Marseille soap is the heir to Savon d’Alep. It is also quite similar to Aleppo soap, the difference is that it does not contain bay leaves. The water used and the saponification technique also differ, Aleppo soap being made with highly mineralized water whereas, on the contrary, Savon de Marseille is made with softer water and steamed in the cauldron.
A soap of exceptional quality and good for your skin and your health.
Indeed, the Crusaders, back from Aleppo, brought back Aleppo soap, which was a great success in the West. But since it was an imported product, it was very expensive. This is why many soap factories have sprung up around the Mediterranean, then in Marseille.
Alas, today, Marseille soap has too often become industrial, and contains palm oil, copra and chemicals.
So would you like to discover the original Savon de Marseille, the one that was made in the 15th century?
The real, artisanal, cooked in the old-fashioned cauldron, then cut by hand, without palm oil?
