Since 1900 in Salon-de-Provence, the Marius Fabre soap factory has been perpetuating the prestigious tradition of true Marseilles soap for four generations. It is now the last remaining independent family business, heir to this ancestral craft. All Marius Fabre soaps are 100% pure vegetable, without artificial colors or preservatives, unlike the majority of commercial soaps and shower gels. The Marius Fabre Savon de Marseille production procedure guarantees "extra pure" soap which contains no impurities. It takes care of all skin types, and is particularly suitable for sensitive skin (babies, people suffering with allergies etc). Olive oil offers excellent moisturising properties: Marius Fabre olive oil-based soap helps prevent the skin drying out. Used as a cube or in flakes, it is also recommended for gently washing delicate fabrics (baby clothes, fragile material such as wool, silk or lace etc).
