A great year
Hi Rev. I think I talked to you on another forum.
Hi there! Welcome sir.
Yes you did.
Hi @bigsam1957 ...Welcome to TSD. I have shave soaps from two Texas-based companies-The Soap Exchange, and Central Texas soaps.
Hello Paul. Of the two, would you recommend one over the other?
Welcome, and Sic ‘Em Bears! Not trying to steal Paul’s thunder, but if you are looking for a home grown soap with a Texas vibe, Noble Otter out of Houston is, in my opinion, your best bet. It’s a top tier soap.

I hope you enjoy it here.
Tks. I'll check em out.
Welcome from Portugal!
@BaylorGator DID walk off with my thunder, but I won't bring that up. Anyway, he's right...but Noble&Otter is a little too expensive for me. The other two fit my budget better. I'd say all 3 of those companies have "Texas vibe"(I feel better now, I walked off with HIS thunder.)
Hello and welcome!

hello from Washington state and welcome to the den
Welcome to TSD, glad you decided to join up. We have a good time here talking 'bout a little bit of everything!
Thanks to everyone for welcoming me to the forum. Looking forward to being a member here.
Hard to say. With Central Texas Soaps, you have the option of getting a soap and aftershave of same scent. I will be making such a purchase later in the summer(Week-end Rodeo). It's been a while since I've used my soaps from the two companies, but only because I don't consider them comfortable enough for me in warm weather(although there are warm weather choices offered by each company). The Soap Exchange product prices are a little less expensive than Central Texas Soaps, depending on which types you buy(at TSE). I'd say both are very good-maybe a slight edge to The Soap Exchange for the fact that they have natural ingredients-perhaps more "skin-friendly", and, as I say, some of the products are less expensive than most CTS products. But I like both companies and will continue to buy from both. Hope all this helps. Oh, I should add that when I bought my CTS soap(Grandpa's Barbershop)the soaps still had Bentonite Clay-but since my purchase the owner replaced the clay with other ingredients. The Soap Exchange offerings have Kaeolin Clay.
Gonna try them out on my next soap purchase. May be a few months. Also thinking about trying my hand at making my own. Researching it at this point. May be as far as I go with it. Thanks for the info.
Welcome to TSD bigsam1957! Enjoy!
