Savon de Marseille is one of the most popular exports from southwestern France, and sandalwood is among its most beloved scents. A quick history lesson: olive oil has been used as a cleanser for centuries; the ancient Greeks used the emollient as the first form of soap. In the sixth century, the first olive-oil-based soap factory was established in Marseille. Each bar of Christophe Pourny True Marseille Soap carries on this tradition and contains a high olive-oil content that moisturizes skin as it cleanses.
Luxurious sandalwood essential oil is blended into each bar, filling any room with its distinctive warm and woody scent. What's more, this soap is very gentle, making it a natural choice for cleaning delicate laundry. It's even suitable for use as facial soap.
