Yes LARD.. In 7 years I have had zero contact with anything coming from pigs, cows, chickens, turkeys or any land/air animals.
But after reading about this farm, and for the sake of research, I decided to give this one a try.
It smells amazing!!!!!
You will never, ever realize there is lard anywhere in there. The scent of Lavender, Bergamot and Vanilla is so delicate and it leaves no residue.
Here is what @coghlancottage to say about why they choose to use lard in their soaps: “First and foremost, I’m a farmer. Our family raises pastured, organic heritage breed hogs. They spend 100% of their time in the fresh air, sleeping in the sun, rooting in the woods, eating veggies from the garden and enjoying belly rubs from our two little kids.
Our family loves the health benefits (not to mention the flavour) of pastured lard, but there is only so much we and our customers can eat! “Pastured lard is particularly rich in Vitamin D, second only to Cod Liver Oil! As a bonus, lard’s properties perfectly replace the rainforest destroying palm-oil that is so prevalent in vegan handmade soap”
Coghlan Cottage Farm is a teeny-tiny diversified, grass-based, deep-organic family farm situated on a historic homestead nestled in the fertile Fraser Valley at the foot of the Rocky Mountains.
