Our 100% Handmade Pine Tar Soap is enriched with Wintergreen and Camphor Essential Oils. It is handmade in the UK for Zoom Health. This type of soap has traditionally been used as a treatment for many common skin conditions:
Eczema and Psoriasis
For over 100 years, Pine Tar Soap has been used to treat eczema, psoriasis and other types of dermatitis. It helps to moisturise scaly, dry skin and aids the healing process. Suitable for use on any part of the body, including the face, pine tar soap can even be used as a shampoo.
Chronic skin conditions eczema and psoriasis can benefit from the healing properties of pine tar products. They can also help as a natural way to relieve skin discomfort from dermatophyte infections.
Rashes and Allergies
Pine Tar Soap can help relieve symptoms of contact dermatitis or skin allergic reactions. By washing the affected area with soap, the itch can be stopped, once the skin has been dried. The healing process can then begin.
Pine tar soap is even used by vets to treat mange skin disorders on animals.
Many shampoo brands include pine tar in their shampoos as it can help to prevent seborrheic dermatitis, a scalp condition that causes dandruff.
Before World War Two, pine tar was the insect repellent of choice. By using pine tar soap daily, skin was kept healthy and soothed. It also help to provide protection against mosquito, ticks and bites from other insects.
