I wonder if Trumper is aware of the numerous criticisms of their hard soaps?
The Rose Trumper Is sodium palmate. Honestly I love the smell but I don’t think the lather it yields is worth the effortAre the soaps you are using potassium palmate first or sodium palmate first that you are having difficulties with ?
As apparently one is easier to lather than the other ?
Lucky you. Is it the potassium palmate first formulation you have then ?Wednesday 20210421

Was able to build a very nice lather and get an excellent shave!
Nope - Sodium Palmate. Forms a very thin and sudsy lather that dries out almost immediately if I use it like my regular soaps.Lucky you. Is it the potassium palmate first formulation you have then ?
I’m with you. I will happily buy the cream for a stronger punch of fantastic scents with oh-so-easy lathering.I have used three Trumper’s soaps: Coconut Oil (2), Rose, and Limes. Coconut Oil and Rose lathered just fine. Limes was abyssmal, but I persevered and used the puck. I have another puck of Coconut Oil and I’m sure I will enjoy it, but I will never buy another puck of GFT soap. There are so many other products which provide a better lather.
