Main differences between our soap and the so-called "Savon de Marseille"

What can you do with our soap?

Here are different ways you can use our soap, along with some DIY recipes: 

To wash your body
Our soap can be used for the whole body. A small quantity is enough for it to be efficient. The best way to use it is to take a wet washcloth and rub it ten times on the soap (that should be enough to wash your entire body). If you prefer using liquid soap, you can melt our soap in water and put it in an empty sterilised jar/bottle as per the recipe on our soap flake page.

To wash your hair
You can also use a washcloth to wash your hair. Rub the washcloth over the soap ten times, then rub the top and sides of your head three times in a circular movement. This will give you enough soap to perfectly wash your hair.

Careful: this is not an industrial shampoo, so consider rinsing your hair abundantly with water to avoid getting greasy hair. To finish off, you can also use an apple cider vinegar rinse (1 measure of vinegar for 10 measures of water).

If you have always used industrial shampoo, you should be aware that your hair might seem a bit greasy for a few weeks. This is a normal reaction as your hair has gotten used to the silicones in your regular shampoo. It therefore takes a little while before your hair gets used to the absence of silicones and starts being capable of absorbing the glycerin.

If you have long hair, here is some advice from Ines, one of our loyal customers: “I pour some soap in my hands and rub it on my scalp with the tip of my fingers to lift the roots. I then rinse my hair thoroughly with water and tilt my head forward for the soap to run from the roots to the ends of my hair. I finish with a cold-water rinse, this way the cuticles close nice and tightly, avoiding the hair getting from greasy too quickly. My hair is nourished, shiny, soft, and my curls are beautiful.”

To shave
Our soap contains enough grease to be used as shaving balm or foam. Simply moisten your soap bar, then apply it to the area to be shaved. Shave, rinse, and dab with a towel. Thanks to our natural soap, you won’t be needing any aftershave.

Frequently asked questions

How to cut the soap bar?
The 1kg soap bar can easily be cut with a large knife with smooth blades.

How to store the soap?
To prevent our soap from melting prematurely, we recommend keeping it on a soap holder, protected from the damp. This way, it can dry between uses. This might mean taking out of the shower if necessary. We also advise leaving it to dry a few days after reception. This will make it more economical as it will be drier and will get used up less quickly.

Can the soap’s glycerin clog my pipework?
To avoid your washing machine/dishwasher pipes getting clogged because of the glycerin in our organic olive oil soap, we recommend about once a month cleaning your machine by launching an empty cycle with soda crystals set to a high temperature (+60°C).

You can also pour soda crystals down your bath or shower drain if you think it’s getting clogged.

Can your soap be used to clean reusable nappies, period underwear, or reusable sanitary towels?  
Using a homemade laundry detergent (with or without glycerin) can indeed in the long run clog these products, making them less absorbing. The presence of glycerin in laundry detergents is often proscribed but this is usually when glycerin has been added to soap and/or present in huge quantities, which isn’t the case with our soap.

In any case, we recommend declogging your nappies, period underwear, and sanitary towels regularly, which you can do at the same time as your washing machine. This allows you to clean them thoroughly and avoid all absorption problems.

To do so, we recommend launching a high-temperature wash with 1-2 tbsp of soda crystals.

This way, it allows you to use our soap to make your laundry liquid as well as washing your nappies or your menstrual underwear with it, if you regularly degrease your machine.
