What's new

What shaving soap will still be around a hundred years from now?

Are you surprised that people who do traditional wet shaving get pissy about manufacturers and sellers trying to be trendy and appease nonbuyers?
I'm not massively enthusiastic about the reformulation of Vitos Red & Green. I have a suspicion Cella might be next. As they are croaps, there seem to be a few reports of them going off in the long run so they aren't ones that can be 'hoarded' like some others.

If the German shave sticks (Tabac, Wilk Sword, Palmolive, Speick) are reformulated, I may as well just grow a beard and live in the forest.

In 100 years time if you dont want your beard to grow you will just get your DNA modified. Or get it modified to grow much faster so you have to shave 4 times a day. So you can get through all the soap your grandfather on B&B amassed.

I personally don't care if soap is tallow, palm, coconut based or a detergent. I evaluate the performance with my skin and value for my budget. What annoys me is ideology and political tribalism permeating in every pore of our lives, even freaking shaving.

Agree entirely.
 
Weird thought: It's entirely possible that shaving soaps and brushes will once again become the norm. Was surprised to find vinyl records on sale again, along with turntables, and they may pass CD sales this year (didn't see a comparison to streaming and MP3). Ten years ago, it looked like vinyl would be completely gone by now.

So who knows? If vinyl can come back, why not brush and soap?
