Ohh man! When I heard people mention that they experienced redness due to a soap, I didn't think they meant it was actually flushed looking.

No itch. Light burn.

I rinsed well, covered with a think coat of Kyovu, and it slowly went away over 30 mins or so

It happened to me with ABCBA. I never had a reaction like that before, but now I just avoid almond soaps in general.

I've had reactions to soaps that have Bergamot and soaps that have a lot of Lavender in them, but never an almond soap before.

Glad it cleared up for you. The reactions I've had can last several days to a week.

That would suck. Hard. Sorry to hear that. I love ABCBA. I was placing an order for RR soaps last night, but skipped the P-160 because I had seen a few posts about folk with problems like this. I thought it was pretty much just a problem with the P-160. I am thinking according to this post that it is almond in general that is causing the problem for some of us?
I'm also thinking if I have no problem with the ABCBA, then I might have been OK with the P-160.
Oh well, Cella's on the way, instead.

That could be a number of things, unfortunately.
Good thing there are so many other soap options! Smile

I had a problem with ABCBA,burning and itchy eyes. Lasted about half an hour. P160 stings a little but nothing like the ABCBA. Otherwise, for me P160 is a great shave but I am not going to pursue anymore almond scented soaps!

I get irritation with every almond soap I've tried, but actually the P160 was lighter than most. I still got rid of it though. Too many soaps to try to keep any that irritate my face (with is unfortunately quite a few in my case).

I read of a lot of people having similar reactions with this same soap. I had a crappy reaction myself to their bar soaps. Only thing I can think of is low quality ingredients and too much Fragrance.

Note, on skin deep (ewg), Parfum scores an 8 which means its a very high hazard ingredient. It is most certainly the culprit to your unfortunate situation. It also seems to be a mild case of Dermatitis, which fragrance mixes have been associated with.
