Okay guys Ivory soap is available anywhere for 1.99 for a 3 pack. and econmy pack of large bars in 12 pack for maybe a buck more. Ivory is a glycerin based soap with simple ingredients. So i just whipped up some lather of tabacs and ivory side by side. The lather i produced with Ivory bar soap was slicker and rinsed off my hand with less drying effect than the Tabacs. So, if anyone would like to be a part of this have a shave with Ivory bar soap and report back. If we can evaluate this together, we may have found a very good travel shave soap/soap all in one. I'd also like to find something widely available as an emergency shave soap/im poor again shave soap rather than buying a can of goo. Anyone interested?
