Red Clay Soap

Here at The Candle Tree, we sell a wide range of French soaps, all with equally beneficial and unique qualities. One of these special soaps is our red clay soap, which cleanses, detoxifies and exfoliates the skin, leaving it refreshed, toned and rejuvenated. The aniseed essential oil in this bar is perfect for awakening the senses in the morning, ensuring you are feeling positive for the day ahead. The antiseptic qualities of cedarwood are fantastic for the skin. The combination of cedarwood and aniseed help to ease cold symptoms, with their spritely scent. The ground cinnamon spice included may also help skin conditions and acts as an antiseptic. 

Red clay is globally renowned for its cleansing and anti-aging benefits, and our argile rouge (red clay) savon de Marseille soap makes it easier than ever to use!

Gentle Skin Detox

One of the reasons that French red clay is so popular, is because it provides mild and gentle detox and exfoliation. This daily soap is gentle enough for sensitive skin, as well as ageing skin. Its naturally occurring trace minerals will help to soothe irritated skin.


One of the most challenging things about clay is that it is difficult to apply from head-to-toe. This soap allows you all the accessible beauty benefits of red clay, without all the mess. Use daily as you would any normal bar soap.

Tone and Perfect

This natural savon de Marseille soap will detox, tone, and firm your skin, leaving you with a healthy and luminous glow. Perfect for treating and soothing acne, and for combating the visible signs of ageing.
