Don't do the same mistake I did. I thought I'd get a soap smelling like pine. Instead it smells of tar, -like an ashtray or and old log cabin. However, I do believe it could have special propertes for skin problems. The lather is very soft and it doesn't dry out the skin.
The smell's the thing

I'm sure this is a great soap for many reasons as all those five star reviews attest. But I can't get past the smell. It is just too much for me. I lightly used it last night for a whole body wash, hoping that the smell would naturally dissipate. I got up this morning, went into the den, and could still smell it on me. Even the box, that I left in the kitchen last night, exudes that smell.
