A soap made with the basic goodness of natural vegetal oils, water, and lye. No complex chemistry, just pure ingredients coming together in a simple, traditional process that is believed to have been discovered thousands of years ago by Babylonians.

2.What Makes Savon de Marseille Unique?
Now, you might wonder, what sets Savon de Marseille apart from other natural soaps? It's all about tradition and authenticity. Savon de Marseille follows centuries-old techniques, using a minimum of 72% vegetable oil, often olive oil, resulting in a soap that's exceptionally mild, nourishing and gentle on the skin. The iconic cube shape and distinct stamp embody a rich heritage, making each bar a piece of artisanal mastery.
3. What are the Benefits of Natural Soap to Your Skin?
Natural soap isn't just about cleanliness; it's a skincare ritual that pampers your skin. Made without harsh chemicals, it's like a gentle embrace for your skin, preserving its natural oils. If you have sensitive skin, rejoice – this soap is the kind touch you've been searching for. Beyond cleanliness, it leaves your skin feeling moisturized and refreshed, a true testament to the power of simplicity.
4. Can You Use Natural Soap on Your Face?
Absolutely! A properly formulated natural soap, born from a thoughtful blend of natural vegetal oils and additives adapted to the skin, is not just for your body but a treat for your face too. We have grown to believe we shouldn't use soap on our face because most of the soap we find in mass distribution is not natural soap but a blend of harsh chemicals and detergents.
4. How Long Does Natural Soap Last? Does It Have an Expiration Date?
This soap is a trooper when it comes to shelf life. However, over time, even well-preserved soap may lose fragrance and effectiveness. Checking for any changes in appearance, smell, or texture can help determine if the soap is still suitable for use. While it doesn't boast a strict expiration date, using it within a year or two ensures you experience it at its freshest. Keep it in a cool, dry place and once opened always leave it in a drainer (a soap dish or a cloth) and feed it plenty of air.
5. How to Care for Natural Soap to Make It Last Longer?
Want to stretch the life of your soap? It's as easy as giving it a little care. Store it in a cool, dry place between uses and opt for a soap dish with drainage. This not only prolongs the soap's life but also adds a touch of practical elegance to your bathroom. It's like giving your soap its own little spa retreat.
