Anyone know where I can get high-quality (i.e. no junky chemical additives), travel-size bath soaps?  

Would prefer tallow, but open to a good veggie soap.

From Portugal are Claus Porto (some did have SLS/SLES) and Castelbel  are some of the best bath soaps. Nesti Dante is also popular, but Italian soaps tend not to have added moisturizers. Castelbel is my favourite. But French Shea Butter soaps from PdP and others are also very good. The only leading tallow soaps are J&E Atkinson's, the golden cologne and Lavander are sublime, and they are toilet sized.

I use bath bars from both Shannon's Soaps and Mystic Water. A standard bar will cut easily in half for travel.

No problem David. 
In addition to my post above I would add a recommendation for a shampoo bar. I carry both tucked in a standard size soap bar container or a small ziplock for travel.

Martin de Candre. Cubes are great for travel

Thanks for the mention, Ed!  +1 on the shampoo bar suggestion. They take some getting used to, but my hair and scalp are much happier now. I thought that using one would also declutter my shower a bit, but it seems like if I remove a bottle CERTAIN OTHERS will quickly fill that space with other things.

I use Green Mountain Soap (not that it matters, because there are tons of good soaps out there). However, I use a Parmesan grater to cut off slivers that will work for one or two uses. Keep them in a ziplock bag. Same for shaving soap by the way. I picked up the idea while browsing sites specialising in travelling light.

I enjoy just buying artisan soaps that I like and cutting them into halves or quarters depending on size. Works very well.

Mystic waters sells a soap sampler of seven 'guest' sized bars, if you want to explore their offerings and get smaller bars at the same time. I quite like Mike's shampoo bar.

I am starting a soap company.  Etsy should be a great place.  I've seen soap you can get at whole foods and buy by the ounce.

Stirling bath soaps are quality, cheap and you can cut the full size bricks into thirds for travel.

Santa Maria Novella soaps are top of the line! They are a good soap for travel but are veggie based. Unfortunately they are quite pricey, but they feel like a luxury product.

I use Mystic Water as travel bars specifically the Sea Salt bars as the are a thicker more square shape. The sea Salt bar also dries fairly quickly.

Mystic Water would also be great for this purpose. They make the skin feel so soft and supple.

Yes, Michelle really makes some outstanding products. My teenagers use the face soap she makes for oily skin and swear by it. It's really noticeable how much their acne has improved since they started using it.

The shaving soap itself is fantastic. I have some issues with lathering but when it's on, it's really on!
