Transport yourself to a steamy Finnish sauna with Nordic Shaving Company Peat & Pine Tar Bath Soap. This soap bar with its strong, distinctive scent is 100% natural and is an artisan product, handmade using traditional methods in Finland. The peat and pine tar used are also sourced from Finnish forests, providing you with a truly authentic Nordic bathing experience.
Peat is a type of soil composed of plants that have partly decomposed and piled on top of each other. Maybe you’ve heard of bodies being dug up after being perfectly preserved in peat bogs – that’s because peat has amazing anti-ageing properties, with 200 organic ingredients such as zinc, iron, copper and selenium. Peat removes impurities and oiliness and preserves the skin, leaving it with a radiant glow.
Not to be confused with coal tar, pine tar has been proven to be anti‐inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal and antipruritic (used to relieve itching). It’s the result of the carbonisation of pine wood and has been used in medicine for over 2000 years. Its soothing and antiseptic properties are great for treating many skin conditions, including acne.
Pine tar products are often found at Finnish saunas and this scent is part of the atmosphere one can enjoy there. It's very strong and unique -- not for the fainthearted.
This traditional bath soap can be used on both the body and face and is suitable for all skin types. It cleans the skin as well as maintaining a healthy balance of moisture. It is biodegradable, vegan, not tested on animals and does not contain artificial preservatives, fragrances or dyes. It arrives wrapped in paper inside a recyclable aluminium box, which also doubles as a great way to carry it if you are on the move.
