For those interested...

I sent an email to Valobra last week, inquiring about future products. They kindly responded with the following:

"Thank you very much for your kind enquiry. I take in great consideration the suggestions of my loyal customers as you are, and I am pleased to inform you that I am working about the implementation of Valobra stick base placed in a puck."

Very exciting!!

That sounds great! I'll be keen to hear what scents they will produce.

Now if we could just get Speick to do that it would be great.

No time frame provided, unfortunately. But, I was just happy to get a response with the news that they're working on it!

Fantastic news, James. Whilst their soft soaps are good, they can't quite match the performance of the tallow stick IMO.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Valobra was the manufacturer for Art of Shaving's tallow based soap so we could see the original formula AoS available again (hopefully for a lot less money).

Well the circumstantial evidence, i.e. the timing that AOS reformulates and then Valobra is going to release a hard puck, certainly seems to indicate that. I would love it if they released a fougere scent version akin to the soft soap special edition they released a couple of years ago.

Nothing like a good puck of tallow!

I would really love to see AoS soaps available at a reasonable price.

That's good news. I recently grated a Valobra stick into a bowl. Looks like I won't have to do that again.

Nice performing soap, but the scent always reminded me of musty old man smell.

Hey, this whole time I didn't think P&G could do right by the customer, looks like they did this time haha!

I wonder what if any scents Valobra will offer.

P&G has absolutely nothing to do with this. They own AOS but they do not own Valobra.

Will you be offering samples? Because I like the idea of a Valobra soap, and of supporting BGS, but I'm not sure about this whole "fern shaving lather" idea.

Oh, the post has been deleted but a fern scented lather comparable to the Pen's scent would be fabulous and most welcome here.
Let's hope something does emerge soon. Not to put a damper on things but an Italian friend has told me that Valobra having a project for tallow pucks is nothing new, has been ongoing for some considerable time, yet never a date set. We shall see.
