Liquid Soap, Classic Lard Soap for Foaming Dispenser

Only 3 left in stock

$13.50

Handmade liquid soap, from scratch!   This soap is very concentrated, so it will work well in the foaming pump dispensers - if you want to use it in the standard squirt-pump bottle, you'd probably prefer the thickened "creamy" version (also here at the Farm Stand store) - without the thickening agent (simply table salt!!) it tends to splatter a bit. Because this is real, handmade soap with only water added (just enough to be liquid), with nothing else added, it is thinner than you may be used to in commercial hand or dish soap (they add thickening agents), but it is still very potent soap!  Because this is concentrated, you can dilute it further, "to taste", but it will be very thin, and may not work in the foaming pump as well.  

This is sold as a refill for your existing foaming-pump bottle, it is packaged in a re-purposed plastic bottle that I received sodium hydroxide (lye) in for soap-making. The bottle has been thoroughly washed, and holds 32 oz of soap. Once you're finished with the bottle, I hope you either recycle it, or re-purpose it again - I use dozens of these in my kitchen for storing grains, beans, smaller amounts of flour/nut-meal/seeds etc, they're such a great size and fit well in a kitchen cabinet!  As with all my products, if the shipping is less than you are charged, depending on other items ordered and your location, I will refund the difference.

This is a concentrated liquid lard soap, made here on the farm from hand-rendered lard courtesy of Cove Creek Farm, a fellow small, sustainable, off-grid farm raising pastured, non-GMO pigs just down the road.  This handmade soap is 80% local lard and 20% coconut oil, which adds extra cleaning power and lather.  Lard soap is surprisingly moisturizing and gentle on skin - my bar lard soap has gotten great reviews, so I've simply converted the same recipe to liquid form for those of you that prefer the convenience of liquid over bar soap.  I love that I can make a great soap mostly from local ingredients sourced right here in Tennessee – most of my other soap ingredients come from halfway around the world, so I'm excited that I can reduce my (and therefore your) carbon footprint and source most of this soap locally!   While lard soap often has a reputation for being harsh or rough on skin, that is largely because many years ago, lye was not consistently refined, and people didn't use precision measurements.  Today, with 100% pure lye and a digital scale, lard makes a beautiful soap, very hard and long-lasting, with good cleaning power, while being surprisingly gentle and great for skin. I have gotten great reviews about how wonderful this soap is on skin - gentle, moisturizing, cleansing, and no residue!

I offer this soap in a variety of fragrances or simply unscented.  If you have your own fragrance or essential oils you can order the unscented version and then customize your own soap, a bottle at a time by adding a few drops to each bottle of unscented soap.  Any of the EO (essential oils) scents are mixed by me, so if you'd like a custom fragrance (any EO alone, or  2-3 in a blend that I don't already have available) just include that in a message, I'm happy to do that.

As with all my products, if the shipping is less than you are charged because of other items ordered and your location, I will refund the difference.  To learn more about me, my goats, our farm here in Tennessee, or how I make my soap, stop by my blog or check out our new Instagram account and see what’s going on on the farm!
