Thanks to Carlosfergar we can enjoy this video about how easy is to make ather from the tallow based soap Haslinger Honey (Honig).I have tried the Marigold under the Muhle label and I find these soaps very good.

Thanks to Carlosfergar for the video,and yes,I should be getting more Haslinger soaps soon...

I have only used the Aloe, but really like it. Scent is not it's strong point, but it works very well.

Are there 2 formulations? Tallow and non tallow?

Shavemac site lists Haslinger as a "pure plant oil" soap, and there is a review on B&B (from 2006) that shows the ingredients on a puck of Sage, and tallow is not listed. It includes Arachis Hypogana, which I think is peanut oil, of all things.

My puck of Aloe has both potassium and sodium tallowate in the ingredient list.

Maybe they went the other way and reformulated it to include tallow, instead of the reverse, which has been the trend as of late.

Some contains tallow and others not,but tallow hasnt been removed,for what I known,from the ones that already had it.Brilliant soaps.

Another forum member just loaned me this soap (Honig), which he milled into a 4" diameter Container Store tin. This made for a larger surface area to load the brush. I took a Vie-Hive Silvertip to it, and the lather just exploded on the soap. Some of the easiest lathering soap I have ever used. And the lather is thick and super slick. This is a must-have in my den.

Does anyone know which "flavors" have tallow in them? I'm interested in picking up a puck of the Marigold, but only if it is the tallow formula.

This post enhanced me to order two pucks of Haslinger Coconut shaving soap. I also ordered a puck of EJ Sea Buckthorn SS as well. Can't wait to try it out b/c I never have!

This is becoming one of my favorite soaps. I have the Honig and Sandalholtz, excellent lather and shaves.
