I acquired some of this from a BST on another site and have had it hid away for the past 4 months. I decided to give it a test lasther just a while ago using my SOC brush. All I can say is wow. I dont know what I did, but it seems the lather just pourd in mounds while palm lathering. I know this stuff has to come from overseas, but is that the only place to acquire this soap?

Wow, indeed! JabonMan soaps are wonderful.
The only way to obtain this soap, if buying new, is from the JabonMan himself, Manuel. He is a member of this forum ... you can PM him or email him directly and he will then provide you with an idea of what he has available. Smile

Of all the soaps I have in rotation, Manuel's soaps would be THE soaps I would choose, was it the only brand I could use. I am a staunch D.R. Harris fan but JabonMan soaps are in a league of their own IMO. Whereas I load my soaps for a minimum of one minute, these are the exception. 15-20 seconds of loading produces more than enough lather for three passes. Furthermore, the range of scents is amazing, something for everybody, and for those with lanolin reactions, some contain and some don't. And did I mention post shave feel?

Well I haven't even shaved with them yet, but the lather that I got just from doing a test lather on my hand was insane. Although I'm not sure about the smell of the one I have (Terra Humane?). Kinda has a potato like smell to it. I will however be trying some of his other scents in the near future.

I have the Rose and the Lavender scent. Wonderful soaps. I agree with David, these soaps are in a league of their own.

No, I wasn't exaggerating making that statement. This is the only brand I use where such a low load time does actually work. The soap is pretty concentrated, as are the scents. Most scents fade once lathered. Manuel's soaps will linger even after rinsing.

Tierra Humeda. I think translates to "wet earth."

I don't get a potato scent, but it IS earthy. Very organic. And the lather is marvelous. This soap is all that users say it is.

These are really fabulous soaps! nd they're easy to get, even from overseas. I have several scents, some w and w/o lanolin. The ones with, are my faves. I love the Lime Cinnamon. Makes the whole bathroom smell great! Wet Earth is an acquired taste. I'm still trying to like it... LOL! What a luxurious shave with Jabonman soaps, particularly if you're using a straight razor. Terrific cushion, glide, protection - all that. I know MdC gets a lot of love, and it's a great soap but I don't think it's anywhere as rich as JM. And Manuel is such a terrific guy, too! If I had to use only one soap (which I do!) it would be Jabonman. I hope Manuel stays in business a long time!

Okay, I tried a PM but no answer. Is there someone who would PM me Manuel's e-mail address? I am very curious and hearing there are some soaps w/o lanolin and shea, I would be foolish not to try...

Thanks!

The soaps are 10.7 Euros each, and shipping for 4 or 5 tins is 23 Euros (to the USA) ... this works out to $20 per tin, if you are ordering 4 or 5.

Unfortunately international shipping costs have gone up for all this year!

Ouch. What size are the tins?

Looks like you're better off to go in for an order with a friend or two huh?

There's a few scents that I would be interested in trying for sure.

What does "simple soap making, foam filling and very
easy" mean?

Does that mean that they're almost done curing and he just has to fill his containers to ship them?

This is excellent stuff; I have a couple of tubs and the lather and scent are really wonderful. I was lucky to score a couple of unused tins on the B/S/T.
