Nourishing – Renewing – Cleansing

Face | Body | Hands

Can even be used for hair only if one cannot use our shampoo soap bars

A pure and simply solution for all your soapy needs, truly our best and most versatile seller.

This is the perfect introductory bar to our lard and buttermilk soap bars – least expensive in this category due to absence of scent or other additives.

Unscented, but smells creamy and nourishing!

Farm-Fresh raw buttermilk is a true superfood – high in vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, alpha-hydroxy acids including lactic acid, and proteins to feed your skin from the outside-in.

Lard compliments the buttermilk and makes this bar so very versatile: suitable for cleansing hair, body, face, and even for shaving.

Scent Strength: Light/None. Any scent detected is from the nature of the ingredients or being in our building with other scented products, we store them separately but they are displayed in the same room as other scented products.

Most consumers would say this product has no scent detectable at all or that any scent detected is only due to the nature of the ingredients.

NO SCENT OF ANY KIND WAS ADDED AS AN INGREDIENT TO THIS PRODUCT.

This product was made in our one and only facility where we manufacture all of our products (scented and unscented). Atmospheric scent may or may not transfer to a detectable level over to any unscented product.

We thoroughly clean all manufacturing tools between each use and keep our unscented products completely separate from our scented products (not touching).

Product will touch our packaging boxes, papers, and fillings that have been also sitting in our same small business facility where we make scented products.

If any atmospheric scent is detected by sensitive buyers, we recommend to let the unscented product sit for a few days to a few weeks in a dry atmosphere devoid of any scent with good air flow to allow any atmospheric smells to dissipate. Usually after the first use, the atmospheric smell transfers will dissipate.

According to our policies that all buyers must agree to upon checkout: we only accept returns for unused products within 30 days of delivery and buyer must cover all return shipping costs. No shipping costs from original order or return will be refunded.

You may use our lard soaps for cleansing your body, your face, your hair, or for shaving! We recommend our all-in-one shampoo soaps as the best option for using as shampoo or shaving soaps, but with some extra effort in lathering you can use our pure lard soaps as an alternative!

    I’m so happy I found a soap with no unnecessary ingredients. My skin feels so good. It’s the perfect spot for my whole family even the baby.

    Extremely moisturizing!

    allenwewd (verified owner)

    Our household has tried many soaps from PermaEarth and this is probably the most moisturizing, it lathers well and even feels like thicker suds compared to the other soaps. My bars (bought 2) had a light but distinct farm smell, I didn’t mind it (nice reminder of the limited and fresh ingredients) but my partner did not enjoy the smell. I will likely purchase again as a hand soap! My hair and skin (very curly and fine) responded well to this one, as they have to all their other soaps, I only follow with their conditioner occasionally as the soap seems to be enough most days. Looking forward to trying more of their products.

    The best soap

    Naomi White (verified owner)

    I’ve bought this so many times I’ve lost count. It’s my go-to for gentle cleansing and moisturizing. Very clean, and as someone with sensitive skin, I’ve never gotten any sort of irritation from it, like with other soaps. I’ve also gifted this to others who have told me that they love it. I would like it to have more lather, but you honestly can’t have everything! Lol. This soap is as pure as they come, and I’ll always have it on hand!

    Good Soap

    Diana Lopez Rodriguez (verified owner)

    If enjoy aromatherapy, this probably ain’t for you. I love scents, the only reason I ordered this one was because it was the least expensive option to try out. It’s unscented but it does give off a smell. It’s very moisturizing, it also lathers well! If you have very sensitive skin, this is probably best for you.

      Hi Diana! Thank you for your honest feedback, sometimes our unscented batches may have a slightly more “Farm-Fresh” smell than others due to the raw, organic ingredients from local, seasonal farms. Our theory is that it depends on the seasonal wild forage of the animals where we get our farm-fresh raw pasture-raised milk and fat from. I hope that helps to clarify your concerns! – Mariah, owner

    Good product!

    stwil620 (verified owner)

    Overall I do like this product! One bar lasted me a little over 2 months with washing my hair every other day. The photo and video show how big the bar started compared to after 2 months of use. Also, I was HIGHLY impressed that the bar didn’t break in those 2 months!! I have tried other bars before and they never seem to dry out fully after taking a shower, but this bar was amazing at staying hard and keeping shape! Greatly appreciated! The adjustment to being able to get it all washed out took the full 2 months for me. I have long, super fine hair, and a lot of it, so it was super hard to get it all washed out. It wasn’t hard to get a good lather but it was hard to get it all rinsed out. Now that I have finally cracked the code it’s feeling much better. Still a little heavier than I’m used to, but it has definitely improved. I figured out that I needed to wash my hair in sections. I start in the front and suds it up super well, rinse thoroughly, and then repeat with the next section further back. I do about 3 sections in total and that has allowed me to rinse my hair out the best! All in all, great product, but not completely ideal for my hair type 🙂

      Hello and thank you for your valuable feedback! We are wondering if you have tried our lard and buttermilk shampoo soap bars located in our haircare menu? We highly suggest our shampoo soaps for hair as a first recommendation. We hope they will give you the results you are looking for! Please consider our Unscented Buttercream as a more suitable alternative to your shampoo as it will provide a better cleanse. Thank you and best wishes! -Mariah

    My First Love.

    Nathan Hettick (verified owner)

    This was the first product I ever tried from Perma-Earth! I fell in love. My normally broken-out and oily back started to clear up after my first shower using Pure & Simple Lard & Buttermilk! I love the regular fat version of this for my skin as it is the perfect balance of cleansing and moisturizing! I happen to also use this one as a face wash!! It is gentle enough to not irritate my skin – and my rosacea is typically bothered by most products! I have also noticed the amount of flaking in my skin is next to nothing after using this!!! I give this a 10/10.

  7. Question

    Carleigh Snead (verified owner)

    Can the Pure & Simple lard and buttermilk soap also be used for face, in place of a face cleanser? Or is it just for body use?

    I use this bar for hair, face and body. Clean and simple ingredients that nourish all three. This bar saves me money since I no longer purchase facial cleanser or regular shampoo. Win win for my skin/hair and my wallet.

    I really enjoy this bar, it is gentle and does not leave my skin dry. A single bar has lasted me over a month. Will continue to buy!

    You may as well tack this body bar onto every order because why not?! For a great price point your skin and wallet will appreciate, this is the perfect product. While unscented, I found this makes little difference to me personally and I feel this bar lathers up slightly better in comparison to the Aloe-Spa body bar (also a great product). I highly recommend!

    This is one that I get with every order. Love it so much. You can never go wrong with having a simple, unscented, powerhouse of a product like this.

    I have switched back and forth between store-bought “better” soaps and this lard soap from perma earth. There is no comparison. This lard soap is so much better. I use it on head hair and body.

    Lard soap has changed my perception of clean. It gives a clean I have never felt, instead of “squeaky” clean, it’s more of a powdery feel without hands/skin feeling ashy afterwards. My hands and body are no longer feel dry, and lotion needs are next to none.
    I will never use plant based “soaps” again.
