However, there have been times where people have criticized a few of the ingredients in the old formulations. It is certainly worth taking note. Some more recent EU cosmetics standards have increased scrutiny over certain components in many products. Whether or not this is the reason for reformulation, the SLS, propylene glycol, and parabens, etc., have been removed from their products. In the process, the manufacturer appears to have spent a considerable amount of effort in revamping the product line to give it a bit more diversity.
This new sandalwood and shea version of Proraso surprised me. I hadn't expected to see this product when I was out to replenish some of my shave cream / soap stash. In fact, I didn't even know it existed until about a week ago.
In terms of performance, it still works as well as it ever has. Lathering is a bit different due to the lack of foaming that the old SLS would provide (which is why companies use SLS in the first place). It is my understanding that natural products cannot create the same foaming properties of detergents. I actually generally prefer to not have SLS in my products. Nevertheless, the lather is still great and protects the skin while retaining water. Water is the most important part of the shave.Read more ›
Of the other brands, Taylor is probably the farthest from true sandalwood and also the strongest. Cyril Salter has the best lather IMO, but smells weird, would never suspect it was sandalwood - using it is kind of like picking scabs, don't really want to do it, but do it anyway. Keep coming back to it, but all the while wondering why I am using it again (great lather?). Trumpers reminds me of mosquito repellent, Truefitt is almost non-existent smell, and both Queen Charlotte and Mama Bears smelled nice but had a distinctive isopropyl alcohol top note.
Bottom line, this is my favorite scent, doesn't taste too bad, and the lather is right in the mix at between 1/2 and 1/3 the price of the others. Tough combination to beat! Okay, just kidding about the taste...
If you're ordering one Proraso, go with the green. If you're looking for something new, the Red is a nice addition.
Overall wonderful personal care product that should be on the shelves here in the USA. Unfortunately most are stuck with the artificially colored canned goo that comes of a spray bottle. Fortunately Amazon makes this Italian product easy to get your hands on. Thank you and enjoy.

Not a bad soap for the price and the amount of product given. The Sandalwood scent it okay but the soap itself performs well. Read morePublished 39 minutes ago by Alex K.
It's a good cream, just not the best. It's too strong for my skin. Makes my face itch and gives me razor bumps the next day. Cremo Cream is much better. Read morePublished 23 hours ago by sketch201
Best shave cream there is. It produces instant lather that is as thick or as thin as you want it to be.Published 2 days ago by Yareelohim

Very rich shaving cream, only an inch whips up a luxuriously thick lather with my badger brush. Big tube is a bargain that will last me a while. Read morePublished 6 days ago by D.B. Spalding
