Mitchell's Wool Fat.  Really want to like it as leaves the skin feeling great.  Trouble is an hour later my face is blotchy and stings!!!!!!   The only soap I've tried that does this.  I suspect the lanolin but who knows!!!   Real shame but luckily plenty more to sample!!!

Fragrance oils and detergents flare up my neck and sinuses.  I prefer the natural route with essential oils.

CRSW, all iterations except for Olivia have bothered my face severely. Kramperts Bay Rum soap also irritates my face like crazy.

This is all very interesting.  A few thoughts:

1)  My wife is apparently allergic to wool.  I wonder if people with lanolin issues also have issues with wool.  
2)  Spiced scents seem to be a problem.  I guess the spices get into the micro niches and burn.  I say this is the the cinnamon challenge for the face.  
3) Fragrance oils also seem to be a problem.  These are often alcohol based and can be one of 3000 different chemicals.  

I stick to essential oils I know are antimicrobial, anti inflammatory, and don't irritate my skin.  If I find a soap I like but not a scent, I take the soap and add a few drops of my own essential oils before lathering.

I get a mild irritation with La Toja if I took my time, but I'm still enjoying that soap. It's perfect for travel as well.
