Fer a Cheval Genuine French Marseille Olive Oil Soap Bar, 250 gr.

100% authentic Marseille soap; often imitated, but never equaled.

With already 160 years of existence, the Savonnerie Fer à Cheval carries on a recipe passed down to each new generation of master soap-makers. Fer à Cheval's soap factory, firmly rooted in living heritage, is proud to continue to craft a key product in Marseille culture with respect for tradition, attention to detail and a great deal of love.

Saponification takes place in old cauldrons according to a traditional method, manufactured in five steps: pasting, graining out, boiling, washing and liquidation. These five steps are the reason for the iconic soap's renown.

This soap is exclusively plant-based. It does not contain any preservatives, dyes, additives or animal fat. No palm oil. 

Biodegradable and environmentally-friendly, it represents an ecological alternative to chemicals found in most skin care and housekeeping products.

Founded in 1856, Fer a Cheval still uses the same cauldron-based method following the recipe certified by Colbert's Edict in 1688 and consolidated by Napoleon Bonaparte's decree of 1812.
