Fer à Cheval

Marseille, France
French for “horseshoe,” Fer à Cheval was founded in an era when it was customary to choose names associated with good luck. And good luck they’ve had—Fer à Cheval has been operating since 1856 and is now the oldest soap company in Marseille to continuously use traditional, age-old methods. These hard soaps are crafted using four simple ingredients: sea water, vegetable oil, ash, and lye. The result is natural, certified organic, gentle products beloved for their simple goodness.
