Are your products creosote-free?

What is the scent of Packer’s Pine products?
The pine tar and pine oil used in our products are extremely important to their performance and help to create the unique scent. Particularly in the bar soap, you might notice slightly smoky overtones combined with a fresh piney aroma which fades soon after use. Scent is a very individualized sense but visualize sitting out by the campfire, surrounded by fresh pine trees. Consider this proof that you’re getting the REAL DEAL with a product made using true pine tar and pine oil in all their glory and NOT an added fragrance or imposter!

What’s the deal with Pine Tar?
Pine Tar has been used in medicine for more than 2,000 years because of its natural healing properties that are antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal. Since 1869, we have sourced the highest grade pine tar and pine oil to make our plant-based products that invigorate, relieve and protect.  

Where are your products made?
We are proud to say our products are all made in the good ol’ USA (for over 150 years!)

Can the pine tar soap bars be used on the face and hair?
Yes, our soap bars are safe and effective to be used head to toe and many of our customers use them as such with great results. That said, our haircare products are formulated specifically for hair and scalp so we would recommend trying those products to discover the specific haircare benefits. 

Do your products help with dry skin and scalp conditions?
Although we don’t formulate our products specifically for dry skin, hair and scalp conditions, many of our customers struggling with eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and dandruff tell us they have worked wonders for them. With no harsh chemicals added, it doesn’t dry your skin out like commercial soaps and is gentle enough for everyday use.

Do you offer subscriptions?

Do Packer’s Pine products repel mosquitoes and other annoying insects?
The natural pine tar and pine oil properties of our products are known to repel mosquitoes, ticks, chiggers, and other pests. In fact, Packer’s Pine was recognized by the Army Corp of Engineers who used our soap as the insect repellent of choice prior to World War II. We have had many customers tell us they enjoy the added bonus that our products are effective insect repellents. 

So basically, our customers love us and mosquitoes hate us!
