Also Soap Sensations 'Capra'. It is unscented and the soap base is not unpleasant (as some can be). Full of nourishing goats' milk too!

Don't you mean 'Signature Soaps' not Soap Sensations.

They make the unscented goats milk soap called 'Capra'

Sorry. Head full of seagulls!
Yes - Signature Soaps. But 'Capra' is correct.

stirling is the closest to actual shave soap.

That other stuff has clay in it, and no offense to its fans, but I cant do well with a soap that has clay in it. Seems to make my fatboy sticky for some reason and really gums up my badgers.

I will be looking at the stirling offering, can anyone tell me about the scent of the valobra unscented puck? the valobra stick I have shaves and lathers better then Williams but feels gritty and has that stench to it.

It sounds like Valobra and Stirling might be ruled out then.

FWIW, I'd say Martin De Candre unscented might then be your best option. No clay, or a tallow scent to it.

Mdc does seem to be a real soap,

I love their idea of shaving envolopes..... had a similar idea of microscopic sample sizes I put forth to a few people years ago... The ingredients do look good.

I don't mind tallow soaps, I actually enjoyed Cela until it went rancid, but the scenting they used left the container so fast on me that tallow itself does make a scent.

The MdC looks expensive but lasts ages, someone did the maths and it actually works out cheaper than most alternatives due to the epic longevity! If you buy from theenglishshavingcompany.com you get 5% off your first order too...

If Cella worked for you did you ever try Vitos Red or Green? An almond croap like Cella, but not as heavily scented. My Vitos soaps after leaving the lid for a bit of time seemed to have lost most if not all of it's almond scent. Seems to have less of an issue for going rancid as well, and seems to work well for those with sensitive skin as well (like myself, but not as bad as your issues)

MDC Natural is also stocked by Shave Lounge

The ingredients are as follows
Ingredients: Stearic Acid, Cocos Nucifera Oil, Aqua, Potassium Hydroxide, Glycerin, Sodium Chloride.

Have you tried the Erasmic shaving soap in a container? I presume it has the same scent as the stick and if it's the chemicals from the fragrance that causes irritation then it could work for you again, same applies for the cream. The Erasmic cream & soap in a tub are easily found (eg in Savers), if you've not tried them then maybe give them a go?

Otherwise if you can't find the Erasmic stick that works for you then there are some unscented soaps worth having a look at, which aside from the ones mentioned here include Stirling (they have a few), and Signature Soaps Goat Milk.
I am pretty certain the stick & bowl have different formulations.

I really like the bowl but hate the stick.

They don't lather anything alike & don't smell alike.
The bowl is rather strongly scented.

I think the stick is tallow & the bowl glycerin......
