Hog Wash - Sweet fennel, local beer & foraged poppy seeds
Hog & Tallow Soaps are made with local tallow or lard, comfrey infused British rapeseed oil and waste ingredients such as ale, milk and cider. All the ingredients are either foraged by ourselves or collected from small cottage industries who are willing to give us their waste.
Tallow is a traditional and fantastic ingredient in soap. The fatty acids in tallow are similar to those found in the protective outer layer of human skin and in naturally produced skin oils
Tallow is highly compatible with our skin, allowing it to absorb easily, improve the protective barrier, prevent moisture loss and contribute to the appearance of healthy looking skin.
Being full of vitamin E, rapeseed oil is another skin loving ingredient. We wanted to use fats that are not only great for the skin but local to us and not flown in from around the world resulting in a soap with a very small carbon footprint!
We only use herbs and plants that we forage ourselves so we know that they are organic or from trusted gardens.
