My Pine Tar Soap is a specially formulated recipe I created for troubled skin. I use a blend of Pine Tar, Olive Oil, Shea Butter and Castor Oil. Then add a blend of pure essential oils of tea tree, lavender,and rosemary. The scent of pine tar does over ride the essential oils and smells woodsy and smokey. This is truly a wonderful soap for problematic skin. Customers have told me this bar works great on eczema, dermatitis, dry skin, psoriasis, acne and even poison ivy.
PINE TAR SOAP HISTORY
Pine Tar is produced by carbonizing pine wood using high heat. Pine Tar has a long history, it was used as the primary wood preservative in shipping before modern preservative methods were introduced. It was (and still is) used on horses hooves to help keep them moisturized. Medicinally, it has been used for at least 2000 years to treat skin conditions for what people thought were soothing and antiseptic properties Nevertheless, the demand for good, naturally made Pine Tar Soap is growing.
Use on scalp and body as you would use any other soap. Keep dry between uses will allow the soap to last much longer. If you experience any unwanted reaction discontinue use.
Ava Quinn's soaps are completely vegetable-based with no animal fats added. Our own recipe consists of saponified olive oil, coconut oil, soybean oil and shea butter. I have a handful of soaps that do not contain soybean as well.
