I'm not a scholar of chemistry or anything else for that matter but there are some questions about the 'genuineness' of this Carbolic soap. First off the list of ingredients does not include Carbolic Acid or Phenol which I have learnt are the active ingredients of Carbolic soap. It is my understanding that under EU regulations both Carbolic acid and Phenol have been restricted in their use in cosmetics.

This soap does contain an active ingredient called Lysol BP which I understand has powerful disinfectant properties. The fragrance is very similar to that of Carbolic soap but this is probably a synthetic creation, nonetheless it still has a fantastic smell of Carbolic soap.

I suppose I am still wondering if this soap should be named 'Carbolic' if it does not contain any Carbolic Acid?
I look forward to an expert opinion on this matter or at least some clarification.

This soap is fantastic. It really smells strong ( youll stink the house out ) and lathers up really well. A must have for all hands on people out there. The only downside is that it wont fit through a letter box

Arrived promptly and efficiently packaged. I have an allotment, chickens and a golden retriever and also cook most meals from scratch so I need to feel confident in infection control and with this surprisingly gentle soap I do. This soap lasts for along time so is kind to purse and planet. I would definitely buy again.

Old fashioned smelling soap that lathers as good as it cleans, but the price is high next to rivals. I would normally expect to pay around six or seven quid for ten 125g bars of common or garden carbolic soap, and the Blue Power product here on Amazon costs pennies and looks, feels and smells the more powerful by far.

If this bar contained magical cleaning properties I might be inclined to repeat purchase. If it smelled like the stuff your grandparents used it might be worth keeping a spare in the cupboard. But it just doesn't. I couldn't honestly say if it was any better or worse at cleaning, or if it had superior or inferior antibacterial properties than others, though it does have a much milder fragrance than many of the soaps I've tried here and on eBay.

In addition, the seller's claim this contains the "highest pharameceutical [sic] grade of carbolic at a concentration of 1 part in three" is not only meaningless but EU law dictates you can no longer put phenol in soap. So this isn't carbolic. At all.

But it does comes in fancy paper wrapping.

UPDATE:
If you're looking for an antibacterial product the Dettol Soap 100g Twin Pack is rather lovely. Trusted brand, hint of lemon, lathers nicely and cheap by comparison.

Blokey types like a good old fashioned scrub after exertion and this does the trick. Also sterilises all the cuts and nick from DIY or gardening and such. Gives you confidence in all your dangly bits, nooks and crannies. Great smell - top it off with your favourite eau de cologne and you have a heady mixture that will turn all the ladies on! Also gives the bathroom a nice pong.
However, it is cheaper (£2.99) at [...] (shipping based on weight). My amazon purchase for one bar came to in excess of £6!.

Arrived swiftly.
Postal packaging was excellent, and the actual soap wrapper was rather pleasing and attractive.

If you don't like carbolic soap stop looking at this product - it has the unmistakeable scent of carbolic in use (although hardly any scent just a few moments after) and produces a clean lather.

I love having a shower and feeling fresh and clean. This soap does just that, and as an added bonus helps look after all the nicks and scratches picked up when gardening.

It would be fair to say it's not a cheap soap to buy - but it lasts a surprisingly long time and certainly does not feel or smell like a cheap soap.

Have been happy to use it all over and will be adding it to my regular shopping list. Regards, CW.

Bought for my father as he was harping on about the good old days of scrubbing himself to the bone. Supposedly not as strong as what he remembers but still loves the nostalgic blast whilst showering
