PINE TAR SOAP for Eczema with Neem

(6 customer reviews)

Now I’ve got a lot of issues and not just emotionally but one issue I don’t have is eczema! But if you have eczema, psiorisis or some other dermatitas that is difficult to treat you owe it to yourself to try a 10% Pine Tar Soap. I didn’t believe but a friend lost her supplier and begged me to make it for her. I tried a couple times until this recipe and pay dirt (what does pay dirt mean anyway… never mind I’ll google it). Anyway, I have come to ask everyone dealing with skin issues to at least try Pine Tar Soap. Shoot, unless you simply can’t stand the smell of it (and some people love it), you have nothing to lose. It’s a good soap for dry itchy skin even if it turns out to not be the miracle cure for you it is for some people. Honeslty? I make really good soap and don’t use really good oils.

I chose to make Pine Tar Soap because of its long tradition as a soap used by people with itchy, flakey skin and scalp, especially in North America.

A customer begged me to make this soap for her and her husband because she could not find a good supply of it. She told me pine tar soap was a miracle for their flaky, itchy skin. On researching Pine Tar and its effectiveness, I found that while Australia approves of the use of pine tar for generalized itchiness and inflammation of skin often found in conditions described as dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema, sunburn, insect bites, rashes, nappy and chickenpox. For lots of information about Pine Tar see: However the FDA here in the United States has determined that Pine Tar is not an effective drug and I make no claims implied or otherwise that Pine Tar is an effective treatment for eczema, psoriasis or other medical conditions.

Pine Tar is produced by carbonizing pine wood using high heat. Pine Tar has a long history, it was used as the primary wood preservative in shipping before modern preservative methods were introduced. It was (and still is) used on horses hooves to help keep them moisturized. Medicinally, it has been used for at least 2000 years to treat skin conditions for what people thought were soothing and antiseptic properties Nevertheless, the demand for good, naturally made Pine Tar Soap is growing and I hope I can be some small help in this demand,

My pine tar soap is handmade by me. It begins with Olive Oil, which is gentler and more moisturizing than Coconut Oil. Plus it includes Cocoa Butter, Sea Buckthorn Oil, Neem Oil and Activated Charcoal, ingredients specially chosen to help troubled skin. I make my Pine Tar Soap from scratch, balancing the best ingredients with affordability. Hand made soap does not extract the glycerin from the soap to resell during the process and it is one of the reasons it is so much nicer.

Saponified Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter, Pine Tar and Castor Oil. Added after saponification to retain benefits include: Sea Buckthorn Oil, Organic Neem Oil, Activated Hardwood Charcoal, Essential Oils of Lemon Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Pine, and Cedarwood

Use on scalp and body as you would use any other soap. Keep dry between uses will allow the soap to last much longer. If you experience any unwanted reaction discontinue use.

The Pine Tar I purchase is an extra heavy pine tar sourced from a Swedish pine. Pine Tar is 100% pine tar; nothing else is added, no fillers, no additional chemicals, just 100% pine tar. According to the manufacturer, the manner in which the Pine Tar is processed is proprietary.
I have a few people order it who report hating the smell. However, a few buy it for the smell alone. The best I can do to describe is like burnt pine sap and road tar. If you can’t stand the smell and can’t use it, let me know?
Pine Tar soap may contain creosote which is considered an undesirable ingredient by some. Therefore you may not want to use this on a child. Instead try my rebatched African Black Soap which is similar but not as strong.

    I have developed deeply-itchy psoriasis patches on my skin. Not much of anything has helped until a few days ago when your package arrived! Love this soap! Smells wonderful and my skin is soothed. It is a profound relief! I will be looking for another bar soon!

    This soap is awesome! I have been on Dupixent injections for my atopic dermatitis for 5 months and I tried a Pine Tar Soap from another company before I found this one and I still itched. But this soap has totally eliminated the itching! I am so very happy!

    I have the pine tar shampoo and it works wonders for my hair, so I bought this to use as a face wash. The smell is great and I love all of the ingredients. I have yet to use it as a face wash though but I am excited to use it!
