I agree that the scents are probably in big part in those allergic reactions. There are a lot of fragrance oils I can't tolerate myself. Lavender for me has been wonderful, citrus scents it's a toss.. it depends how strong they are. The KMF and Mama Bear recommendations are pretty good. But for MB, really really go for unscented... maybe Sea Buckthorn. I have a few MB soaps i'm not using. I love them but I get a "tingly" sensation as soon as they hit my face so I use them only every now and then. The only problem I could see with Caswell Massey is getting any type of lather lol
How about Proraso in the white tub? (sensitive skin version)
