Marseille Liquid Hand Soap
Hands down, good all around.
Fer à Cheval (Marseille’s oldest soap factory) has a range of new products using their classic soap ingredients—their liquid hand soap has all the benefits of the original with a useful hand pump for a tidy sink space. Hypoallergenic? Check. Certified organic? Of course. Free of petrochemicals, parabens, allergens and preservatives? You bet. It’s great for your skin—even sensitive types—and it smells nice, too. The Olive scent is strongly scented with a nutty fragrance while Végétal is a milder option. Fun fact! The name “Marseille Soap” is a protected designation—to qualify for this highly-coveted label, your soap has to be made in Provence with natural oils and just a handful of other ingredients: seawater, ash and lye. At Fer à Cheval, it’s a labor-intensive process that takes 10 days and starts with boiling the ingredients in ancient cauldrons overseen by a soap master and team of artisans.
