Dandelion-Poppyseed Soap

( 1 Review )

Dandelion-Poppyseed soap is a seasonal specialty, and in very limited quantity, so get it while the getting is good. This bar is gentle, yet mighty, with both its nourishing and exfoliating benefits. Olive oil is infused over a month's time with locally picked dandelions before the soapmaking process even begins (you can read more about this process here). Dandelion flowers are known to be fabulous for treating rough, dry skin, so infusing them with skin-softening olive oil makes for ultimate skin restoration. The added poppyseeds allow for light, but effective, scrubbing ability. The lard in this bar lends saturated fats that will greatly benefit your skin and leave it feeling moisturized. Sunflower oil is good for your skin thanks to its linoleic acid and vitamin E content, and is known to help keep skin moisturized and possibly fight acne and brighten your complexion. Any color in the soap comes naturally from its ingredients. Dandelion-Poppyseed soap is palm oil free.

This bar's subtle, relaxing, citrus-herb scent comes from the added lemongrass essential oil.

INGREDIENTS (in order of weight)
Dandelion-infused pure olive oil, distilled water, organic coconut oil, sodium hydroxide, lard, sunflower oil, lemongrass essential oil, sodium lactate, poppy seeds, rosemary antioxidants.

In keeping with our social and ethical responsibility goals, our lard and tallow supplier, Pine Trough Branch (PTB) Farm, is a local farm, growing beyond-organic vegetables and the highest-quality meat from free-range animals born and raised on pasture and forest land. All of their meat production is certified as Animal Welfare Approved. For more information see their website here.

Keep your bar of soap dry in between uses by placing it on a soap dish that properly drains (not directly on the tile or in a non-draining dish!). This is not a requirement to be able to enjoy your soap, but it will help to extend its life.

Spring in a Bar

I was intrigued by the idea of a dandelion soap, and I’m so glad I gave this a try. The fresh springtime scent is wonderful and I’m loving the exfoliating poppy seeds. I’ve even been using on my 40-year old, still acne prone face with great results! I nearly passed over this bar because I read there was lard in it. I’ve been happily vegetarian for 7 years, and my one regret is that my eating choice has prevented me from supporting farms that do things the right way. So when I read about the care that has gone into the sourcing of this lard, I saw this as a chance to support some fantastic farmers. I feel peaceful about my decision and love the creaminess of the lather that, well, apparently comes from lard!
