Most of the creams on the market are from larger companies (AOS/Gillette, Godrej, Palmolive, most of the UK producers, etc.).  The British producers (TOBS, Castle Forbes, T&Hill, etc.) and AOS generally have very high quality products that I love to use.  I also like the cheaper "tubed" versions from Godrej and Cremo, etc.  Great scents and performance from most creams.  Why are there little to no "creams" from most of the artisan brands?  Is it that much harder to produce a "cream" in a jar/tub or is there some other reason?  Just wondering if anyone knows.

Shelf life of a soap is comparatively more than a cream by way of cream getting rancid or getting hard after losing moisture content. Again, that's a few years from date of opening the tube.

Ime soaps perform better in terms of lathering and post shave feel.

Soap containers look more classy than tubes. We pay for presentation too.

A soap gets exhausted much faster ...loading, rinsing etc wastes a lot of it. It's a repeat business for sellers.

Am sure there would be more reasons.

Let others chime in.

Fine is making creams in a tube. Not sure when they come out though.

A common greeting was 'Well, Gillette, how's the razor?' If I had been technically trained, I would have quit.

I'd guess it's harder to make a good cream. Stone Cottage Shaving has a line of creams, perhaps he could chime in. I haven't tried the most recent formula but the old one (which I'd have called a croap) performed very well. Sells samples, too, always a plus.

Ginger's Garden cream is also very good, though again it's on the croapy side.

Huh. I somehow spaced on this despite being a WSP fan...
