Mitchell's Wool Fat Soap was first produced in the early 1930’s by Bradford chemist Fred Mitchell who realised that the natural lanolin content of wool fat, which kept the hands of local sheep shearers and wool sorters so exceptionally soft, could also be beneficial to delicate complexions and sensitive skins. A simple and natural product, this soap is still made to Mr Mitchell’s original formula, based on a recipe from the turn of the century and incorporating lanolin from the wool fat as the key ingredient.
Mitchell’s Shaving soap is made with natural lanolin and creates a great lather for perfect shaving results. This gentle soap is suitable for sensitive skin and comes complete with an attractive ceramic shaving bowl.
Product Update From Mitchells
"The previous formulation with a soap noodle base containing tallow is no longer being produced. The base of the soap is changing, but not the wool fat (lanolin) content, this is exactly the same as always. There were some formulation changes required due a change in ingredient availability and this new formulation continues to maintain the high quality products our customers expect from Mitchell’s. The quality and feel of the product is paramount and we're happy that you'll see consistent performance."
