Voted "Best Marseille Soap" by Le Curionaute Buyer's Guide
Rediscover the Savon de Marseille faithful to its origins:
Pure olive and without palm or copra, it is a very soft soap and very healthy, pure olive and without chemicals.
Made in France by the Grand Master Savonnier Hassan HARASTANI.
Savon de Marseille is the heir of Aleppo Soap.
Indeed, the Crusaders, back from Aleppo brought Aleppo soap, which was a great success in the West.
But since it was an import product, it was very expensive.
That's why, many soap factories have emerged around the Mediterranean, then in Marseille.
In the seventeenth century, Louis XIV, regulates the manufacture of soap Marseille. "It will not be possible to use in the manufactory of soap, with the barrille, soda or ashes, any fat, butter or other matters; but only pure olive oils, and without a mixture of grease, under penalty of confiscation of the goods.
Alas, today the noble olive oil, considered too expensive, is replaced by palm oil and animal fat.
At Alepia, we manufacture in the cauldron, the old, the true soap of Marseille origins, pure olive, the one that has made the pride of France for centuries.
Alas, today, Marseille soap has become too often industrial, and contains palm oils, copra chemicals, sometimes even animal fats!
So would you like to discover the Savon de Marseille origins, the one that was made under the reign of Louis XIV?
The real, artisanal, cooked in an old-fashioned cauldron, then cut by hand?
A soap of exceptional quality and good for your skin and your health.
So try our soap, made in France by Mr. Harastani, the master soap maker, who put all his science and his passion to bring back from the past this legendary soap, but alas today betrayed!
It is quite close to the Aleppo soap, the difference is that it does not contain laurel. The water used and the saponification technique also differ, the Aleppo soap being made with a very mineralized water whereas, on the contrary, Marseille Soap is made with a softer water and cooked in the steamed cauldron.
