Hi Mancmummy Does it say clearly on label or in the MSDS that is a cosmetic grade, or is it PT used for hors hoofs as for the main purpose? I imagine, that it may be not allowed, as PT used in animal care is not clean out from adverse substances, some of them r consider as cancerogenic, like the byproducts of burning out of the sap. I wonder if the PT soap is not possible to assess at all, or just with this kind of PT?Hi, this is my first post here even though I have been browsing tne forum for some time. After reading this thread I bought some Auson Kiln burned pine tar from timbersave (lovely company in Warrington Uk). I have made a batch of pine tar soap which turned out great - if a little darker than I expected! I was looking to get the soap safety assessed and contacted a company re the pine tar as it was the only product that I couldn't find on their approved list. The response I got back was a not one I expected, they said that after speaking to their chemist I would not be able to use the pine tar. I have seen many pine tar soaps for sale inthe UK and have made sure that the one that I used is 100% Pine Tar - it even says that it is often used for cosmetics and pharmaceuticals on the product information on the website. Surely I can get a pine tar soap recipe approved by the UK regulators. Has anyone had their pine tar soap assessed/approved. If so, can you please tell me which company you used? Any help would be much appreciated.
C n you PM me and let me know who did you speak with? Which assessor in UK?
