I stopped today at the new AoS store in Utah and I did noticed that the shaving creams have suffered a new re formulation.It seems that the sandalwood one has now fragance instead of esential oils and have introduce the Palmitic and Lauric Acid in the ingredient list.

I did take pics but are so crappy that Ill rather write the new formulations:

-Unscented shaving cream:

Aqua (Water),Stearic Acid,Myristic Acid,Pottasium Hidroxide,Glycerin,Coconut Acid,Triethalonamine,Sodium Hydroxide,Palmitic Acid,Methylparaben,Lauric Acid,Prophylparaben,Diethalomamine.

-Sandalwood shaving crea:

Aqua (Water),Stearic Acid,Myristic Acid,Pottasium Hidroxide,Glycerin,Coconut Acid,fragance,Triethalonamine,Sodium Hydroxide,Palmitic Acid,Methylparaben,Lauric Acid,Prophylparaben,Diethalomamine.

-Lemon shaving cream:

Aqua (Water),Stearic Acid,Myristic Acid,Pottasium Hidroxide,Glycerin,Coconut Acid,Citrus (Lemon) peel oil,Triethalonamine,Sodium Hydroxide,Palmitic Acid,Methylparaben,Lauric Acid,Prophylparaben,Diethalomamine.

-Lavender shaving cream (lavanda):

Aqua (Water),Stearic Acid,Myristic Acid,Pottasium Hidroxide,Glycerin,Coconut Acid,Lavandula Angustifolia (lavender oil)
,Triethalonamine,Sodium Hydroxide,Palmitic Acid,Methylparaben,Lauric Acid,Prophylparaben,Diethalomamine.


And now compare it with the old lavander cream:

and the old sandalwood shaving cream (check all the esential oils):

The creams are still made in England,but now have a thicker consistency and the sandalwood one has a weaker scent,or maybe it was just me.

The soaps are still made with tallow and in Italy (thank goodness)

By the way , I got a sample of the "new" Lavender shaving cream yesterday at Nordstrom , and the scent its kind of different than the one I used to have.I would say that this one has a more herbal note,while the old one was more "spicy",like the Castle Forbes lavender shaving cream.Also this cream is thicker than the old one too.

So, what's the verdict? Better or worse? Cutting corners and raising prices?

I have used the old AOS shave cream with good results. Looking forward to their new creams.

If they've gone to Fragrance Oils instead of Essential Oils then there's hope for me. I cannot use AOS Creams with EO as they break my face out badly.

Let me try the Lavender,Lemon and Ocean Kelp and I will let you know.
The Ocean Kelp is made in USA and has a slightly different formulation than the other creams,which are made in UK.

The new Sandalwood seems that doesn't have EO on it,but parfum , and ,when I smelled it the other day,I found it to be the same than the one with EO. Its also true that I'm not a big fan of this scent , so maybe another person who is a fan of it , could tell us if that's the case or not.
