  Used many times before, it has a strong pine smell but incredibly good for the skin. Recommended especially if you suffer from skin conditions .

  Grandpa's Pine Tar Soap - Great product, excellent for curing skin conditions, one of the best kept secrets that 'Big Pharma' doesn't want you to know about!

  My order was handled brilliantly, arriving within a couple of days. The soap itself has a wonderful smell; hot, piney, tarry. Lathers well in our very hard water. It's a little early to say if is working as it says on the box but there are signs that a couple of my skin complaints are easing. I am half way through the first bar, three more to go. I have yet to try it on my hair.

  Grandpa's pine tar soap is a great product, it has in my opinion a lovely smell that gives heavy hints to the process of its manufacture, it lathers nicely giving good coverage and does wonders for dry flaky skin. My family and I have used this product on not only on ourselves but also our dog and in the past on dry skin on my forestry horse (test patch recommended) with good results, the manufacture and use of products like this can only help improve the way we live on so many levels.

  Great product, it lathers up very easily and leaves less scum than the usual soaps, probably better for showers, less to clean. You feel very clean and fresh after its use as there is no residue left on your skin. The smell is fresh and not overpowering. A great present for someone who enjoys bathing. I am almost certain my skin has improved after using one bar.
