I have a question about soap. This last weekend I was at Target looking for body soap. I decided to actually read the ingredients on my body soap (Zest) and noticed it it tallow based.
My normal favorite shaving soap of choice is Palmolive (EU) stick. I compared the ingredients of Palmolive to the ingredients of Zest body soap:
Palm Olive European Stick Ingredients:
Potassium Hydrogenated Tallowate, Sodium Tallowate, Sodium Cocoate, Aqua, Glycerin, Parfum, Olea Europaea, Elaeis Guineensis, Tetrasodium EDTA, Tetrasodium Etidronate, BHT, Butylphenyl, Methylpropional, Citronellol, Coumarin, Hydroxyisohxyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Limonene, Linalool, Cl 11680, Cl 12490 Cl 74260, Cl 77891
Zest Body Soap Ingredients:
Sodium Tallowate and/or Sodium Palmate, Sodium Cocoate and/or Sodium Palm Kernelate, Water/Aqua, Fragrance, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Glycerin, Sodium Chloride, Coconut Acid, Palm Kernel Acid, Tallow Acid, Palm Acid, Tetrasodium EDTA, Titanium Dioxide, Yellow 10, Green 3.
The bolded ingredients are shared amongst both of the soaps.
I then got bored and decided to try a test lather with my shower soap just to see the results.
I felt it was a little dry at the end, but this could have been my error as much as the soap. I did not shave with the soap but did lather it onto my face, it felt normal compared to Palmolive.
Is there any reason that stands out that I couldn't be able to shave with Zest? I have no desire to do so but, I'm just an inquisitive mind so I thought you more experienced folks would know one way or another if it's detrimental.
