Pine Tar Natural Soap
Pine Tar has been used as an additive to soap for centuries. It is reputed to help with skin conditions such as eczema, dandruff, psoriasis, and other itchy skin conditions. In addition to pine tar, we use an essential oil blend in an attempt to help balance the natural aroma of the pine tar.
This soap is an all-natural, cold process soap made with 100% pure essential oils. In general, aromatic plants can be boiled to release their essential oils, which are then captured and concentrated to make essential oils. Olive oil, coconut oil, sustainable palm oil, and castor oil, along with glycerin that is a byproduct of the saponification process (chemical reaction that makes soap) all attribute to the moisturizing properties of this soap. It is 100% biodegradable, with nothing artificial, nothing synthetic, no detergents, and no GMO's; just wholesome ingredients. Treat yourself to this affordable luxury; your skin and the Earth will thank you!
Each bar is handmade and will vary slightly in weight from bar to bar. These bars weigh approximately 4.5 ounces each after curing for at least 6 full weeks. Because of the handmade nature, please allow for slight variations in color and/or size.
