Rumours spread in the Portuguese forum that the new Musgo Real products, presented here by Phil, were already available at their factory shop in Fajozes, Vila do Conde (northern Portugal).

A friend of mine lives nearby, went to the factory shop and was able to buy the new shaving soap! Also some new creams with vintage packaging, and one of the Musgo Real creams with the new scent. So, soon these new goodies will be coming my way! Thumbup:yho:

Here's the photos (by bleddyn, also a member here):

The new soap:

Side package, in both Portuguese and English:

Ingredients list:

The new Confiança creams with vintage package ("Pó de sabão" e "Pó de sabão Couraça"), despite being creams, both refer to the type of products ("powder shaving soaps") they use to sell decades ago, in the 40's or so. But they are creams, no doubt about it; also the new soap and a tub of the new Musgo Real "Oak Moss" shaving cream:

As soon as I receive and test this new goodies, I'll let you know what I think about them. Cool

This is great news. How does the formulation of the stick and soap compare to that of the vintage stick Teiste got his hands on a while ago?

Unfortunately, the old Musgo Real Shave Stick, as you can see here, doesn't have a formulation on it... understandable, since it is probably more than 50 or 60's years old! Biggrin

We will have them as well shortly too. I was surprised that there were no soap in the new scents, only the classic.

Who knows? Maybe in the near future.
I believe they are just waiting to see how will the market react to this new product before they launch it with several scents.

The price of the soap was quite a nice surprise! Cool I was surely expecting something with an higher price-tag. Don't know what will be the price in the US, though...

I'm very excited for this new soap. I'm assuming the classic scent is the same as the bar soap? If so then I may need to pick up the soap and matching aftershave along with the Harris Windsor soap.

I can't wait to try this one. Musgo is one of my favorite scents ever but the cream was a face fire for me. I'm hoping this will work out better.

It was for me too. I am hoping that I am able to use the new scents without issue.

Ah well! Since it is that old, I guess we can state with reasonable confidence that the stick was tallow based. Still, I like the scent of the regular cream. Hopefully, this soap will work well.

I'm looking forward to receive it. I should pick it up today at the post office.

At the Portuguese forum, this soap have become quite controversial. Only a few members had already tried it. Some can really lather it, and some others don't. And it seems to be easier to lather with a boar brush.

I will report as soon as I've tried it. Cool

Yohann, I can say with 100% confidence that the stick is tallow based. I met the person who worked in Ach.Brito for many years and made the old shaving soap stick with tallow.
It's strange why they switched to veggie.
