Traditional Marseille Soaps

"Savon de Marseille"

For hands that do dishes… this truly is a miracle soap! Gentle, pure and naturally anti-bacterial, there is much to love about Savon de Marseille. This iconic soap has been hand made in Marseille by master craftsmen in copper cauldrons using a traditional process for over 600 years and can be used in a variety of ways in and around the home.


Grated, shredded or blended, Savon de Marseille can be used as laundry detergent, a powerful stain remover, as a natural and eco-friendly pest control solution, a dishwashing liquid, an antiseptic cleaner, an insect repellent, a dog shampoo and even as a beauty product. Lasting twice as long as ordinary soaps it’s economical, can be used in the shower, and you can even wash your hair and brush your teeth with it! Really!


Containing only natural ingredients and a minimum of 72% Olive or vegetable oil, Savon de Marseille is moisturising and nourishing, pH neutral, without additives, hypoallergenic, naturally biodegradable and its pure and gentle characteristics are renowned the world over for soothing even the most sensitive skin.

Anyone who’s had the pleasure of using chemical-free hand-crafted soap knows you can literally feel the difference on your skin - cleansing, but not at all drying. True Savon de Marseille soap takes things to a different level and really must be experienced to appreciate. It’s an extremely effective cleanser and unbelievably gentle at the same time.

Please be aware that these are genuine Savon de Marseille Soaps which traditionally are not perfect or unblemished. Due to their hand-made nature, they may exhibit some minor chips, indentations or scratches which only add to their rustic charm and authenticity, and of course does not detract from their quality.
