Thanks to a good friend from Spain (thanks mate) I have the chance to try this old Muhle shaving soap with tallow : the Marigold one.As you can read on its ingredients this soap has tallow on it :

[Image: P1240119.JPG?m=1336861994]

So as other tallow soaps,this one have been reformulated and no longer contains Sodium/Potassium Tallowate,but palm oil,Sodium and Potassium Palmitate.

This soap also contains some Marigold plant extract and it was targeted for the most sensitive skins :

I have only received 3 pieces of this vintage soap,however I also received the small black wooden bowl which I really like :

[Image: P1240122.JPG?m=1336862206]

To make lather from this soap is pretty easy,since it behaves like other soaps like Tabac or Irisch Moos.For some reason I think that this soap was made by the same company behind other german tallow shaving soaps.I did used the Muhle 25 mm knot Silvertip Fibres,and you can see how much lather I made from it :

[Image: P1240123.JPG?m=1336862207]

So,if you arent capable of making lather from any of the Muhle/Edwin Jagger soaps (both old or new versions ) it could be that :

1.You dont even know how to make lather BiggrinW00t:abrazo:

2.Maybe you got a "dud" puck.It could be possible but not frequent.

Another picture of the lather :

The scent of this soap is still there but I guess not as strong as it used to be.Its a fresh herbal scent,but different from the actual Sea Buckthorn shaving soap.Is more floral I would say and I do like it.My friend from Spain has also told me that Muhle sold another soap with an "Ocean" scent.Interesting.

And what about the shave? Very good,but,was it better than with any of the current Muhle/Edwin Jagger soaps? No,not at all,actually the same as good as with the actual shaving soaps.Easy lather,cushiony and protective and excellent skin care properties,during ans post shave,with a nice scent.

In this case,reformulation wasn't for worst,and the actual veggie based soaps offers great skin care and scents,so its all good for me.

I would have to look for the Ocean type one...Rolleyes

As far as I know these soaps were made by the Austrian company Haslinger. The ingredients are the same of their soap Ringelblume.

If you want to try the "Ocean", you should look after "Meeresalgen".

They have introduced a new soap with ewe's milk and lanolin this year and it is getting very popular at Gut-Rasiert.de.

Our friend Oversaturn have told me the same on the spanish forum.
So the info I had about these soaps being made by the same company than Tabac,Irisch Moos,Speick seems not to be right,or maybe Haslinger is behind those soaps too? Huh

Now that looks promising! I'll go to Vienna in October - now I have something to look for! Biggrin I think that Haslinger's headquarters are in Vienna, right?

I have a puck of the old EJ Marigold shaving soap that is tallow based. I assume it is the same as the Muhle. It has been a long time since I used it so perhaps I should try it again soon.

The producer of Tabac and Irisch Moos is the Dalli-Group in Stolberg, Germany. A huge company producing detergent and cosmetics for different private labels as Aldi. They claim to be the second biggest manufacturer in Europe.

Haslinger is a smaller manufacturer situated in Vienna, Austria. Here the address for Emanuel:

Rotenhofgasse 43
1100 Vienna
Austria

Emanuel, as you will be in Vienna you can also try this address Wink:

StoBa Seifenmanufaktur GmbH
Hintzerstraße 6
1030 Wien

Great review.

Thanks for sharing a vintage soap many of us are unlikely to have an opportunity to try, but appreciate being able to experience vicariously.

Ah! Fantastic news, know any stockists? I have sensitive skin and like the idea of marigolds. Does it boast any of their scent?

Here, in the USA, or several stockists in Germany or all over the German ebay.

As for the Marigold, I have not tried it, only the Aloe vera and the "Ocean" varieties (both very good).

Angry So, now I had to order some of the Haslinger soaps...

To be more precise:
HASLINGER: Rasierseife Schafmilch mit Lanolin
HASLINGER: Rasierseife mit Salbei in der Dose
HASLINGER: Rasierseife mit Meeresalgen in der Dose
HASLINGER: Rasierseife mit Coconut in der Dose
HASLINGER: Rasierseife mit Ringelblume in der Dose

I should not read these posts - I have no space in the den and I also promised myself to restrain from 'software'.

Undecided

I couldn't resist and I have tried this one yesterday. Great creamy and thick lather. The scent is fresh and clean.

Sodapopjones, the new Mühle soaps do not contain tallow, the Haslinger still have tallow.
