Tallow based soaps: who make em'?

Post by Teuton »

What brands are still using tallow? Musgo has completely switched over...

Thanks.

Bath soaps? Well, as far as high end ones go ( plenty of supermarket level ones are still tallow, including the quite good US made Yardley ), Vinolia, Santa Maria Novella, Valobra, Rance ( maybe ), are the ones which spring immediately to mind. I'm sure there are a few others.

I believe Mitchell's Wool Fat soap is still tallow based as well.

Yes, those two also, and maybe Tabac, if they still offer a bath soap.

The cheap Arko shave sticks and P.160 are also tallow based.
84.3% of statistics are made up on the spot.

Erik, Yes, but we're considering bath soaps here, not shave soaps.

How does the Mitchell's stack up? If I am ordering from suffolk supplies, they have a 150 g bar for like $6

It's extremely nice soap. It does have quite a bit of lanolin in it. I used it for a while and liked it very much, but decided it was too expensive to keep buying it indefinitely.

Sam, It's a superb bath soap. I'd be using it regularly ( along with the Vinolia ) if I didn't have that lanolin sensitivity issue. Great stuff.
