In 1869, in the quaint fishing village of Mystic, Connecticut, Daniel F. Packer, an adventurer and entrepreneur, originated and sold “Packer’s All Healing Tar Soap.” This famous soap, now called “Packer’s Pine Tar Soap,” has been marketed continuously for over 135 years. Packer’s proprietary formula of natural pine tar and pine oils has provided millions of people with soothing help for a variety of skin conditions such as eczema, dandruff and psoriasis. Daily use of Packer’s provides effective natural protection against mosquito, chigger, tick and other insect bites, as was recognized by the Army Corp of Engineers who utilized Packer’s ingredients as the insect repellent of choice prior to World War II.
