John, I see that it (Caprina) is available at Amazon and Walmart. I'm going to try to remember to pick up a bar or two next time I'm in Walmart. It sounds interesting.

I've decided the Palmolive Classic scent is going to become my long-term preferred bath soap. It's the old fashioned tallow based very hard 3.5 ounce bath bar that's both cheap and good. Makes a nice lather and has a mild pleasant fragrance. More importantly, it's 100% as good at the task of bathing as any other bath soap. Simple.

I get them at my local grocery store - dirt cheap and like $1.50 for 3 bars. Down on the bottom shelf - got to look for them, though.

I found them at Dollar Tree. Three bars in a pack for a dollar. Bought in bulk online, and they shipped it to the store where I picked them up for no extra charge.

Been using various artisinal soaps, Italian soaps from TJ Maxx, and Kirks Castile. And Mitchell's Wool Fat

Prefer the MWF for face washing, but when my stash runs out (two or three more soaps) I will go back to the Yardley soaps you can get for $1 or so at Walmart or Dollar Tree. Smell and lathering are right up there

I do miss the bargains one could get on Floris Rose Geranium. Gordon told us about it and I got quite a stash from over the pond when he found a bargain

+1 - although we have been on MWF Bath Soap since we came back from North Yorkshire at the end of November.
