Mitchell's Wool Fat Shaving Soap Refill

Mitchell's Wool Fat Shaving Soap Refill

$ 18.00

Made in Bradford, England, this delicately scented shaving soap was born almost a century ago, when chemist Fred Mitchell discovered it was the lanolin in wool fat that was keeping the hands of local sheep shearers and wool sorters so unnaturally soft. Mitchell's wool fat soap continues to use lanolin and other organic ingredients that soothe sensitive skin. This 4.4 oz soap has been broadly recommended by dermatologists to alleviate skin complaints. Product of England

The Fat!

I've never used MWF before picking up a refill puck here at BG.

I can see why it is so highly regarded in the wet shaving world. While I didn't get the best lather on my first go around, I can see the potential and know where to adjust next time.

My skin feels great after using this. The scent is pleasant, but light enough that it doesn't clash with any aftershave you choose to use. I'm a fan and will continue to use MWF in my rotation.

Great soap

This soap is one that’s a permanent part of my rotation. Lathers well and gives me a nice, smooth shave.

Suitable for a Yeoman

Despite the rep it has for being hard to lather, this is a great soap. Here is my MWF routine. I grate the whole cake into a two and a half cup candy goblet. After packing it in the goblet, I cover it with water and let soak overnight, then pour out the water. When building the lather, I thoroughly dry my presoaked brush before loading the soap(I prefer to use boar brushes for MWF). I slowly add water, building the lather on top of the soap. When I'm done, the brush is WAY overloaded, and there is a good deal of lather in the bowl as well. At this point, the lather is only halfway built. I complete the lather building on my face. Despite the fact that I use a lot of product every time, the cake lasts a long time. I never let the cake dry out, adding a few drops of water to it when I'm not using it daily. This sounds like a lot of work, but the results are worth it.

Great Shower Shaving Soap

We all have out routines in our daily shave. On special occasions, with a 2 plus day growth I want to stand in front of the mirror and lather up my Shaving Cream and have a leisurely shave ending with my favorite splash. Monday through Friday it is shaving in the shower five minutes before I have to start my commute. Mitchells Wool Fat, which is my everyday shower soap for some four years now lathers perfectly, non scented, and the lanolin (wool fat) leave my skin nice and silky smooth.

Wiskers NoMore
One of my favorites...

This is one of my favorite shave soaps.
There are many many more great soaps.

Hint for those in doubt when hunting soaps. Get the refill puck so you do not pay for a fancy jar or wood bowl.
when you find one you like get the puck in the fancy bowl and save the unused puck in a ziplock bag. Always seal
individual unused pucks in an airtight ziploc bag like thing. Once open make sure it fully drys before locking it
away. Try the fragrance free versions from soap makers when you find them, if the soap does not make for a
good shave the fragrance will not help.

Break in you boar brush on a puck of Williams ( I can get it locally for less than $2). While breaking in the brush
practice lathering with too little water, too much, too hot, too cold. If you can lather Williams you can lather any
shave soap BGS sells. I gather shave soap on a shaken wet brush then add water drip by drip to build a lather.

Fragrance... it is the bane and joy of shaving soaps. I cannot tolerate some famous brands and I
know better than to apply a cologne that clashes with the fragrance of a good soap.

A good lather can improve any shave: open blade (str8), DE, single edge including Feather, and yes the
tossable cartridge whisker removal things that do work for some (not me).

Have fun.
This is a classic for a lot of reasons.
