What are the differences between the palmolive creams? I've been reviewing different creams. The creams have differing countries of origin. As someone very new to the community my confusion is based on are there real differences in quality based on the area where it was produced? I'm considering ordering a few creams to experiment with this week.

I only have two of their creams and I find them to be worlds apart in quality. I have the Italian Palmolive which is fantastic and IMO under rated. On the other hand the Lemon Palmolive I have is made in India and it's average at best.

I have two Palmolive creams. The Classic and the Menthol. I believe the Classic is either made in Germany or Belgium and the Menthol is made in Italy. Both are excellent creams.

I have a curiosity:
Does the Palmolive shaving cream can easily be bought at a physical store in USA?
Thank you very much in advance!

Basically, the European Palmolive Classic cream in the green and the Italian Palmolive Naturale in the red tube are exactly the same item, just packaged in 2 differently-coloured tubes. The 2 creams are both made in Herstal, Belgium. The Italian Palmolive Menthol cream and the Palmolive Cool cream in the 65 gram blue tube are ALMOST the same item. The Palmolive Cool cream is marketed for the Balkan countries, such as Romania, Albania, Serbia, Macedonia, Croatia, and is also available in Poland, Ukraine, Russia, and Greece.
