Marseilles Soap (French milled soap with oil-based fragrance)
Why is it so special?
Loyal admirers of Marseilles soap recognize it for its gentleness and cleansing properties. It is known to lather well and rise off completely and since it does not strip the skin of its natural oils, it is considered a natural moisturizer.

Without fragrance, it gently cleanses the skin without stripping its natural oils. It is recommended for all skin types as well as household use. It is naturally glycerinated, biodegradable and free of animal fats and synthetic surfactants. Bottled with a convenient flip cap in a recyclable plastic 1-liter container. Made in France.
Ingredients: Water, palmitic acid, oleic acid, potassium hydroxide, lauric acid, linoleic acid, myristic acid, stearic acid, sodium chloride, glycerin, tetrasodium EDTA.
