Olive La Corvette Marseille soap shavings are made from 100% vegetable oils, in Marseille, using the traditional cauldron cooking process. They are guaranteed free from palm oil, colorants, fragrances and preservatives. This product is extremely gentle on all delicate textiles (silk, wool, lace...). By dissolving the shavings in very hot water, this product can be used to make your own laundry detergent. It's a natural, effective alternative to all synthetic detergents.
The color of the soap can vary from soft green to dark green, depending on the production batch, due to the vegetable oils used from one cauldron to another. This gives our soaps the authenticity of a product made from materials of natural origin, and in no way alters the quality of the finished product.
