recently i acquired two pannacrema soaps. one was an early SF version 100g brick in box and the other a vetiver in plastic tub.

I have noticed that the 100g brick lathers more easily, is softer and producers a somewhat denser lather compared to its tub variant.

has anyone else noticed something similar? if not its probably me and i need to work harder with the tub.

I've only had the tubs and not the bricks. I haven't read of any formula change and I find I achieve wonderful lather from the 3 tubs I currently have (Vetiver, Namaste and Labdano). The tubs are very small and I imagine you might be loading more effectively from the brick versus the tub, I wonder if you are getting enough product from the tub?

I was going to suggest the same thing as Ben. I have moved my PannaCrema soaps from the plastic tub to glass Pyrex bowls and have had a much easier time building lather than when I tried with the original tubs. I did not get a chance to try the bricks, but I would be much happier with that packaging than the current one.

Move the soap into a larger bowl ... It is soft enough to be formed into a larger container. That will ease the loading and likely solve the issue...

great, thanks for the feedback. i shall return to the tub try a few times with longer loading periods, if no luck i shall transfer to a bigger container.

to clarify, the lather created by the vetiver tub is not bad, just that the brick variant is uber great.

but regardless i shall try harder.

The thing about the Panna Crema is that when it was packed in the really nifty little boxes, it pretty much required that it be placed in a bowl where it could be used. Then for some reason, not really explained, it was moved into the plastic tubs with really weak lids. This seemed to be an invitation to bypass moving it, and to try to load the brush from the tiny little tub. It really isn't practical. I have some of both, and will continue to remove the soap from the original shipping container and put it into a bowl so I can use it. I liked the little boxes because they were so unique and was one of the unforgettable characteristics of the soap brand, now the plastic tubs seem to be more of a negative, than a positive. Just my opinion, I really like the Panna Crema soaps, no matter what!

I really liked the cardboard boxes. You had to pick it out and you could place it in nice bowl.

The new cheap plastic tubs are too small and not as charming as the old boxes. I am also considering to move the soaps from the plastic tub into a bigger bowl.

I love the soap, but I'm not a fan of either the box or the ridiculously tiny tub...
