French Merchants


Maison du Savon de Marseille

Sold out.

Donkey milk was often used in antique times. We know that Cleopatra would bath in donkey milk to maintain her beauty and youthful skin. In the Roman era, the Napoleonic and Roman bourgeoisie also coveted donkey milk. Women would bath in it to uphold the fairness of their skin. La Maison du Savon de Marseille has created a soap that contains fresh, organic donkey milk from a farm in the rolling hills of Gers. This farm is part of the APLA (the Association of Producers of Donkey Milk), which ensures the quality of the products, the fair treatment of the animals and their environment.
