Mitchell's Original Wool Fat Soap

Mitchell's Original Wool Fat Soap

$29.98
For more than 800 years, the sheep shearers of West Yorkshire have had exceptionally soft hands. But it was only relatively recently, —in the 1930s—, that local pharmacist Fred Mitchell created a soap using the natural lanolin of wool fat as a key ingredient to help soothe delicate complexions and sensitive skin. Instantly popular in West Yorkshire, Mitchell’'s gentle soap was soon in great demand throughout the British Isles, and is often recommended by physicians to help alleviate certain skin complaints. Wash your hands with it. Smell its fresh aroma. Take a luxurious bath. You'’ll be pleased. Set of 3 large, bath-size bars, 5 1/4 ounces each, individually wrapped in a gift box.

Surprisingly Good Value
The price is a bit steep, but the soap is a good value.
I normally either buy mild glycerin soap, or make my own, due to many allergies. This soap is not only gentle on my skin- producing no new rashes or hives- but it cleared existing ones! The bars do last quite a while compared to what I have been using, as well. And it had none of the unpleasant odor that one reviewer had made me wary of. Worth the expense.

Love my soap!!
I first encountered Mitchell's wool fat soap from a place called the Curiosity Shop in Aiken, SC, USA and fell in love with it. Since this place no longer carries this item, I was devastated!! Then I found it in the BBC Shop catalog and happy days are here again!! Woo hoo!! Love, love, love this soap; smells great and feels good. I like that it is relatively free of icky chemicals and supports a local business.

Smells delicious
The soap is a long-delayed birthday present for my wife which has now become a Christmas present so can't really comment on the quality of the product just yet.

good except for packaging
I love this soap, it is truly amazing what it does to your skin. I feel so soft and comforted after I use it. My only complaint is that I ordered this with the view to using one bar and then sending the other two out as gifts for friends. However the packaging wrapped around the soap, which was half the gift as it is so beautiful, stuck to the top of the plastic container it came in and ripped.. Each soap bar had a hole in the packaging. Couldn't give as a gift so am going to use it all myself and maybe order again for friends if company can fix this problem.

Gentle soap
This soap is gentle on the skin and is not drying, so I use it as both a hand and face soap. It has a light fragrance which makes it easy for me to use as I am very sensitive to perfumes.
