What is it?
Pine Tar Soap has a strong, rich, pine scent like a long, meandering stroll through the woods. It was first patented in 1867, but was considered dangerous in later years due to the presence of creosote in pine tar. Thanks to modern technology we now have creosote-free blends of pine tar on the market to avoid the health risks associated with the original patented version. It was primarily used to treat various skin ailments and irritations. Some doctors still even recommend its use to patients today with the creosote-free pine tar.
What’s in Pine Tar Soap?
Ingredients are as follows: Olive Oil Pomace/Rice Bran Oil blend, Palm Oil, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Creosote- Free Pine Tar, Palm Kernel Oil Flakes, Water, & sodium hydroxide for the chemical reaction to make soap. I make all of my creations with an extra helping of love.
We recommend that you use a draining soap dish with any handmade soap. Because a draining soap dish will give your bar of soap the opportunity to dry out between uses. This way you bar of soap will last much longer. Have you ever noticed that the bar of soap sitting in the puddle of water in your shower has become soft and mushy? When you’re soap is sitting in water, it is slowly dissolving.
