Since 1900 and for four generations, the Fabre family has been making soap in Salon-de-Provence using traditional Marseille soap-making methods. Cooked in cauldrons using vegetable oils—with no added coloring, fragrance, or synthetic products—olive oil Marseille soap is free of impurities and is gentle on the skin and on the environment. The nourishing properties of olive oil help your skin keep a more natural moisture balance.
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 productshere.
