Boerseep. In local soapmaking context it's origin is in the era when the 'Boerevolk' left the Cape colony and trekked northwards into South Africa in search of new land, free from European rule and their restrictive regulations. It is a simple, but very effective soap made from the tallow rendered from cattle fat and lye. The lye was derived from the ashes of wood used to cook food and heat the homestead, the recipe has remained much the same over the years as it is such an honest, simple product that is easy to use and effective at doing its duty, luckily it has become a lot easier to obtain the ingredients to produce these all-time favorite.

Unlike mass produced soaps these are made with natural ingredients, the soap is not processed in a way to remove moisturizing elements, which is the case with many larger manufacturing houses, these ingredients are then sold at a premium as moisturising and skin conditioning products.

The 250 gram bar is made for general use in the home, but may also work very well for folks with oily or normal skin as a body soap, use it in several ways and find out how it serves you best 

The 175 gram bar has been superfatted and has added moisturising and conditioning properties, the bar would be a great body soap for most folks with normal or sensitive skin.

This is a boerseep with only the most basic ingredients, there are no essential oils or fragrance oils used in the formula, so a great product for folks with all types of skin, it may very well be a good match for people with problem skin or aid in preventing flare-ups of conditions triggered by certain ingredients.

Ingredients: Lard, stearic acid, water. That's it!
