Pine Tar Incident
Pine Tar Incident
Those who know it, know it well, those who don't can go to...hello, let me start your introduction.
July 24, 1983: It's the top half of the ninth inning and the Yankees are leading the Royals, 4-3. Future Hall of Famer, George Brett steps up and hits a two-run homer to give Kansas City a 5-4 lead. Immediately, the Yankee's manager rushes out and disputes the home run based on a large amount of pine tar on George Brett's bat. The umpire agrees, reverses the home run and calls George Brett out. Game over, Yankees win...or at least that's how it appeared. The next day, the Royals appealed the call to the league and the league agreed, allowing the home run and mandating a resumption of the game with the Royals up 5-4. After a great many shenanigans by the resisting Yankees, the game was restarted 25 days later, and concluded with the Royals winning 5-4.
April 21, 2017: It's the bottom half of the night, almost morning, and Melissa steps up to the crock pot, its overflowing. Matt stands there in stunned silence. Fearing a loss, Melissa grabs a towel and a soap mold and starts pouring. Matt snaps out of it and grabs a spoon. Thick, pungent, super hot pine tar soap is glopped into the mold. It's a mess. Game over, W.T.S. loses...or at least that's how it appeared. The next day W.T.S. avoids the issue, but 24 hours later, the mold is opened and a beautiful smelling, nicely formed and skin loving soap is revealed. In conclusion, W.T.S. and you win.
Stories aside, pine tar is an admirable substance and has been used for many applications. It has been used as a wood preservative, as a wood sealant for maritime use, in roofing construction and maintenance, in the treatment of carbuncles and skin diseases, such as psoriasis, eczema, and rosacea, and now in soap!
Made with olive oil, coconut oil, tallow, PINE TAR, castor oil, soybean oil, NEEM OIL, peppermint and rosemary ESSENTIAL OILS, this soap is both a nice cleanser and moisturizer, and soothes the skin and scalp. Use it as a shampoo. Use it as a facial or body bar. Use it for maritime uses. Just use it.
Smelling of deep pine, thick molasses and campfire with a wisp of peppermint and rosemary, it's dark, sexy and all natural.

"It's a great morning, I woke up and there was no hair on my pillow! I give the credit to Pine Tar soap which I started using on my head as a suggestion and have found to my astonishment that my dandruff has gone away, my hair is soft and my hair is apparently not falling out. My girlfriend loves the smell! LOL. I highly recommend this product as well as all of their other soaps which I use regularly."
