LA CORVETTE

Consumers are looking for the real know-how with a strong story that provides warranty of quality, a warranty which La Corvette offers. The La Corvette range was rebranded to give it a more contemporary look while perpetuating the ancestral craft of French history in soap making. It combines Marseille tradition with modernity through a range of authentic products that care for your body and home, many of which are Ecocert-certified. It is a response to today's values – a return both to natural, environmentally friendly practices and to authentic products made in France that are of indisputably high quality.   HOW TO RECOGNISE REAL MARSEILLE SOAP? Real Marseille soap is made: ·         solely from vegetable fats (no ‘sodium tallowate’, animal fat), with no colouring, no fragrance, no additive and no processing aids. ·         in Marseille or the Bouches du Rhône area. ·         in traditional cauldrons in accordance with the process of soap making. La Corvette is made by the Savonnerie du Midi, one of the last two soap factories in Marseille. The last four remaining soap factories in the Bouches-du-Rhône region of France (including the Savonnerie du Midi) decided to join forces in 2011 by setting up the Union of Marseille Soap Professionals (UPSM), with the aim of protecting real Marseille soap. They signed a Quality Charter that guarantees the composition of genuine Marseille soap as well as the process used to manufacture it and its geographical origin. La Corvette products are fully compliant with the requirements set out in this charter and bear the registered logo. Products bearing this logo are made of real Marseille soap, as defined by the Union of Marseille Soap Professionals (UPSM) OUR TIPS   ·         To ward off night cramps: Place a piece of Marseille soap under your bed ! ·         To remove stains: rub the stain with slightly damp Marseille soap, before washing.
