  • Best selling soap in a ceramic bowl
  • Exceptional lathering and protection
  • Great for sensitive skin

It was in the early 1930's that Bradford chemist, Fred Mitchell, realized that the natural lanolin content of wool fat was keeping the hands of local sheep shearers and wood sorters exceptionally soft. That realization led him to create a soap that could be beneficial to delicate complexions and sensitive skins. Now folks around the world have come to love the gentle soap from Mitchell.

Still made to the original formula, Mitchell's has a line of soaps in a variety of ranges, but their shaving soaps is getting lots of love on WCS. The lanolin keeps skin soft and protected. It whips up a great lather for lubrication and protection from the blade. Reviewers rave about the slickness and lack of razor burn. Truly a great soap for those with sensitive skin.

In keeping with the natural feel of this soap, it has little to no scent. Just a clean, fresh experience. As one reviewer put it, "I can't imagine what I would want from a shaving soap that I'm not getting in spades from Mitchel's Fat Wool." Try this puck in a ceramic bowl and then stock up on refills from Mitchell's.

Size: 125g/4.4oz shaving soap in ceramic shaving bowl with Lid

Made in England.

Mitchell's Wool Fat Shaving Soap with Ceramic Bowl - Reviewed.

Lots of lanolin in this product formula since 1893.Price point is a tad high but you are worth it. You must try this product and give yourself a great shave experience. You will not be sorry!

Excellent soap for all shavers

I love this shave soap. It has good cushion, is easy to whip to your desired consistency, and handsome light scent. I find this is my preferred soap for straight razor and shavette use but enjoy using it for any shaving. It is very comfortable on the skin and leaves your skin equally refreshed and soft post-shave. I especially enjoy the ceramic bowl/holder. It is the perfect size to allow for the lather to fill the top of the bowl while having enough space to let the water and 'slop' go to the bottom. The soap also appears to be long lasting without being 'hard'. If you are a beginner or on a budget to be able to choose only one soap (for now) I would highly recommend this. If you have been at this for a while and want to try something different then again, I recommend this for your comparison. For what it is worth, my spouse has also decided to try wet shaving and she equally enjoys this soap!

Not impressed

Not impressed with this soap. Would not lather up using tap water. Tried using distilled water based on input from other Mitchell's users. Still not lathering as well as other products using tap water.
