I just had a shower with this new stuff (refuse to give it a title) after only 4 showers it is virtually gone, they have reduced the size by a third and increased the price. I wouldn't mind so much but the quality is so poor that you are lucky to get a bar to last a week. It still doesn't smell right and it brings my son's eczema out. I have decided to stop buying it after using it for virtually all my adult life. In 10 years time when all of pears loyal users have deserted the brand and sales of Pears are at rock bottom, the directors at Unilever will be sat round in their boardroom scratching their heads wondering where it all went wrong. Well it all went wrong when you fixed something that wasn't actually broken in order to save a few pennies. I would be interested in seeing how much the sales figures have crashed already.

Pears soap WAS an institution because it WAS a fantastic product.

I used it for years as most soaps would cause me skin irritation. I found the original soap to be gentle and it was one of the few products which did not aggravate my mild eczema.

So along comes Unilever and completely destroys this ancient and fantastic product. They bring out this monstrous new bar and pretend it is Pears soap. The bar is smaller (not too bothered by that) and when wet turns into a scummy chemical smelling oval. The smell is akin to the chemicals (i.e. bleach) used in hospitals combined with tea tree oil.

The bar (smaller) disappears after a few washes. To cap it all I now can't use it as it now contains so many chemicals (see the side of the old box compared to this new monstrous invention) it causes me worse eczema than most of the other products I have historically avoided. It badly dries out skin.

Whoever decided to bring in these changes should be shot. Having bought this brand for years (and my family for at least three generations) I am disgusted by what they have done to it. Rant over.

What unilever is now touting as Pears Soap is a discrace! It stinks,it lasts about 4 washes and it leaves an unctuous itchy film on your skin. Don't buy this muck.Find another soap.Pears soap is history.May the poor old dear rest in peace.P.S. Not 1 star 0 star rating.

Pears Soap. Indispensable. A necessity of the kind Chanel designated a luxury. First formulated in the 1770s and extolled ever since as a 'matchless' beautifier of the skin, Lily Langtry swore she owed her complexion to the amber bar. More prosaically doctors recommended Pears alone as safe for use on eczema... and it's matchless for 'feminine hygiene'. Many of us have sensitive skin. We react to other soaps - mercilessly caustic. We react to body-washes & shower-gels which once detached from their variety of advertising myths share a basic reality. They're detergents. (You might as well be using Fairy Liquid, the chemical compounds are indistinguishable.)

But Pears could be relied upon not to cause irritation. Of late it lost the Cedar & Rosemary oils. OK. A little cost-cutting. It continued to be non-irritant.

Now the unthinkable has happened. Pears is reformulated. Completely. For a start it stinks. Like Vosene. But the painful issue is, it causes irritation. A call to Unilever. Asked why Pears need undergo a total change of ingredients the spokesperson recites feebly & illogically it's to 'ensure purity.' (In that case perhaps Unilever should return to a UK manufacture.) She adds, for palliative, how 'They have already cut down on the scent...' Seems I'm far from the first to complain.

So Pears Soap is no more, and while this replica peddled in its name is doubtless cheaper to make, it's going to be a burning issue. Literally.

Here's the rubric from the original packaging: 'Each bar is mellowed & aged for three months until it reaches a pure transparency.

Pears' transparent soap seems to be among the latest to join the ranks of products, like HP Sauce and Sunlight soap, once proudly made in the UK and now farmed out to other manufacturers. While HP Sauce retains its basic flavour (as does Sunlight, presumably -- I haven't tasted it lately), Pears has been reconfigured, its simple ingredients giving way to a raspy new formula involving greater use of irritating chemicals and colourants.

The change is noticeable, even without a reading of the new ingredients, for in their experimenting Hindustan Unilever have produced something truly remarkable: a glycerin-based soap that actually dries out your skin. While I never found the original Pears' soap to be overly moisturizing, neither did it outright strip my skin of its vital moisture barrier and leave it gasping as this version does. If you have any sort of skin condition, be warned -- this soap absolutely will bring it out.

My various researches into the reformulation have yielded such manufacturer responses as a need to increase production efficiency along with improved customer "benefits" which now seem to include dry, itchy skin and allergic reactions. Had the manufacturer wanted to cut back on expensive, hard-to-obtain ingredients, Pears could simply have been made as a pure glycerin soap with only a few of the traditional ingredients (and perhaps tea as a colourant, if needed).

Such a move would doubtless have ignited controversy, but a pared-down reformulation would've retained the soap's simple, natural qualities; major selling points in a society increasingly concerned with such things. Alas, they've set their scientists upon it and this cellophane-wrapped, sandalwood-scented blob of sandpaper is the end result.
