Just if you'd get the full benefits of the pine tar
Same here. I've made it several times over the years, for customers and family but never got any feedback as to positive results. It's kinda like goat milk soap. People know it's supposed to be good for skin and are drawn to it for that reason.I'm open to having my mind changed, but so far I have not seen any evidence that pine tar is efficacious.
Good advice. The Tips & Techniques I posted above still hold true even though the optimum amount of pine tar Use Rate is 20%. This is based on a large group of experienced professional soapmakers from the Southern Soapers Yahoo Group (Now Defunct).Make pine tar at 20% if you want to. Or at 5% or 10% or 15% or whatever.
With all due respect, from my experience, dermatologists are the worst! Like most physicians, as well as their patients, they/we are victims of the pharmaceuticals. Just ask my next door neighbor, a pharmacist. Doctors go to her for suggestions of what to try next if something doesn't work. And so it begins... the long journey and expense of trying one drug after another that simply do not work. (Ask any mother that has a teenager with acne.) Dermatologists rely on treating patients with steroids and statins that are more harmful than helpful and may lead to brain damage over time.it's advisable to consult with a dermatologist or healthcare professional who can evaluate your condition and provide appropriate guidance.
