    This is available in two variants, Eucalyptus and Tobacco.
    For years this had lanolin in its ingredients. Terrific performer overall.

    Got one today here in Greece, Tobacco scent.
    I notice that it's a veggie cream now.
    Have not tested the performance yet, but it's good to make people aware even though this does not look to be a highly popular shaving cream.

    Connaught @Paul have been stocking it for years and at the moment it appears their stock is w/ tallow and lanolin.

    My Tobacco stock is now vegetale: Stearic acid, Glycerin, Coconut & Sunflowers oils . Eucalyptus is still tallow & lanolin.

    Konstantine, this cream is excellent. I have the green one.

    It is important to mention that the Classica cream with eucalyptus is the only one with hydrogenated tallow in its composition and has stellar performance.

    I don't want to say that the tobacco one is bad, but it is not as good as the Green one, which takes a LOT of water and gives strong, velvet lather with great slickness.

    In Greece Dafnis stocks it in good price and Michailidis in Omonoia too, in higher price.

    Edit: didn't see Paul's post before! He has already mentioned the tallow one!
    The tobacco one was always vegetale if I'm not wrong.

    Edit again: I find an old photo of Tobacco that has tallow & lanolin. It is not clear but definitely they changed the formula on this one. The lotto number is different.

    In general, my experience with Vitos soaps (and their aftershave splashes) has been excellent. I am surprised to learn that the cream has gone veggie ... I wonder what that will mean for the future of the soaps?

    Vitos is a good affordable Italian cream . Some say it's better than Proraso's single blade formula.
    Too bad they dropped the lanolin thought .
