Presentation

Pushing open the door of La Savonnerie de Marcel in Villeneuve-en-Retz means meeting passionate craftsmen who make soap using the traditional, ancestral method of cold saponification.
From a grandfather who was a soap-maker came a passion for creating exceptional soaps. The secret recipe for super-gentle, organic soaps?
  • Simple, high-quality ingredients (locally-grown plants, virgin vegetable oils, milks, clays...)
  • Entirely manual work, without machines, gives each soap a unique character and incomparable quality.

True organic and fair prices!
Emmanuel & Maryline, soap-makers with a passion for and commitment to quality, hold high the banner of healthier everyday consumption. Designed for everyday family use, Marcel's soaps are among the cheapest on the market (price per kilo)!

To remember: All our soaps are Nature & Progrès certified. This independent label guarantees 100% organic, local and fair-trade ingredients.
