Liquid Soap Refill - 100% Lard Liquid Soap for Pump Dispenser, Bathroom and Kitchen Soap, 16 or 32 oz

Only 8 left in stock


Handmade liquid lard soap, from scratch!   This is real, handmade old-fashioned lard soap with only lard, lye and water.  If you are sensitive to coconut oil, or any other vegetable oil, this is the soap for you! 

I dilute this soap only enough to actually be liquid (it is made as a paste to start with), so it is very concentrated.  It is naturally a fairly thin consistency, which works well as dish liquid, and it can easily be further diluted with water "to taste".  It also works well in any DIY household cleaner recipe calling for liquid castile soap (that's actually why I started making this - as a soaper, I couldn't bring myself to go buy another soap!)  I can also make this a thickened soap, like commercial liquid hand soap, better for the regular pump dispensers (the thinner version tends to splatter), and best of all, the only additional ingredient as a thickening agent is simply sea salt!  Just add a note in the Personalization box at checkout to let me know which version you prefer.  Note, the thickening process is much more an art that a science!  Each scent, whether essential oil or fragrance, affects the consistency of the soap, generally increasing the viscosity (sometimes startlingly so!) and this effect can even change over time.  Because I mix each one to-order, I will try to make your soap a day or two ahead of time to let it "settle in", but it is still possible (though unlikely) for it to change after that.  If the consistency of your soap is not what you expected, please get in touch and I am happy to give you some tips on simple ways to fix both too thick and too thin soap.

This is sold as a REFILL for your existing soap dispenser, it comes in a plastic stand-up pouch with a pour spout.  These pouches are reusable, each order will come with a pre-paid return label for you to send the container back to me to use again (If you order several pouches I will just send one label, and if you've ordered some in the past and will only need one return label for several bottles at a time, just add a note to say you don't need one with your order).  While it does use plastic, this ended up being the most waste-free packaging solution I could find.  It actually ends up costing me quite a bit more to get the pouch back than to buy a new one (which is itself not the cheapest option in plastic packaging), but it is worth it to me - and hopefully to you as well - to keep multiple single-use plastic bottles out of a landfill.  

AS AN EVEN GREENER ALTERNATIVE - I have another listing here for the same soap, but in an aluminum bottle, up-cycled from my essential oils.  This is honestly my preferred packaging, since only about 5% of the plastic pouches get returned to me, and using these bottles that I already have keeps them out of a landfill, at least for one more use!

I love that I can make a great soap almost entirely 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!
