Savon de Marseille Aloe Vera Soap

Our 125g Savon de Marseille Aloe Vera Soap is beautifully enriched with BIO shea butter. Artisan handcrafted French vegetable soap, certified without animal fat and made in Marseille from rigorously selected raw materials.

Aloe Vera has been used in skin care for thousands of years. Egyptian queens such as Cleopatra and Nefertiti believed that bathing in 'the plant of immortality' would enhance and prolong their beauty. Alexander The Great used Aloe Vera as a healing solution for wounded soldiers on the battlefield. In early modern medicine, it was used to heal and calm the skin. It is known as the “miracle plant” in Ayurvedic medicine.

These days Aloe Vera is included in many of skin creams and cosmetics. In fact, many skin care and make up products list Aloe Vera as the first ingredient, as a highly beneficial replacement for water. Its benefits are due to a combination of a very wide range of goodies including Vitamins A and B, folic acid, enzymes, proteins, amino acids, and good fatty acids. 

Aloe Vera extract is best obtained from the flesh of its inner leaf. Aloe Vera juice, extract or oil helps rejuvenate the skin and promote healing of wounds and treatment of sunburn. It also adds a wonderful texture to soaps, leaving the skin soft and smooth.

The Aloe, which has a pH similar to our own skin, is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. It is also known for its ability to relieve itching and its moisturising effect on the skin. It is soothing, emollient, antibacterial, promotes the growth of new skin, moisturises, and protects against the effects of ageing. It is rich in natural moisture and also helps the skin keep its natural moisture too.

Use this French beauty bar to cleanse from head-to-toe, even on your face. It will help to soothe inflammation, and its antiseptic properties can be used to cleanse sunburns, cuts, and other minor abrasions. Most over-the-counter soap is made with harsh chemicals that strip your skin of its natural pH balance. However, aloe’s pH is similar to that of natural skin pH, so you can cleanse without any harsh drying effects.

When you use our Aloe Vera savon de Marseille bar as your daily soap, you will enjoy super soft and ultra-hydrated skin. The combination of aloe and shea butter provide you with a cleaner that doubles as your daily moisturiser. This gentle cleanser is perfect for the entire family, even for young infants and children!
