soap has been around for over 100 years. The lather is thick and smooth. I bloom the soap first and used the PAA Prickly Pear preshave soap to form an amazing lather. I do have soft water; which helps a lot. I suggest getting this soap for your shave den; if anything, for the history.
This works really well and very slick and lubricating and long lasting. Lathers up really fast on the puck-today I lathered it in a separate bowl and seemed to take a little longer, but ended up with a huge amount of lather. I'm anxious to see how long the puck lasts. Only drawback is it leaves a lot of scum in the sink to scrub out, but oh well, maybe I'll have a cleaner sink for now on.
There's a reason this shave soap hasn't changed in 80 years: IT WORKS!
This is a good quality soap and makes the razor glide well but I wish it had a mint or menthol component. I have been adding drop or two of tea tree oil to my shaving scuttle and it makes a big difference.
very nice soap i did have to trim some off the outer edge to get in my mug..I have 12 different mugs wouldn not fit in any of them...
I very rarely give a 5 stars so this is why it is 4 stars. It meets my expectations in every way. 5 would be if i got a free back massage, which sadly this bar of shaving soap does not have that feature. So yes, this is another great shaving product from Razor Emporium. Do recommend it, especially for sensitive skin. Yes even us men suffer this from time to time.
Nice soap, I am new to DE shaving but this soap is something special.
