Our manufacturing methods
Our artisanal soaps are made by the process of cold saponification.
A solid soap is the product of a chemical reaction, called saponification, between a fatty substance (oil, butter) and a base, soda.
Cold saponification, or SAF, is a gentle and slow method that preserves all the properties of the ingredients used.
Soap saponified cold is gentle on the skin, and moisturizing by the addition of precious oil in overgrown and the presence of natural glycerin formed during the process.
It does not require the addition of potentially irritating chemicals in its composition,
It is therefore without EDTA, without paraben, without Laury sodium sulfate, or other preservative.
We strengthen the hydrating power of all our artisanal soaps by introducing honey or wax from our Norman apiaries in Bessin (between Caen and Bayeux). This regional honey, rich in fructose, and beeswax make the soap ideal for all those with sensitive skin, dry or very oily. These elements in synergy with the oils and butters used help fight against redness, irritation and other skin problems, by strengthening the hydrolipidic film of the skin
Our handmade soaps are designed without palm oil,
Colors are created from natural ingredients like clay or cocoa, charcoal, honey,
The plants used are all from organic farming
