We stand for a return to natural and ecological values, and to support traditional methods that have been cultivated for centuries.


Inspired by the art of French master soap-making, and hand-crafted by small family “savonneries” using only natural and organic ingredients, our soaps are truly a slice of tradition. But they’re more than just soap, our beautiful bars are actually artisan, craft skincare products that gently cleanse your skin and leave it soft, smooth and moisturised.


It’s simple really, we sell products we love made by people we trust, and we’d love to share with you the very best that Provence has to offer.


We’re proud of our products and we're proud of the people who make them.


Marseille soaps are exquisite gentle soaps with exceptional skincare properties and they’ve been produced by French artisan craft master soap-makers using traditional methods for over 600 years. 


Our soaps are sourced directly from the producers in Marseille, hand-crafted using fresh ingredients they conform fully to UK and European regulations on cosmetics. They’re 100% natural, free from SLS, silicon and artificial pigments and are dermatologically tested, cruelty-free and suitable for all skin types.

Until the late 19th Century in Marseille, hundreds of small family “savonneries” produced France’s iconic Savon de Marseille. Sadly, all but a handful now remain.  With the introduction of synthetic detergents, industrialisation, the growth of supermarkets and more recently counterfeit copies, they have all but disappeared.


Happily, today, there is somewhat of a renaissance. Consumers are rediscovering the environmentally friendly natural virtues of Savon de Marseille, and choosing them as a refreshing alternative to synthetic, chemical and petroleum-based products.


We’re wholeheartedly committed to supporting them!


We’re passionate about Savon-de-Marseille and we’re passionate about our planet. We firmly believe that a small contribution from all of us can make a big difference and that being part of a natural living world, we must consider our impact and give back more than we take.


That’s why we have a zero waste, zero plastic, environmental policy and refuse to sell any products in plastic bottles or using plastic pumps. All of our soaps are sold "naked" without plastic and ​packaged in 100% eco-friendly, bio-degradable or recyclable materials.


Why not join us? Make the switch, go back to the bar, and say no to plastic!

Like the living heritage savonneries in Marseille, Pure French Soaps is a small business and behind every small business is a family.


Every family has a dream, and ours is for a plastic and pollution free, healthy living earth for our future generations.

We firmly believe our products are perfect for both you and for our environment and when you purchase your Savon de Marseille French soaps from us, you’ll be making a positive contribution to our planet.


Please help us turn the tide on plastic, and remember, when you support us, you support our dream!



We absolutely guarantee you 100% that all of our soaps are the genuine article. Not old stock, not cheap copies, but freshly hand-crafted in Marseille by French, artisan craft master soap-makers using centuries old traditional methods with natural and organic raw materials from sustainable sources. 


Just the way it should be!
