Lard Soap





Years ago when I first started making soap I made a batch with lard and as I recall it turned out really lovely. I don't even remember the reason why I didn't do it again at the time but as years wore on it sort of became unfashionable to use lard for soapmaking.

Recently I get a penchant to do it again and decided I'd do a 100% lard soap for utility purposes. It came out fantastic. I started using it for all kinds of things around the house. Washing dishes, cleaning, laundry, etc. It's the hardest and whitest bar of soap I've ever produced. I made it with zero superfat and assumed it would be kinda harsh on the skin but to my surprise it's not. It cleans like a charm and rinses off easily.

This batch I added a little orange essential oil for interest and I think it worked out well.

I sometimes make a lard soap for my own use .... it makes one of the most conditioning body soaps ever! But yes, most of my customers would baulk at the idea of using animal fats in their soap.

That looks lovely. Funny...my very first soap I ever made contained Lard...it was the first ever batch of 'white witch' and was so creamy good. It's such a cheap way to produce soap too...good call Sharon! xxx
Hi Sharon,

I like that you chose orange essential oil. I think that will contribute to the quality of this soap in a big way.

Great idea! I hope it comes out well. With soap making, time really will tell, but this soap looks very nice.
I find that some of the best batches of soap I make contain lard or tallow and they do sell well. Most people that have issue with animal fat, for religious reasons or if they are vegan will ask if the soap contains animal fat or look at my ingredients. Everyone else just smells the soap, if they like the scent, they buy the soap. :)

Wow Lard, really?
I can see how it would make a lovely white bar, but I worry I would have a hard time selling this to my customers.
I'm keen to try. Any type of lard I need to look out for ? Is shortening the same thing - excuse me I'm British and am not sure of the terms. In my local supermarket they sell a big can of shortening, or is this like a solid vegetable oil? Would appreciate some advice.....thanks.

My "Old Fashioned Lye Soap" has always been a bestseller for me. I don't use lard anymore though -I did try it years ago, too. I love your packaging -it's just perfect! :)
