Marseilles Soap Block
Manufactum has been a well kept secret among discerning consumers. Now, by word-of-mouth alone, it is being discovered by those who enjoy the finer things in life.

Manufactum offers a range of merchandise on the web and by mail order from kitchenware and furniture to clothing, tools, toys, gardening accessories and food.

This large block of Marseilles non-scented soap comes in a wooden box with a sliding top and cutting wire. You can cut off pieces of the size you require for use as hand, shower or bath soap.

Genoa was the region of origin of the finest soaps in Europe for a long time. After Louis XIV had induced the best Genoese soap boilers to move to France, a new centre of soap production arose around Marseilles and its products soon became world-famous.

Our manufacturer is located to the north of Marseilles, in the heart of ProvenÁe. He is one of the last 'maÓtres savonniers' in the honourable tradition of Marseilles soap making and produces soaps, body hygiene products, essences and other cosmetics strictly in line with the purity regulations in force since 1688.

Genuine Marseilles soaps are boiled from pure vegetable oils. Only natural ingredients, above all olive oil, are boiled in a copper pan to produce an outstandingly good soap with a high fat content (72% oil) and without alkali reaction. All products are free from synthetic colourings, animal fats, mineral oils and preservatives.

Marseilles Soap Block (weight 2,5 kg). Price £28.00
