Savon de Marseille means "Soap from Marseille" -- France's souther port city on the Mediterranean Sea. Marseille soap is a hard soap, which can take different sizes and shapes: cube, retangle oval, or chips and flakes. It must be made from vegetable oils exclusively, without perfume, Without coloring, without additives or preservatives
During the traditional production of Marseille Soap, the soap maker put in the cauldron at least 72% of vegetal oil (Palm, Copra and Olive). The 72% stamp ensures it. Consequently, you can see this stamp both on the white and the green Marseille Soap.
Savon de Marseille is traditionally green or white. The white soap is made with palm oil, the green with at least 50% olive oil. Both varieties are exquisite, ultra-moisturizing skin care. Marseille Soap is recommended by dermatologists throughout the world for dry skin and other ailments. Its incredible purity and moisturizing properties make it ideal for sensitive skins. In France it has been trusted for generations to cleanse everything from linens to little faces.
The ingredients are palm/olive oil, ash from Mediterranean sea plants, water, and sea salt. For crushed flower soaps- the finest natural fragrances, colors, essential oils and flowers from the South of France are added.
Both are made according to the strict standards for Savon de Marseille manufacture. In the heart of Marseille the legendary factory blends pure ingredients in huge, ancient cauldrons considered national treasures. They are then hand cut and stamped with the iconic markings protected by French law. For the Hard Milled, in a process both historic and modern, the mix is then mechanically cut and pressed into a harder soap of exceptional quality.
