Christophe Pourny

True Marseille Soap Set


Shipped from Christophe Pourny

Editor’s Notes:

Savon de Marseille is one of the most popular exports from southwestern France, and we don’t foresee that changing any time soon. A quick history lesson: olive oil has been used as a cleanser for centuries; the ancient Greeks used the emollient as the first form of soap. In the sixth century, the first olive-oil-based soap factory was established in Marseille. Each bar of Christophe Pourny True Marseille Soap carries on this tradition and contains a high olive-oil content that moisturizes skin as it cleanses.

Luxurious essential oils are blended into each bar, filling any room with punchy citrus, soothing green tea, fresh apricot, or nourishing, yet bitter, olive-oil essence. What’s more, these soaps are very gentle, making them a natural choice for cleaning delicate laundry. They’re even suitable for use as facial soap.

Please note that the Apricot True Marseille Soap contains shells of apricot kernels and therefore makes for an excellent exfoliant.
