Pine tar has antipruritic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. It's been known to help soothe dry, itchy and inflamed skin caused by a variety of skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, insect bites or dry winter weather. 

Our simple and gentle pine tar soap does not contain essential oils but does have a deep, smoky and slightly medicinal scent as a result of the pine tar. Use this healing bar as you would regular body soap.

More about Pine Tar:

Pine tar is a sticky, resinous substance extracted from the burning of pine wood under extreme heat. Pine tar has played a role in medicinal remedies for over a thousand years, predominantly in Scandinavia but was even known as far away as Greece and was described by Hippocrates around 2000 years ago. Sailors, carpenters and baseball players may be familiar with pine tar for its more recent uses as a natural preservative that protects wood and rigging from a harsh climate or for improving grip on baseball bats.

Natural Scent

An uplifting blend of classic lavender with refreshing clementine and a hint of enchanting Egyptian Rose

Skin Benefits

Pro Vitamin B5 (Panthenol) is a powerful humectant that helps to improve hydration, reduce water loss and helps maintain skin elasticity and softness

Safflower Oil* (Carthamus tictorius) is one of the best plant oils for moisturizing and it also absorbs rapidly without clogging pores

Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis) is a vitamin-rich plant well known for its ability to speed up wound-healing, help repair damage caused by the sun and hydrate the skin

Camellia Oil* (Camellia oleifera) is similar in structure to the skin's natural oil (sebum) and penetrates quickly into the deepest layers on the skin. It is cold-pressed from the seeds of the green tea plant 

Arrowroot Powder (Maranta Arundinaceae) comes from a tuber and has a dense nutrient profile making it a powerful wound-healer. It gently absorbs oil which imparts a silky, non-greasy teture to this lotion
