    Is there any ingredients in shave soaps that irritate your skin?

    Im not sure what it is but certain soaps irritate mine. Ie, stirling seems to leave a burning/sting.

    Fortunately, those nanny state regs are not in effect outside the EU. ;)

    Do Maurer + Wirtz or L'Occitane produce North American versions of Tabac or Cade?

    North American firms who export have to comply.

    TOBS Sandalwood soap irritates me. It’s the only soap in my collection that did this.

    Why what's wrong with Shea butter?

    As per the OP ... it's an irritant. It doesn't penetrate well into the skin, leaving the effect of moisturised skin. Mushy, puffy and itchy. Most folks get away with it. Soap is better without it and there are better moisturisers. Best guess, it's trendy ... and cheap.

    Oh, and also literally every American soap ... likely down to the hilarious quantities of essential oil slopped in as a poor apology for the quality of the actual soap.

    I generally don't buy a soap unless it has Shea Butter. I have very sensitive skin. I have every skin condition going. I don't believe I have had a reaction. I wouldn't disbelieve anyone you said they had. Apart from Sweet Almond oil, I am not aware of many other moisturisers - Sunflower oil, Coconut oil.
