Let me start off by saying that this soap is fantastic (as long as you can tolerate the smell). It does a great job at keeping your skin hydrated, even during the winter months. It is worth noting that the 4.25 oz bar is the original formula from 1878 which contains sodium tallowate (animal fat) as its base. Although I do not consider this a problem, some users may prefer a vegetable based alternative. If so, go with the 3.25 bar. It contains all of the same ingredients as the 4.25 oz bar, minus the animal fat.

My girl has slight eczema and this soap soothes her skin without drying it out. Pity that the bar goes quickly and can get a bit slimy if not drained quickly and properly.

Cleans the heair quite well, but the smell is almost unbearable to me.., and it's also very strong, so it invades the whole bathroom. I thought it was going to smell like pine or something similar, but it seems to me it almost smells like bacon.., who knows why..

I have no skin problems. This bar can be a little drying, but it lathers a lot and rinses easy. I like it in the fall because I live in the city and it reminds me of brisk autumn days and campfires.

saw that many ppl said it is good to use it as shampoo, but as usual, it does't work in HK (hard water area). it made my hair sticky and oily after washing with it, but it is better than other soap i tried so far.

Very nourishing and soft. This soap feels great. Does not feel dry. But the smell is undescribable and disappointing. It smells like bacon. Why would anyone want to smell like bacon? Especially a vegan.

I read many reviews about the smell of the soap but was still not prepared. I think I have come up with a name for it. I expected a strong pine scent, but I think the best name to describe it is "forest fire". That is exactly what it smells like. Charred wood. I bought it hoping it would help with my husband's psoriasis, but he didn't seem too interested and didn't like the smell. Si that is as far as it got. I am using it so as not to waste it but I probably won't buy it again

The smell is strong but it would disappear after wash. It is too dry to use on hair. Should use conditioner after.
