Product FAQs

Where is your soap from?

Our soaps are official Savons de Marseille, they are made in France in La Savonnerie du Fer à Cheval which guarantees 100% vegetal recipe with no added colourings, fragrances, preservatives or any artificial ingredient. The soap is made in the sameway as it has been been for hundreds of years. It is only made in the Marseille region of Provence in France.

Where are your brushes from?

Our brushes are made in China. 

Why change from a sponge to a brush? 

We wrote a blog about this but in short most kitchen sponges and scourers are made from plastic, which cannot be recycled. It also releases micro-plasticsinto the ocean.

Is Savon de Marseille as powerful as washing liquid?

Our savon de Marseille will leave your dishes as clean as washing up liquid, yes! It might take you a few times to get used to it but it foams and removes the grease. We will tell you a secret, if you let your dishes soak it is even better! Less elbow grease and more results!

How long will my soap last for?

It will of course depend how much you use it, for what you use it: only to wash dishes? Wash hands? Also for clothing?

To give you an idea we are a family of 3, wash all our kitchen knives, pots and pans by hands three times a day and a soap lasts us between 6-8 months!

Is there any plastic in my order?

We will send your order in a cardboard box and limit any additional paper or wrapping but for the plastic or paper wrapping around your soap, in order to protect it.

Are your products Vegan?

The Savon de Marseille soaps are Vegan, as are our anti-stain soaps. Our brushes are cruelty-free too :) If we start selling any non-vegan product we will let you know!
