Marseille soap, also known as Savon de Marseille, is a traditional soap that originated in the city of Marseille, France. It is a type of hard soap that is made from vegetable oils, typically olive oil, along with other natural ingredients such as palm oil or coconut oil. Marseille soap is renowned for its simplicity and mildness, as it does not contain any synthetic additives or fragrances.

The traditional method of making Marseille soap dates back several centuries and involves a lengthy process. The soap is made through the saponification of vegetable oils, where the oils are heated with an alkali solution, such as sodium hydroxide (lye). This process creates soap molecules and glycerin. The mixture is then poured into large molds and allowed to harden for several weeks.

Marseille soap is often appreciated for its versatility and gentle nature. It can be used for various purposes, including personal hygiene, laundry, household cleaning, and even as a shampoo for pets. It is considered to be environmentally friendly due to its biodegradable and natural composition.

Recherché soaps are all hand made and hand cut in triangular pieces weighing approx. 150g each. No two piece is the same, but it will always be of the highest quality.
