Why is this olive soap made in Marseilles?
Making soap requires a source of fat and olive oil is considered one of the purest sources. The city of Marseilles, located at the heart of Provence, is surrounded by fields of olive trees, typical from the Mediterranean coast. Olive oil is an abundant resource in the region, so it was only natural that local soap artisans and factories would use olive oil to produce their wonderful soaps.
