The exclusive composition of Fer a Cheval Pure Olive Bar Marseille Soap 2kg, made exclusively from olive oil, complies with the Edict of Colbert of 1688, according to which only olive oils should be used in the production of genuine Marseille soap.
Marseille Soap is iconic and 'probably the most versatile soap in the world', it's certainly some of the best.
