On Bagaduce Farm we make a collection of unique, artisanal, hand and shaving soaps for personal use.
62% of the ingredients—rendered lard and raw milk—in each bar are from nearby small sustainable farmsteads. Coconut oil, Olive oil, Jojoba ester, and bees wax round out our base to enhance the luxurious feel and extend the life of each bar.
For several thousand years, fat rendered from animals was the primary ingredient in making soap. Today, most of excess fat from livestock is relegated to the commercial waste stream. Ugh.
I collect extra pig fat from a select few local organic farmers and render it into beautiful lard for our soap, full of healthy fats and minerals, that can only be created by happy, healthy pigs raised outdoors on lush pastures.
