Colgate Cup Soap

Colgate had a long history of making shaving soaps. This particular puck probably hails from the 1960s. Latter on, probably in the 1970s, it was reformulatd and marketted as ‘Mug Soap’ instead of‘Cup Soap’. 

The Cup Soap variant is golden. It is a tallow based soap that bore zero pomp and circumstance in it’s packaging. But oh my - it does deliver - oh yes it does.  

These pucks are notoriously very dry so I suggest hydrating them a bit. If you are prone to grating up soap pucks, do not do that until after you hydrate them.
