Shower Gel or Solid Soap ?

  • 2 min read

Savon de Marseille soap holds a rich and storied history that dates back over three centuries. Originating in the coastal city of Marseille, France, this iconic soap has been a staple in households across the world.

First crafted in the 17th century, Savon de Marseille soap was created using a traditional method that involved only natural ingredients, such as olive oil and sea water. Its exceptional quality quickly gained popularity among the high society of France, as well as merchants and sailors who appreciated its versatility and cleansing properties.

Shower gel was created in 1978 by a Japanese laboratory, In the 1980's and 90's shower gels began to get traction in the market place, where they then become common place household items ( even we used them for awhile ).

Shower gels provided a great deal of range and choice never seen before, however they also came with some big side effects, namely the use of chemicals in the gels and also the damage done to the environment with plastic waste, as nearly all shower gels are placed in land fill, some now can be recycled, however there is a clear link to marine life impact with the migration of micro plastics into living organisms.

Skin irritation is also another side effect of shower gels due to the amount of chemicals used in them, dry skin, eczema etc

We offer a really great choice in bar soaps, that have no packaging impact on the environment post use, plus you can choose soaps which have a very natural set of ingredients to keep you free from the harm of harsh chemicals.

Bar soap will last much longer than shower gel, as we know most of it goes straight down the plug hole ! so you can save alot of money too with the use of bar soaps.

The Savon de Marseille soaps we sell do not go mushy, wont leave your skin dry and you can still benefit from a wonderful array of aromas in the bath or shower.
