It's Been Reformulated
on January 15, 2011
First, thank you Carbolic Soap Co you shipped extremely fast and I am very pleased with your service and this review is in no way a reflection on you as you are not the manufacturer of the soap.
First off this product is not even a shadow of it's former self. It's been entirely reformulated to the politically correct junk grade veggie oil base that every other wimp manufacturer has turned their once fine soaps into. The scent is not the original scent either though it's reminiscent enough to approximate what it was. It's HEAVY on citronella instead of the truer citrus scent that went with the otto rose base. Also the scent is not as prominent as the original. Gone are the cold cream properties. Gone is the boric acid in the original.
No passenger on the Titanic used anything like this, they used the finest grade A soap made from the finest tallow (animal fat) and coconut oil. That's what grade A soap is made out of and it's the finest and mildest form of soap known to man. It doesn't irritate the skin like this present excuse for Vinolia does. Vinolia is now just a glob of saponified Crisco with some mosquito repellent thrown in after a sneeze of synthetic rose oil.
Stay away from it.
