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 soap 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 favorite bowl or get this soap in a ceramic bowl from Mitchell's.
