A historic heritage for Marseille

Soap making became a speciality of Marseille from the 15th century. The geographical location of Marseille with its port made it a favourite place for the manufacture of Marseille soap and for commercial exchanges.

Marseille quickly became known as the capital of soap. The mastery of the know-how of the "master soap maker" is specifically located in Marseille. Moreover, the raw materials were in abundance in the region: olive oil from Provence, salt and natural soda from the plants of the Camargue saline environment.

Marseille soap then enjoyed a strong reputation.
