Any ideas?  

I have been using Bordeaux by Soap Smooth, out of California, but, the local shoppe might be carrying this no longer, once they sell the last of their current stock.  

So, does anyone have any suggestions for a replacement?  I only use fragrance & dye free, pure white soap and cream.  This is due to allergies.  

Thank you, in advance.

I'm sure others will chime in but one of the best performing soaps I've used - Valobra - now comes unscented in puck form (formerly, shave sticks only).  Phil's shop carries it.  Good luck!

Valobra, P&B, Mystic Water, L&L and Mike's are very good soaps for those of us with allergic reactions to scented soaps. 
Less great in terms of skin reactions but fantastic performers are CRSW and Jabonman tallow. 
Stay away from Meissner Tremonia's false advertising.

Los Angeles Shaving Soap Co. has an unscented soap with the same ingredient list as the Soap Smooth Bordeaux. Similar to Soap Smooth and LASSCo and a bit more expensive is Sampson's All Natural. For this one, contact the factory directly and ask for the true unscented w/o EO (if you like it enough, stock up because they'll be discontinuing it when the current stock runs out). Big jars that last forever.

The Sampsons website gives you the option of ordering an entirely unscented soap, minus the small and hardly noticeable dose of EO they use in their regular version. I contacted the factory as suggested and was told they had only a few jars left and wouldn't be producing more. I didn't ask why but assume it's because they don't sell a lot. I haven't stocked up myself but should since it's similar to MdC unscented only much less expensive.

Thanks. I have their unscented soap. I contacted via email to order and didn't know it was a formulation they offered and stocked. IME, it is a very good performer, not that great for my skin though.

If Tallow + Steel make an unscented soap, get it.
I recommend Barrister & Mann, LA Shaving, XPEC.

The unscented version smells kinda funny, like raw cocoa. IMO its okay.
