  Great natural product, highly recommended if you are sensitive to chemicals in regular soaps. I have also used it as a shampoo. Service and delivery time from the website is also excellent.

  I bought this soap as I have never seen it in block form before. For my eczema I have had this in the shampoo form, as the shampoo helped my eczema I don't see why the soap shouldn't do the same. It lavers up nicely and is gentle to the skin, the smell is quite nice and seems it will last along time. I also like the fact it is 100% plant based pine tar and can be used as a shampoo as well as shaving foam. what more do you need for washing etc.

  As usual, order received very promptly. Very professional company. My son uses this soap which helps to sooth his skin as he suffers from eczema.

  Excellent product. This is the second time we've bought 4 of these bars from Ray Mears Bushcraft, and it won't be the last. The soap produces a good lather and has a distinctive (but certainly not unpleasant) smell. Cut down a bar (or save a part-used one) for backpacking trips when weight is at a premium. Really good for degreasing grubby hands but also good for the whole body. We will find out this summer if the midge-repellent properties reported by some people work for us too!

  Best soap for skin. If you have oily skin or dry skin this is brilliant for both. Leaves you feeling nice clean and fresh after use. And no rubbish added to it A* all round. Strong pine tar smell when washing but no smell on skin when dried.
