Longlasting - Skinloving - Ecofriendly
Pine Tar has been used traditionally for a lot of skin conditions (like psoriasis, eczema, flaky scalp and dandruff and others).
For this soap we used Stockholm Tar (pine tar) at 20%.
Scented with: Rosemary and Lavender Essential Oil
The Stockholm Tar has its own very smokey smell, which is pretty prevalent in the soap.
Saponified oils: (Tallow, Pine Tar, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Castor Oil, Refined Organic Fair Trade Shea Butter). Water, Glycerine*, Essential oil, Activated charcoal
Essential Oils: Rosemary + Lavender
*Please note that I don't put any extra glycerine into the soap - this is just the glycerine that is created naturally during the soap making process.
According to NZ labelling rules the final ingredients of a product have to be listed.

|Essential Oils||It's important to note that while essential oils have gained popularity for their natural origins, they can be potent and should be used with care. Essential oils may trigger allergies or skin sensitivities in some individuals, and their usage often requires dilution and proper knowledge. Which is why we’re very careful in our usage of them and often prefer to use Fragrance oils. We adhere to European safety regulations and never put more than 3% into our oils and usually use a mix of Essential oils to really be on the safe side here. As with our fragrance oils, we only buy from reputable sellers.|
