Are there soaps out there that are stronger than Asantee?

I just had my first shower with the Asantee Goat's Milk + Tamarind soap, and not even kidding but I can feel the tingling burning sensation on my legs now and a bit on my stomach now. My face is fine but that was because I was so scared that it'll melt it off if I keep it on for too long lmao. Safe to say that this soap is definitely very strong and must be handled with care, esp for newbies. (I started with Likas, Kojie San, and then the Asantee papaya for a few months to prepare.)

I've read very old posts and threads about soaps and esp Asantee soaps because the general consensus here is that they are quite strong and very good for permatan removal. Despite how still scared I am with my new soap, I'm going to keep going with it.

I could have sworn, though, that a poster said he knows of a soap that's even stronger than the Asantee goats milk tamarind, which has to be an insane soap if it exists. The poster's username was nuckingfutz, but I'm sure they've moved on from this place a long time ago, so there's no way for me to reach them now, unless I'm wrong and they lurk here still from time to time. :unsure:

So, are there any soaps that are stronger than Asantee? Just curious!

@pale-star not sure if your read this soap thread but it has great info. Even though its an old thread, the soaps mentioned still exist. I've tried so many soaps in my life but I do love Asantee soaps. https://www.skincaretalk.com/threads/soaps.40019/#post-777479

As for nuckingfutz gosh those were the days, loved him! He was in Thailand and would pop in and out when he had access and was able too. Lets @mention him and pray he see's it 馃グ

As for your question about MUAC fade peel, I LOVE it!! Super easy to use, but can be strong if your not used to acids. I didn't read all that you wrote, just saw the question about MUAC. Is this your first peel? If so tred lightly. Its a mix of GA (30%) and LA (20%) with a splash of KA and MA. Leave on 5 minutes and rinse with soap and water!

Oh I have read through that thread but I don't think it'll hurt me to re-read it again, just to see if something new pops up for me, so thank you so much for bringing that old thread back from the grave lol!

I knowwww, it just seems like he was some soap expert and I was hanging onto all of his posts while I was doing my research, so it disheartened me to see that his last post was from 2015. 馃槶 If he could just tell us what that magical soap was that he mentioned was actually stronger than all the Asantees combined... like seriously, he said it was like if the soap was a Nobel prize or something, it was that... and it was apparently hard to get even in Thailand because of how coveted it was... of course I wanted to know what it was, ughhh!

I have used peels before, very gentle ones like an enzyme one or an LA lotion like Amlactin. I think I did do LA peels before like nearly a decade ago, but I really can't stand the smell of it. Are the MUAC peels at least unscented?
All LA based products will have a scent, like sour milk. Its the nature of the beast. I'm used to the scents they don't bother me. Fade peel has a scent but its only on for 5 mins and worth the smell, think of it that way ;)
