I think you're right Ben...may have to take the plunge...only downside is the shipping cost from Italy to the U.S. The charges are as much as the cost of 2 soaps. Don't know why but these soaps really intrigue me...resistance is futile!

Is it tallow based like Cella or P160?

Given this information on the website, I'm going with yes it's tallow based...

"PANNACREMA is an Italian handmade shaving soap, made with valuable ingredients and an innovative method.
One of the most important ingredients is a rendered form of an animal fat, also handmade, refined, deodorized, and food grade.
Other precious oils in the recipe are: refined coconut oil, castor oil, and the excellent shea butter.
The presence of kaolin, an Italian white clay, gives the razor blade a unique slippery.
The fragrances, pleasing and non-invasive, have been specially designed for the needs of a predominantly male audience."


I just noticed the scents I wanted are out of stock now, so I won't be buying any soon as I had originally intended... Sad

Any word on this soap? While the original scents are all sold out, it seems they have added two more.

The "Oro,Incienso y Mirra" sounds like a perfect gift for the Three Wise Men day in Spain (our Santa Claus day).
It seems that the person behind these soaps wants to offer different scents.I wonder if Joe would carry them...

When I first saw the site a while back, I thought it was a bogus site, seemed too polished for something no one has heard of. But, I hope I'm wrong, would be nice to have Italian soft soaps with non Italian scents

Two new scents added (the other four are listed as sold out)...

CASABLANCA:
Floral, spicy notes, with hints of sweet, amber and slightly citrusy.

ORO, INCENSO E MIRRA:
An incense and lavender fragrance, with a subtle reminder of amber.

This is great news! I may be making my first purchase from BullGoose in the near future if this works out!

All this talk about getting it, yet I haven't seen a review on it. Has anyone here used it? Who allowed our guinea pigs to have a summer vacation?

It has completely sold out again, the two new scents included. Hopefully GMofmiami gets his order soon.
