Classic Lard Soap - Tangerine Vanilla Old-Fashioned Lard Soap, Old-Time Soap for Gifts or Everyday, Soap for Kids


This 4 oz handcrafted real lard soap is packed with childhood and summer, with vanilla and tangerine fragrances that transport me to my Grandma's backyard, dripping ice cream and happily sunburned!  The vanilla "discolors" this soap to a rosy-tan, I personally think it's a lovely shade.  This bar is currently available in a simple square bar wrapped in hand-cut brown paper, labelled with complete ingredients (just lard, coconut oil, lye, water, and fragrance!)  Please check out my About Handmade Soap page if you're hesitant when you see the word “lye”, and see why you needn't worry.  I have gotten great reviews, both in person and through my Etsy shop, about how wonderful this soap is for skin - gentle, moisturizing, cleansing, and no residue! Customers say:

  • "Forget buying' Lush' soaps and shampoo bars. These products are better! I always wanted to try lard soap. I loved the shop's story and who wouldn't love the price? I put my money on THIS lard soap and found out that it is THE BEST soap I have ever tried! It has left my skin soft and silky. I bought unscented and it smells so ...clean! Really! The lather is wonderful. Who knew?"
  • "Ok listen. I have been on a mad search for the best tallow soap for like, months. I wanted tallow because I find veg oil soaps to leave that sticky film I can’t stand. I found one other lard soap that doesn’t leave a film, but I was still missing something. Then I found this. It’s PERFECT. No weird residue. No sticky. Soap has a great feel. And the best part? It LATHERS. It’s SO GREAT. Seriously, it’s been a long time coming and I’m so happy. "

If you're interested in using handmade lard soap, but are more familiar with liquid soaps, check out my new liquid Classic Lard soap: Classic Lard Liquid Soap for Squirt-Pump Dispenser or Classic Lard Liquid Soap for Foaming Dispenser

And if you know you love this soap, you can stock up or try more scents with the Classic Lard 6-pack: 6 Scented Square Bars6 Scented "Fancy" Molded Bars, or 6 Unscented Bars.

Or, if you know that even though real soap is super-moisturizing, you still like to have a little hand balm or body butter for when you need it, consider getting some Grass-fed Tallow Balm - it's made with tallow from our own Scottish Highland cattle, and is available in 25 different fragrances, custom fragrance blending, or unscented. 

I know this is an unusually low price compared to most handmade soap, but I want to offer a soap that is economical for everyday use, and since it is 3/4 free local lard rather than exotic imported oils, my input costs are very low (other than the days spent rendering lard of course!). We try to live as “lightly” as possible, and I want to help make that an option for others as well.  Please read Our Handcrafting Process to see just what makes our soap special!
