A simple luxury at an inexpensive cost for soft skin.

For quite some time I had in my possession a couple of the traditional green cube soaps from Marseilles. They were beautiful, but I wasn’t using them because I didn’t fully appreciate them. Until now.

The traditional Marseilles cubes of soap, for decades, going back to the 19th century, were solely green in color as they are made with at least 72% olive oil. While now a variety of colors are available, there are still key tenets to ensure traditional is adhered to and you are receiving the product as it was designed and why it offers the benefits it does – no animal products, artificial fragrances, coloring, or preservatives are ever used.

In fact, this traditional French soap must only contain four ingredients: vegetable oils, water, salt, and soda, and pure Marseille soap is made with organic olive oil from Provence.

For fewer than five Euros, you can welcome into your life – use in the shower, use to clean clothes, to clean the house – the traditional soap that will, if you use it regularly as I do in the shower, last for at least 3-4 months. Your skin will be more nourished and not dry, you won’t have to worry about excess packages to dispose of and it will look beautiful in your bathroom. 🙂

There are more than a few places to purchase Marseilles soaps and have them shipped to the states. I purchase mine from Savonnerie de la Licorne, and usually purchase a handful to make the shipping cost worth the trip.
