In the 19th century in Marseille, hundreds of small scale manufacturers were producing artisanal soap. An iconic product of Marseille. For one manufacturer in particular, this was the beginning of a very special journey.
In the year 1856, on chemin de Saint-Marthe, a candle manufacturer quickly and exclusively became dedicated to the craft of Marseille Soap. After an acquisition in 1895, the factory was producing soap on behalf of multiple brands, including Let Chat. Later in the year 1953 this manufacturer assumed charge of perpetuating a historic brand. Since 2003, this brand remains the factories only representative: Fer à Cheval.
