EXFOLIATING BLACK SOAP 200 G
This soap, made from Marius Fabre black soap with olive oil, is an innovative product because it only contains plant-based ingredients: olive oil and crushed olive stones, for a natural exfoliating formula. As such, it differs from all other «abrasive» soaps made from solvents and oil-based surfactants, which effectively clean hands, but damage them – and the environment – in the process.
All these natural products are manufactured in Provence for Pébéo. By the Marius Fabre soap factory. The seal of quality of the French company appears on the packaging of all the products.
With raw materials in abundance, such as olive oil, soda and salt from Camargue, the region of Provence became famous for its excellent quality soap in the Middle Ages. In 1688, by the Edict of Colbert, Louis XIV institutionalised soap, establishing manufacturing rules: In addition to cooking in large furnaces, only pure olive oils must be used as vegetable oils, prohibiting any animal fat. This decree allowed Marseille soaps to acquire a reputation that will stay with them forever.
