Liquid Soap, Classic Lard Soap, Thickened for Pump Dispenser

$13.50

Handmade liquid soap, from scratch!  I make this soap very concentrated, and then thicken it for use in the standard squirt-pump dispensers.  I am so pleased to say that the thickening agent is just as "green" and gentle as the soap itself - table salt!  With the addition of a bit of sea salt, it becomes a beautiful, creamy thick soap "just like the real thing" (we all know this is the real thing, but it's hard to overcome that life-long social programming!)  I can make this soap opaque white, or maintain the clear of the original liquid soap - I will default to the opaque but if you'd like it clear just add a message to your order. 

This is sold as a refill for your existing squirt-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 28 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! 

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!
