What is Swanson Ultra Pine Tar Soap?

You’re probably wondering why, of all life’s little amenities, your choice of soap should make any difference? After all, you’ve made it into adult life without ever having to really question it before, so why now and does it really make a difference?

A lot of us nowadays use antibacterial soap to guarantee cleanliness that is free from infections. Of those antibacterial soaps, around 75% use a chemical called triclosan (or similar). Originally used exclusively in hospitals, there is now a growing concern that chemicals like these are actually bad for your health in sustained doses.

  • Unlike antibacterial soaps it doesn’t contain any chemicals
  • Committed to the RSPO roundtable on responsibly sourced Palm Oil to protect the environment
  • Can offer a great natural treatment for Acne and Psoriasis

Not only that but chemicals, like triclosan are being constantly flushed down our sinks and into our water supplies. The effects on our overall health and environment could be massively detrimental in the long run.

Swanson Ultra Pine Tar Soap offers you not just a safe alternative to antibacterial soaps but a more skin friendly alternative to regular soaps. Not to mention the fact that with a 100% natural and sustainably sourced Palm OIl base, it’s good for the environment as well!

What is Swanson Ultra Pine Tar Soap used for?

The short answer is, of course, cleaning yourself. But that would be selling Swanson Ultra Pine Tar Soap short. This natural cleanser has been used for centuries to nourish and cleanse the skin, while keeping it strong but gentle to the touch.

Devoid of any harmful additives or fragrances, it is equally suitable for both men and women, positing itself as a neutral and equal all at once. Made by scorching wood of the Pine Tree, Pine Tar Soap was originally used by the Scandinavians to preserve wood, rope, rigging and even skis. When it truly came to cosmetic prominence though was when colonialists realised that it could be used as a shampoo.

So effective was it in fact, that many men waxed lyrical about its ability to deliver a full, clean and lustrous beard as well.

  • Great for treatment of skin conditions
  • Treatment of dandruff
  • Possesses antibacterial and antifungal qualities
  • Can help to allay itching of the scalp

Simply apply liberally with water as you would a regular soap.
