Savonnerie du Midi, founded in 1894, is one of the last traditional soap factories in Marseille. A shop & and a Museum were opened to the public on the production site in 2018 tracing the history of Marseille soap.
The factory makes and markets soaps for cleaning and the body, in particular traditional Marseille soap.
The soaps and cleaning products are marketed to the general public under different brands.
Savonnerie du Midi is commited to promoting traditional Marseille soap, and is a co-founder of the Marseille Union of Professional Soapmakers (UPSM), an association created in 2011.
The Savonnerie champions Marseille soap made in the Marseille region using traditional processes: made in cauldrons exclusively with vegetable oils (72% minimum) without dyes and fragrances.
