In 1900, Marius Fabre founded his soap company in Salon de Provence. Today, the fourth generation of his family is carrying on the tradition of real Marseille soap with the same passion. This traditional know-how, handed down through generations in our family, guarantees that Marseille soap has kept its peerless quality over centuries. We invite you to discover our traditional soap factory, during a guided tour.
