Boerseep is like good wine, as it matures it just gets better.
The Voortrekkers originally produced “boerseep” during their move from the Cape Province inland. They used all the fat from the animals they slaughtered, and cooked in big pots until all the fat came loose from the bones and meat. The pot was let to cool down and the fat was cut from the top part of the pot.
This traditional soap recipe is all about being organic, caustic soda was produced by using the ash of certain bushes. The ash was filtered in water until it crystallized and formed caustic soda. The melted clean fat and caustic soda water were mixed together until it had the consistency of honey. The next day loafs of soap were cut and let to dry.
As an awesome all-rounder this product is good for people with skin sensitive to many modern day chemicals. It is soft on the skin and has worked to clear up skin conditions where the change was made, I have not tried 'Die ware Jakob' as a shaving soap yet, but it makes for a damn good body routine.
