Which shaving soaps are available as refills ?

HI everyone.

I am trying to become more green and eco friendly. One of the ways in which I can do this is to start using soap refills rather than those with tubs. I have seen YT videos showing the "bain marie" melting method for glycerin soaps and the "cheese grater" method for tallow soaps.

I know that Geo F Trumper, DR Harris and Tabac make soap refills. Are there any other companies that do refills ?

Thanks in advance.

If you purchased kilos - Cella, Vitos, Mondial, TFS - you'd be using a soap on automatic refill. I quarter my block, pressing a quarter into a French onion soup bowl. Same bowl, VERY eco-friendly, no melting or grating needed.
 
Just to add to the info above, Mike’s Natural also sells refill pucks. He doesn’t always have all scents in stock on his website but New England Shaving carries a few varieties as well.

I just got an Ogallala soap, which comes in a box and is wrapped in plastic, but the soap is larger than most, so it will last longer than most. If you're doing a life cycle assessment on a product, you'll want to consider the footprint of not just the packaging but also the shipping. So a naked or paper-wrapped puck you buy at the farmers market down the street will be the best; a paper-wrapped puck from overseas will be worse than a local puck wrapped in plastic. A box plus plastic is overkill, but if it's a huge honkin' loaf of soap, that mitigates some of the effects.
 
Stirling and Mikes jump to mind. I have purchased refill pucks from both, and they are soft enough to just press right into a jar and flatten out with your fingers. Not to mention two of the best bang for your buck artisan soaps around :)
