Your favourite tallow soap

#43
Today, in a fit of anger regarding the elimination of tallow from Haslinger soaps :mad:, I broke out my old Colgate Barber Soap that I had grated and added a smidgen of sandalwood EO to. Ah, the joy of a vintage tallow shave soap aged to perfection!! I envy those old codgers who back in the day could simply waltz into a local barbershop and buy soaps like this. Granted, they didn't have the wonderful scented soaps we have today, but those were men who washed their nutz with steel wool and held their socks up with thumbtacks. ;)

Is this true? Haslinger to stop using tallow in their soaps and if so when will this take place?

I have to admit, I'm thoroughly enjoying Stirling Soaps at the moment. Shame they're so much more expensive over here than in the states but I shan't complain! Still looking to trade out some of my soaps for some more Stirling so get in touch gents! :D
Which Stirling soaps have you tried?
I guess my favourites are Margaritas.....
Texas on Fire and Ozark mountains. A have a few more than I don't use as much...

The last time I checked the prices here weren't too bad but the postage was more than any other retailer that I buy from.... £3.99 IIRC

I’ve tried a sample of Magaritas. Also currently have Lemon Chill, Arkadia, Mountain Man and Piacenza. All lovely. :D
