The scent is extremely complex and rich with nuances of tobacco leaf, tobacco blossom, vanilla and woody undertones. This is a fragrance scented soap.

Types of Soaps

Standard Bar Soaps

An all-vegetable luxury bar scented with natural essential oil. Handcrafted with Olive and other natural vegetable oils rich in vitamin E. These bars are good for the whole body.


The Local Pig All-Lard Soaps

We have partnered with Local Pig Charcuterie of the famous Kansas City, Missouri, River Market community to develop an all-natural lard based luxury bar. This bar contains lard and as many know lard makes a very luxurious soap. We agree and you should too if you have no objections to animal products.


Patchwork Family Farms Lard Bar Soaps

Patchwork Family Farms is composed of 15 independent family hog farmers who raise hogs the traditional way and that tradition results in a very high quality and rich lard. We have partnered with Patchwork to create a line of soaps using lard from their farmer's hogs. When you purchase a Patchwork Lard Soap a portion of the money supports Missouri farm families.
