Soaps, Salves & Balms
Featuring farm-crafted, sustainably produced skin salves & lip balms handcrafted by myself & my Son on our small permaculture farm.
These items aren't vegan. They are crafted using an old fashioned ingredient that is available to us with an extremely low carbon footprint- rendered leaf lard from our pasture & forest raised rare breed heritage pigs. Rather than ship in ingredients that are sourced from all over the world, we've chosen to employ our main ingredient which is found right outside our front door.
This is the way our ancestors cared for their skin, before plant oils persisted. Lard, also known as pig tallow, strutto, manteca, or saindoux- is the closest to our skin's own natural sebum.
Update: As of 9/2020 there are some soaps out of stock. I've begun my Fall soapmaking process, and these should be restocked over the next 30-60 days (Cold process soap has a necessary curing time, hence the lengthier timeframe). Some of the soaps are available on my sister site, Swan Song Provisions LLC, and not available here. This is due to them being in very small quantities and the challenge of managing such small inventories over multiple platforms (I sell the soaps in several places).
