Smart girls have informed me not to use bar soap on the face. The tallow drys the face skin (and clogs pores?). They recommend liquid soaps for the face (ones meant for the face), because tallow is the ingredient that gives soap their solid form.
There are glyserine soaps that are solid. My working assumption is a glyserine soap bar can be solid without the use of tallow.
Roughly how many of these shaving soaps use tallow? Are they all glyserine based?
If someone could clear this up for me I'd apprieciate it.
Sorry for the spelling.
