Christophe Pourny

True Marseille Soap in Verbena


Shipped from Christophe Pourny

Editor’s Notes:

Savon de Marseille is one of the most popular exports from southwestern France, and verbena is among its most beloved scents. 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 verbena essential oil is blended into each bar, and what’s more, this soap is very gentle, making it a natural choice for cleaning delicate laundry. It’s even suitable for use on the face.
