Anybody know why these soaps start out right from the go they burn my lips then by the third pass my whole face if burning? I've tried lots of soaps and these are the only ones that do this. The haslinger is the one with the sheep on it. It's the only one I've tried.

Just my opinion and instinct:
Haslinger and MWF both have lanolin. I'm pretty sure I'm allergic as well, considering a recent trial with a soap that contains lanolin (and a history of such trials a couple years ago).

SdM is harder to explain but you might be sensitive to one of the essential oils in the fragrance, or the donkey milk, or even the specific honey depending on what the bees fed on (there are many kinds of honey: clover, wild flowers (generic in itself), chestnut, etc...)

Haslinger is the worst the SdM then MWF. All theses soaps I consider non scented. Do CRSW,Mikes,B&M ect have lanolin?

Fwiw, sdm also burned the hell out of my face. Shame because it's a wonderful performer. It was %30 donkey milk so maybe that's it

To actually know what's causing the reaction, you would have to submit to medical testing (i.e., blood and skin).  

Layman guessing by ingredient composition dramatically reduces the accuracy.  lol  For example, only two of the soaps have lanolin.

If ingredient composition comparison is going to be used. . . . .then glycerin becomes a prime player, since all three contain the ingredient.  And glycerin can cause allergic reactions.  Also, all three soaps contain "perfum."  Oils used will definitely cause skin reactions.   
 


If you're looking at purchasing "CRSW,Mikes,B&M". . . . .see if samples are offered or see if someone will hook you up with a PIF.

The Haslinger with the sheep on it is Schafmilch (sheep milk); AFAIK it is the only Haslinger shaving soap that contains lanolin.

As opposed to doctors guessing.
I already laid out that lanolin was in two of them and the potential irritants in SdM.
You don't need to see a doctor for that.

I'm pretty sure MWF has a silicate in the ingredients too. This has been removed from most other products over time.

You and I both. I break out severely as soon as I use it. Shame.

Just out of curiosity, which lanolin soaps have you used? Any particularly worse than others (from the allergy perspective)?

SMdF, MWF, and Schaffmilk.  I think SMdF may have been the worst.  I used the schaffmilk more when I was in high altitude / dry weather so I'm not sure if it had an impact.  All 3 caused breakouts.  Nobody complained online about lanolin in their shave soaps so I didn't even think that was the culprit till the end.

I asked for and received several CRSW V.2 soaps for Christmas, but was reading through the ingredients again and didn't realize they contain Castor Oil.

Awhile back I experimented a tad trying to make several pre-shave oils.  In one of the recipes I included Castor Oil - big mistake.  My face turned redder than a beet and hurt like the dickens until I was able to thoroughly wash it all off.  It still took about a day before the irritation and red-ness went away.

I'm hoping the Castor Oil in the CRSW soaps won't have a similar effect.  Will have to wait and see.

But I mention Castor Oil not just because of my experience with it but because it *is* a known skin irritant --- for some people.
