Frenchsoaps - Our Story

Frenchsoaps UK was founded in 2012. 

Based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire,  we have a love for beautiful products and heartwarming fragrances. Our focus is on sourcing products that contain no parabens, no Sodium Laureth Sulfate and are phenoxyethanol free.

Our core products are made in the traditional way from long established savonneries and perfumers from all over France but particularly Provence. Local and natural ingredients are the basis of all these classic products: Lavender from the fields of Provence, perfumes from the famous fragrance town of Grasse and other natural ingredients such as Seaweed from Brittany!

Not only do our soaps look lovely, they smell beautiful, and are as simple and natural as possible. 

We have close relationships with the savonnieres and perfumeries that we work with, we enjoy meeting them (well who wouldn't like a trip to France every now and then!) and we know that they share our values of natural, fragrant, simple products. All our manufacturers are family businesses and are a real family affair with husbands, wives, daughters, sons, cousins and in-laws all involved. They recruit locals and many families have been involved with the savonneries for generations. Everyone involved is extremely proud of their products.

We are committed to bringing you high quality, special and unique products not commonly available in the UK. Our search for these products has taken us to some varied and interesting places in France, from the traditional Savonnerie in bustling Marseille, steeped in history and tradition, to the fragrant, calm and tranquil Provencal villages in the foothills of Mont Ventoux and the Luberon.... and of course Paris! 

We love our products and hope you do too! Why not get in touch with us? drop us an email, call us or leave a message on our Facebook page, we love to hear from you and we are happy to help you if you want advice or need some ideas.

Let us know what you love (and what you don't) we get some great suggestions from our customers!
