Further Reading: Savon de Marseilles, or Marseilles Soap, has been made in France for 600 years. Traditionally green or white, it contains at least 70% vegetable oils, typically a mix of olive, coconut, or palm oils with no animal additives or by products. Authentic Marseilles soap takes weeks to make, beginning with a heating process that lasts more than a week then left to harden. Once solid, the soap is cut and dried in the sun. Only five soap makers in the world today still craft Marseilles soap by these original standards. Marius Fabre prides itself on being one of those remaining makers, crafting their products for over 110 years. Shop our entire collection of Marius Fabre products here
