Sometimes one just isn't enough. Swanson Ultra Pine Tar Soap comes with three bars to keep you feeling clean even longer. Pine tar soap is a classic cleanser from the bygone era that calls to mind a simpler time before harsh chemicals and synthetic detergents became the norm. A popular favorite more than a century ago, this old standby is gaining a new generation of fans as a natural, paraben-free cleanser that’s safe and gentle to use, with no artificial scents, antibacterials or other harsh chemical additives that can irritate sensitive skin.

Made with pure, natural ingredients, pine tar soap rinses away clean with no lingering fragrance, leaving your skin feeling moisturized and refreshed. In the days before shampoos were widely available, pine tar soap was often used to clean the hair and scalp as well as the body, and to this day many men swear that it’s the only cleanser to use for a lustrous, silky smooth beard.

The natural cleansing power of Swanson Ultra Pine Tar Soap is safe and gentle not just for your body, but for the environment as well. It’s made with earth-friendly, biodegradable ingredients that won’t pollute the water system, making it ideal for use while camping outdoors as well as in-home use. In keeping with our earth-friendly philosophy, it’s made with a 100% sustainable palm oil base, sourced according to rules set by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). It’s a healthy, “green” way to keep your whole body clean.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Pine Tar Soap is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Let me say up front - I love this soap HOWEVER, it completely clogged my bathtub drain and coated my tub in a yellowish substance that i had to scrub continually. As for the drain, after 2 plumbers and countless bottles of drain cleaner, the problem finally stopped when i stopped using this soap. Luxuriant. Wonderful. Love it more than any other soap I have ever used. BUT I will never use it again because of the drain problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I love the clean feeling I get from this soap! Just the smell makes me feel like I am in nature. This is not a strong smell like the pine tar soap we used as a child which was super strong and I didn't like. This is just enough to give you that "outdoorsy" feel and it is refreshing and natural. My skin is definitely showing improvement!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't bother It seems like a good deal for 3 bars, they are huge bars, but the smell is so bad you can't use it. I'm not kidding. Stick with Grandpa's Pine Tar soap....wish I had!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Grandpa's is better I love Swanson's stuff, but this was just not as good as Grandpa's Pine Tar soap. The value is great; it's $3 less than Grandpa's, but I will spend the extra and get Grandpa's next time. I'm one who likes the strong smell of Pine Tar soap and this was a bit weak and not as dark. If you like Pine Tar with a weaker smell, then Swanson's soap may be for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hubby likes it My husband likes this. He has sensitive skin, and many soaps irritate him. This soap is non-irritating and works well for him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fresh and Squeaky This soap leaves my hair squeaky clean and.has a wonderful, light, pine fragrance that says "fresh" to me. I prefer it over Grandpa's Pine Tar Soap and Packer's Pine Tar Soap. Unlike the other brands, Swanson's soap is also easier to hold. Of course, not every product can please every person, but Swanson's Ultra Pine Tar Soap pleases me immensely. Many thanks to those who formulated this soap and designed its shape and packaging.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No Pine Tar Fragnance... Didn't like it. Did not smell like Pine Tar. Had a strong odor in the bathroom when opened from plastic wrapping.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works Well, Smells Awful I have also purchased a more famous brand of Pine Tar soap and while Swanson's brand is just as effective, the smell is just terrible. The other brand smells like a pine fire. This soap smells like a combination of tea tree oil and burning plastic. Will not be buying this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Soap I love this soap! My dermatologist recommended I use pine tar soap and I have used Grandpa's for a few years. I like Swanson's better...richer, thicker lather, nicer smell and the price is good too. I'm very pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product As Pine tar soap goes I think this one is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Nice Product Usually I buy Grandpa's pine tar soap but since Swanson had a special on this new product. I decided to try it out. Well, the package is outstanding as the inner bar and outer box are both wrapped in plastic. What this does is prevent the pin tar smell from getting into everything when storing your extra bars of soap. Outstanding job Swanson on your packaging. Pine tar soap is pine tar soap. It works. The Swanson brand is just as good as other pine tar soaps out there.
