Pine tar is an ingredient which I was looking for so long and this because I have heard so many good things about it. Coming from Norway, pine tar has a long history in the treatment of skin diseases like rosacea, eczema, psoriasis. Its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties make it useful for the cure of dandruff. It is well-known for its antifungal and antimicrobial effects, which make it an excellent ingredient for soaps and shampoos.
I have already made a shampoo of it and I want to give it a try a few more times the comingmonths before I judge on how good it is (I will come back on it within 2 months).
This soap was made of: coconut oil, olive oil, cocoa butter, sesame oil, almond milk, pine tar, niaouli essential oil, ylang-ylang essential oil. I was expecting to get a black colour, but because I used only a little bit, the colour is not really what I wanted. The the smell of soap is strong but it smells so clean!
