Marius Fabre soap is not harsh for the skin. It is often recommended by the medical profession as an alternative to other modern products which can cause skin problems. It is also recommended for washing delicate fabrics (silk, lace, baby clothes).
Most commercial soaps and shower gels are made from products which are petroleum based or animal products. Marius Fabre soaps and shower gels are based only on vegetable oils : olive, copra, and palm. Containing no phosphates or synthetic substances, they do not pollute rivers thus helping to preserve the environment.
Necessary research and quality controls are carried out in specialized laboratories which do not use animals. It can be used, however, for bathing domestic animals.
Marius Fabre soap lasts up to twice as long as ordinary soap. This then makes it an economical product.
