Green French Utility Soap, Multi-Purpose Use
The Centuries-Old, French Cleaning Classic with a Modern twist -- Perfect for those looking for an effective, elegant solution to minimize products in their homes & keep their choices ECO-friendly.
Dishes? Laundry? Dry Hands? this multi-tasking soap can be used for EVERYTHING!
Keep a cube next to your sink to wash your dishes [simply wet a dish-brush & rub in a circular motion on top of the block to load it,] or grate it to use in the laundry! An amazing hand soap, it is equally fabulous as a full body cleanser in the shower. Our soap is 100% natural & chemical free, so it is safe to use in streams or lakes when camping. Zero waste. Zero fuss. Luxurious & effective.
Each is hand cut. XL cubes are roughly 15 oz & 3" square, small cubes about 8 oz & roughly 2.25" square. Deluxe household blocks are the size of 2 XL cubes, or about 1.9 pounds each.
Our best-selling French Utility Soap is a Savon de Marseille style soap, available in traditional cubes or in bars. Our take on this classic features the addition of green Zeolite Clay, giving it a gorgeous, tonal green color & increased cleansing efficacy, while remaining mild & gentle. Our soap is hand-crafted & small-batch produced, with a lengthy cure-time. We are pleased to be offering it in classic "cube" form. Our rustic, irregular sized pieces are hand cut & completely unique.
The large over-sized cubes are about 3" square, so do not fit in most soap dishes; we think they look particularly charming sitting on a vintage tea saucer in place of a traditional soap-dish & sell vintage saucers separately for just that purpose! These traditional square blocks are meant to be rubbed to use rather than picked up as you would bar-soap.
Since 1688, Savon de Marseille has been used to clean everything from infants to laundry & dishes-- truly an all-purpose soap. Made of 72% olive oil, Savon de Marseille is mild & one of the most moisturizing soaps you will find.
