And these are the ingredients of the precious shaving cream,pretty similar than other german made shaving creams like Speick/florena/Edwin Jagger/Muhle/Anne Marie Borlind,creams that I really like.

Any word on the performance yet? I just hope they don't do the same to the soap!

Makes me want to stock up on the cream but I am not sure about the shelf life of the cream. I really like the scent of the Sir Irisch Moos brand and have made this one of the brands that I made sure in the den.

I pray they don't reformulate Tabac as well, since it's owned by the same company.

That would make a lot of people angry for sure

I love Irisch Moos cream. I just enjoyed a marvelous lather this morning with my older, mostly used up tube. After reading this post, now I'm going to have to check the ingredients of that old tube against the ingredient list of my new tube that I just received recently, bought as a backup. If they're not identical, then I'm going to make a test lather to see for myself how it compares to the old stuff.

Here's what I've learned today, about the Irisch Moos Cream. A year or more ago, I struck up a friendship with a very kind gentleman living in Germany who is a member of several of these shaving forums. He and his wife were driving around Germany and located several tubes of IM Cream (at my request) at a couple of local pharmacies. I ended up with 2 2.5 ounce tubes made by the former owner of the brand (Muelhens) and 2 3.6 ounce tubes made by the current owner of the brand (Maurer & Wirtz). I'm about 80% finished with one of the M&W tubes, and am puzzled that I'm getting great lather and shaves with it, even though Teiste doesn't speak highly of it. I've got one of the smaller tubes left (gave the other to my son). I know the Muelhens is good (that's my picture of it that Teiste posted with the original thread at SMF). But it's an obsolete product. Luckily for me, when I recently decided to stock up on IM cream, I was able to secure a number of the large M & W tubes from Paul at Connaught. I'm happy with it.

All of these companies reformulating is frustrating and it's not gonna stop any time soon.

As long as it lathers and is slick, I'll use it.

Yes,very true!

By soap, you do mean the stick, right?

I believe Emanuel did mean the stick, but time has moved on and that was discontinued long ago.

Exactly!
I wrote that in March, probably the availability of the Irisch moos soap was not an issue back then... I believe that barbieredifigaro (and perhaps other webshops) were still carrying them at the time.

A couple of years ago, they were available all over the German ebay, and at killer prices (sometimes less than €2 each). Those were the times... Smile

I thought so. Smile
I have one of these, but I need to get me a couple more... I truly like the scent of the stick (the AS not so much).

Regards.

Interesting. I never liked the scent of the stick but loved the AS and EdT when I had it.
