History..

Savon de Marseille is the hard cube soap recognizable by its rustic appearance.

The soaps are made of 100% vegetable oils and comes in two variants - olive oil soap and palm oil soap.

The soaps contain no preservatives, dyes or fragrances. They are not tested on animals, are anti-allergic and antiseptic as well as 100% biodegradable.

History shows that it was in Gaul that the first variant of the soap appeared, more like a soapy cream made from ash from beech and sebum of goats.

The soap was first produced in Marseille in the 12th century.
Over time, the production process could be improved and the cube was produced in large kettles in which they, at the end of the process, put water into the soap mass to remove all impurities. Marseille was during this time one of the first and largest soap industries in Europe.
The genuine Marseille soap is today produced in accordance with the law legislated in 1688!


This law says e.g. that a Marseille soap has to contain 72% vegetable oil and that the manufacturing process has to include four stages. If Marseille soap is a concentration of different cultures, it is also a concentration of well-being.
The Savon de Marseille soap is not just a soap, but it is highly recommended by various dermatologists to alleviate skin problems. It can be used for disinfecting wounds, or to relieve burns. It works great for removing stains, washing brushes, as detergent or antilice agents for plants.

The cube is so gentle it can be used as toothpaste and shampoo. We are proud to say that Marseille soap was used during the Vietnam War to relieve burns from
Napalm.
