Our soaps are made by rendering down our pork lard. Lard soap produces a creamy and stable lather and also it also has a mild moisturizing quality that helps prevent your skin from drying out. Soaps made of lard have nourishing properties that plants based fats don’t have. Human cells are largely made of saturated fats, just like lard. Plant based fats are a source of monounsaturated fats. Bars of lard soap are hard and long lasting, unlike plant based oil soaps that can turn into a pile of mush after wetting.
