Tabac and MdC.

Haven't lived on a municipal water supply for most of 5 decades.  On hard vs soft water the only comment I can make is one delightful and well loved artisan soap maker I had the pleasure to correspond with advised my water was too hard to make good lather.  I'll take them for their word.

MWF gave me problems for years as one of the only soaps/creams out there of the many 100's I have tested.

All other soaps I have used since have never given me any problems at all.

I have never tried MWF due to \@#0\1#.

Thanks for the ideas. I noticed quite a few soaps mentioned are based on ingredients made from animal products. What about plant-based soaps?

Of the two easy lather soaps I recommended, one (Tabac) is tallow, while the MdC is veggie-based.  Saponico Varesino is another non-tallow formula that has some fans.

WSP Formula T is easy to lather and is a forum sponsor!

Barrister & Mann is pretty much a no brainer, too, both the Latha and the regular lines.

Haslinger lathers easily in both hard and soft water.

And you said soap, but in the cream world I'd say AoS and TOBS are both foolproof options, too.

When I first started using SV 70’th, I remarked that it was almost too easy  to create lather!

I'm with those who say that they all lather pretty easily. However SV is interesting in that there are differences in how each scent lathers. I have three right now. Colonia lathers incredibly fast. Tundra takes a little longer and requires more water to get it where I like it. Stella is in between those two. The Colonia and Tundra are 4.1 formula, and my Stella is 4.2.

Cold River Soap Works Glide is ridiculously easy to lather as is Martin de Candre.

But unless it's a soap not really designed for shaving they all are pretty easy, even Williams.
