Why pork leaf lard? To quote from maker, Lacey Zope of Leaf Soaps, “Leaf Lard is an amazing emollient and nourishes skin with Vitamins E and D. In balms, it helps protect skin from harsh weather and soften wrinkles while not being overly greasy. In soaps, it lends to an outstanding rich lather that is not overly drying. It is non-comedogenic, meaning it wont clog pores. For hundreds of years it has been used to heal and protect skin.” Centuries-old tradition lend themselves to the handcrafted soap that Lacey has perfected. Her workshop is located in Burlington, Washington.
