Cold saponification

Learn how our soaps are made and why we cold saponify them!

The origin of this ancestral know-how

Cold Soap, a new product? Quite the contrary!

Cold soap making is according to Pliny the Elder (1st century Roman writer and naturalist) a Gallic invention. The Celts used goat fat and birch ash to make their soaps.

Unlike Marseille and Aleppo Soaps, cold soap does not heat up, it is carefully rested for 1 month and thus retains the properties and benefits of all its ingredients.

Cold saponification makes it possible to design soaps enriched with precious oils, scented with essential oils and completed with many natural additions with innumerable virtues.

The result is incomparable, a more pleasant, softer soap that deeply nourishes the skin.

No more feeling of stretched skin after the soap has passed!

Passed down from generation to generation, it is this family know-how of Master Savonnier that La Savonnerie de la Chapelle applies by engaging in a continual search for perfection and novelty, to make our soaps and our products, much more than ‘a simple treatment, a real elixir of well-being.
