100% vegetal, natural soaps hand-crafted in the South of France with only pure ingredients and time-tested techniques passed down through generations of master soap makers. Authentic Marseille Soap is made from vegetable oils – no coloring, no added fragrances and no synthetic additives. Marseille soaps are particularly gentle on the skin and on the environment. The fine white powder on the surface of the soap is sea salt residue, which will disappear once the soap is wet. This beloved characteristic affirms the authenticity of genuine Savon de Marseille.
