Black LIQUID SOAP from Pebeo made the old-fashioned way, using the traditional method from Marseille. Cooked in a cauldron, made from vegetable oils and potash. It does not contain animal fat or synthetic surfactant (cleansing substance), nor tetrasodium EDTA and BHT (chemical preservatives). Its formula is kind to the skin and the environment, as it is biodegradable and is stored in a refillable and recyclable bottle.
These natural products are manufactured in Provence for Pébéo by the Marius Fabre soap factory. The seal of quality of the French company appears on the packaging of all the products.
With raw materials in abundance, such as olive oil, soda and salt, the region of Provence became famous for its excellent quality soap in the Middle Ages. In 1688, Louis XIV institutionalized soap, establishing manufacturing rules. In addition to cooking in large furnaces, only pure olive oils could be used as vegetable oils, prohibiting any animal fat. This decree allowed Marseille soaps to acquire a reputation that will stay with them forever.
