Marseille Liquid Olive Oil Black Soap
A little goes a long way.
Made from olive oil without any preservatives, dyes or fragrances, this liquid black soap is a all-natural and certified organic alternative to chemical detergents and cleaners. And it’s economical, too: A few dabs here and there will generally do the trick! For kitchens, bathrooms and pans, scrub some liquid black soap in with a sponge, then rinse with hot water. For floors, mix 2 tbsp of soap per 5L of hot water. You can even prevent aphids from invading your garden by spraying a 5 tbsp to 1L water mixture on your plants. All purpose and economical? Yes please. Great for sensitive skin and hypoallergenic? Even better. 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.
