I began using it about twenty years ago and found that unlike more commercial soaps it was better for my skin which was suffering from skin ulcers. Several years ago, however, the company ran into financial difficulties and closed. It was available temporarily for awhile--even from Amazon, but at exorbitant prices. I consider over $100 a bar excessive, but it was being shipped from England which I assumed was the last source of the original supply. Sometime later, I don't recall when, it was available from Amazon at a more reasonable price. I ordered a couple of bars. What I noticed was that the new bar had a distinct order...the original had no fragrance. Honestly, I can't say that it was any less affective on my skin because I didn't use it that long. Changes in skin improvement in my experience with a chronic condition are very slow. The fragrance, however, told me that it wasn't the same. I wondered if some manufacturer had bought the name and was taking advantage of the fine name that would attract a rather small market of users that regretted the loss of a product that they relied upon.
So now in 2014, with all the positive reviews, perhaps I should try it again. The only thing that holds me back is to read the reviews of those who used Oilatum years ago. They're not so positive. I wish there was someone with more reliable knowledge of the history of the product who could tell us about the new product and how it stacks up against what is on the market today.
Several months later: One reviewer wrote that this soap is different from the Oilatum we bought 20 or 30 years ago. That reviewer may be right or wrong. I don't know. However, I still find this soap to be excellent for my skin and I'm so happy to still be able to buy it.
I will continue to buy it as I used to SWEAR BY IT...but can't go that far any more. What a SHAME that GSK couldn't just leave well enough alone.
