Mitchell's Wool Fat Soap

Mitchell's Wool Fat Soap

Mitchell's Wool Fat Soap

Originally formulated in the 1930's by Yorkshire-based chemist Fred Mitchell, Mitchell's Wool Fat Soap, to this day, is still manufactured using the same recipe over 100 years later. In the 1930's, Yorkshire was synonymous with the textile manufacturing, namely wool mills and wool sorting. Fred Mitchell noticed the effect that the natural lanolin found in sheep's wool was having on the hand of the wool sorters and shearers. Their hands were silky soft, something very unusual for a manual worker. Mitchell formulated his soap using local lanolin direct from the wool of freshly shorn sheep to capture the benefits that the shearers and sorters had witnessed. The soaps are ultra-nourishing and particulalry beneficial to those with dry and sensitive skin. Featuring Bath Soap and Shaving Soap.

  • Mitchell's Wool Fat Bath Soap (150g)

    Bath Soap 150g

    Originally developed in the 1930's by Yorkshire-based chemist Fred Mitchell, Mitchell's Wool Fat Soap is still manufactured using the same recipe that was discovered by accident over a century ago. Yorkshire was best known for its association with the wool industry, and as such had a large popluation of wool sorters and sheep shearers. Fred Mitchell noticed the effect that natural lanolin found in sheep's wool was having the hands of the sorters and shearers and developed a soap bar to share the qualities with non-wool related individuals. The result is a super-nourishing soap bar that is excellent for dry and sensitive skin types.
