Thank you, this is what I imagined to be the case.The Schafmilch is not the same as the others. It's a different formula and, in my opinion, the best that Haslinger offers. Also, Schafmilch pucks made before 2017ish are different than Schafmilch pucks made after 2017ish.
They are all terrific soaps but Schafmilch is my favorite. I imagine most people would agree. Buy some
Be aware, however, that they're not normal sized pucks. They are much smaller, but it's worth it.
Schafmilch is marketed as a less finicky Mitchell's Wool Fat.
Tnx so much, will have a look.If you can find any of the old 'tallow' formula, then that is what I recommend.
The newer formula is very fine also, just not as good. That said, I prefer schafmilch during the cold weather. But they are all good performers with very mild, fleeting scents. The pucks are small, but they last a long time!
They all perform very similarly. For some reason, people latch on to the Schafmilch and it seems to be the most popular. Try not to give in to group-think.So, I'm browsing Haslinger soaps, but I never used one.
They are really cheap, less than €4/puck.
So is the Sheep Milk the one to get... or are they all the same?
I think this is down to current and pending European regulations that are more related to public health than animal activism. Ever heard of BSE (bovine spongiform encephalopathy aka mad cow disease)? Not to mention certain types of viruses. There is concern because it is difficult to know exactly what you are buying, products may be coming from countries that have very lax regulations (such as China). Selling plant products to Hindus and some other religious groups is easier, too....Still, I fail to understand why they dropped the tallow in their Schafmilch soap formula.
It already contains lanolin, so it can never be truly vegan!
Just another example of the animal activists telling the rest of us what we can and cannot have!
The lesson here: Get your Schafmilch while it's still available!...
Wonderfu summary, thank you!They all perform very similarly. For some reason, people latch on to the Schafmilch and it seems to be the most popular. Try not to give in to group-think.
If I were you, I would get two or three of the small pucks and try some variety. Of those I've tried, I like the Coconut, Honey and Marigold the best. Sage and Aloe Vera are good, also. Scents are mild and unlikely to offend, they smell like soap.
The main difference with the Schafmilch is the addition of lanolin. The Schafmilch smells a bit like some sort of hand lotion on the wife's dressing table, though. I'm not sure what they were thinking there.
There is also a "Sensitive" variant that has a different formula than the others.
