Description

Mitchell's Wool Fat Soap was first produced in the early 1930's by Bradford chemist Fred Mitchell who realized 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. This gentle and soothing shaving soap is especially suitable for sensitive skin. Natural lanolin from sheep's wool keeps the skin soft.

Size: 125g/4.4oz; 75 mm diameter X 27 mm height

Made in England.

I like it. Great protection
This is my go to soap right now. I was into the scented stuff for a little while but you can only take so much smell! jajajaj. This is a wonderfully manufactured soap that offers top notch protection and it's truly unscented. It lathers real nice and feels good on my face. I was having problems lathering it at first but then i learned that you just turn the soap upside down and the brush gets REALLY loaded in a matter of about 20 seconds. I can't say i loved it at first or even thought it was special but slowly and surely this soap began to grow on me and now is the only soap i WANT to use. I still have others that i HAVE to finish so i use them, but the scents are sometimes too overwhelming where this one is a constant good felling and natural smelling soap with great protection.

Excellent Glide and Humectant Qualities
Mitchell's Wool Fat products are outstanding and I (our family too) uses many of their soap and skin care products. There emollient qualities get better with use and begin to nourish the skin immediately. As a wet shaver I frequently shave with my straight razor and having a good glide and smoothness is what this soap does so well. Also lanolin works as a natural humectant which seals in moisture (yet breathable) and works with naturally saphonified glycerin which draws moisture into the epidermis. While the fragrance is subtle it is wonderfully clean and sweet much like IKP shaving soap or Haslinger Sheep Milk & Lanolin or Myrsol Lanolin shaving soap. Too me a shaving soap can be too fragrant, and I have learned to really enjoy subtle scents, which heightens the sense of smell to cherish a scent-note that must be searched for and then found. Yes, it is a hard soap and it last very well and may take a little more time to load a brush with lather, so per-wet for a minute-- you might want to compare with Tcheon Fung Sing hard soaps which are super hard but water interacts surprisingly quickly for a very nice and thick lather. On the straight razor side of shaving many of us go for the quality of the glide. Emulsification characteristics rather than just a thick lather result. Tallow is another attribute which seems to aid this process as well as shea butter and allantoin. (IKP alternative) Everyone should try MWF shaving soap and buy a couple of their other rich lanolin products for I doubt you'll be disappointed and you are likely to have a new favorite soap to measure great shaving by.... It's really good stuff!

Awesome shaving soap
Having moved from the VanHeusing soap that I picked up at WalMart (I was in a bind and it was quickly available) to Mitchell's Wool Fat shaving soap about 8 months ago, I've been much happier with my shaving experience. The lather is rich and slick, and my face does not dry out afterwards, nor is it oily. One reviewer mentioned a lack of aroma. While this soap certainly doesn't have a strong aroma by any means, it has a nice, clean, subtle smell. I find this to be a plus, really, as I use a bay rum aftershave, and with the light aroma of this soap, there is no "scent overload", with different scents clashing and trying to overpower each other. This soap compliments the bay rum nicely. This isn't even really a complaint, but my only issue with this soap was it took me a few shaves to realize that I need to use MUCH more water when lathering, or else I end up with dried soap on my face by the time I get to the chin/upper lip area (I shave this area last). Sometimes, I find that I have to wet my brush with a very quick swipe under the running faucet and reapply if I take too long. If it makes any difference, I face-lather with a Semogue 1470 boar brush. I shave about once per week, and using this soap exclusively after 8 months, I still have at least 1/2 to 2/3 of the puck remaining. Once it is gone, I would be very hard-pressed to even try another soap, because I have been so pleased with this one.

not good for face, great body soap
Bought this based on reviews and that its supposed to be good for sensitive skin. It turned my face into a battle ground or irritation and burning sensation. I used it twice and moved on to Proraso shave creams. I now use it as a body soap and for that its pretty nice and sure going to last me about 6 months. Bad face soap, good body soap.
