Our Savon de Marseille soaps are created by the Savonnerie du Midi in Provence. The Savonnerie du Midi is one of the last remaining soap factories in Marseille that still uses the traditional expertise of a Maître Savonnier – a Master Soap Maker.
The Savonnerie has used time-honoured methods for creating France’s favourite soap for 120 years. They continue to make Marseille soaps the old fashioned way – boiled in a cauldron.
These iconic soaps have been made in this same traditional way since the middle ages. For this reason, The Savonnerie du Midi have the coverted certification of “L’Union des Professionnels du Savon de Marseille”.
