About Ingredients

 

We want you to have every confidence in our products, their natural origin, their authenticity and their provenance. Just like we sell our soaps “naked” we want to show you that we have nothing to hide when it comes to ingredients.

 

That’s why you will find listed here every single ingredient that is contained in either some or all of our Pure French Soaps. Made with natural ingredients and free from additives and nasty chemicals, our soaps should be perfect for even the most sensitive skin, but first a word of caution.

 

It should be remembered that even the most natural organic ingredients can be a source of reaction for certain individuals, or for those who suffer from allergies or skin problems (think poison ivy or peanuts for example). If you have, or suspect you have sensitive skin or if you have any concerns we would recommend you carry out a patch test. Lastly, if you know that you have an allergy to certain ingredients, then you can search for them here.

If you can’t find them great!
