Does Croap go-off?

#1
I purchased some croap a year ago from a very well known and respected company. I haven’t used it for a few weeks and opened it today.

The soap had become more fluid and appeared to have “fermented” with an ammonia fragrance which was really unpleasant.

Is it reasonable to expect that a soap will have a one year shelf-life?

What other rules of thumb do people apply to shaving products?

There's a thread about Wickham new soaps which mentions preserving soaps. It makes the point that preservatives should be included in soaps to prevent bacterial growth. It also points out that the harder the soap the less of a sympathetic environment it is for bacteria. You can't dismiss the possibility of bacterial growth, you can only guard against it.

I picked up some Highgrove Estate pre-shave cream from TKMaxx earlier this year. RRP was something stupid towards £30 but I think it was 5.99 for a large, very nice, glass jar full.

That only has a 6 month date which I’ve never seen before? I’m cracking through it though and it hasn’t gone off yet?

is the soap in Question an artisan or normal croap? From my experience the only normal croap gone bad was Cella(I can't say that it gone bad or go-off because the top layer went dark and both the performance and the scent was good)
I had an artisan croap didn't actuall go-off but produced ammonia smell and I don't know if we are allowed to tell the name of the company.

It was an artisan soap and possibly from the same manufacturer. I really enjoyed using it for a year and don’t really think that anything is to be gained by giving anybody a bad rap on here.
I’ll put it down to experience.
