Thanks again to all who have been so supportive of Desmond's Barrow the last few months. I've gotten lots of helpful feedback that I very much appreciate. I hear all of you.

I want to take a moment to speak to a common enquiry or comment that I've received - and emphasize that DB soaps are formulated with essential oils or other natural components wherever possible.

Fragrance oils are used very sparingly - currently the only product that has one is Mossly Lime. I do this because it's my preference to work with essential oils, which I personally tolerate better than most fragrance oils; and also because I think there's a place in the market for this kind of product.

As most of you know, any fragrance, "natural" or otherwise, can cause sensitivities when used improperly. Essential oils generally don't have as much intensity as fragrance oils; and using EO's in safe concentrations often means the scents will be less prominent.

So please be aware that Desmond's Barrow soaps are likely to be perceived as relatively lightly scented, even though I find the scents thoroughly "there" from the start of a shave through to the finish. Maybe it's because I stick to lightly scented products in general.

Thanks a lot and if you made it to the end of this, you have my deepest admiration as well as my appreciation!

There is definitely a market for EO soaps. I'm glad there are makers out there who make this a focus (though I also sometimes use soaps with fragrance oils too). Nice to have options.
