DE L’ATLANTIQUE is rooted in the tradition and know-how handed down from one generation of French master soap makers to the next. SAVONNERIE DE L’ATLANTIQUE brings together, in a modern facility, all the skills that legitimately entitle it to boast the “Savonnerie” [soap factory] appellation:
1°- The production and marketing of solid and liquid soap bases, comprising “Marseille” soap bases (1) (saponification of neutral oils), soap bases made from fatty acids and “speciality” soap bases containing fine fats (olive oil, sweet almond oil, Tahitian monoi, fair-trade shea butter and so on).
2°- The bespoke production of packaged finished products, from Marseille soap to dermatological soap via toilet soap and household soap.
3°- The entitlement to set the following seals on the whole of our know-how:
Natural and Organic Cosmetic certified by ECOCERT (2), Natural Detergent certified by ECOCERT (3), and the European ECOLABEL (4).
