Saponification is the process that produces soap by mixing a base (usually sodium hydroxide) with a fat – usually vegetable oils or animal fats. In basic terms, soap is a salt that is rendered from a fatty acid. In the case of Savon de Marseille, the use of olive oil is standard practice and the production of savon noir is no different.
The Archer household has been using this amazing soap for about a year now. We can say from real experience that it does everything it claims! From the HE washing machine to the kitchen it out performs all our other soap. This spring, we had particularly bad infestations of aphids and scale on our new quince bushes. With in one month they were goners... the bugs that is. As it's concentrated, it can be can diluted. A little goes a long way. A work horse of a soap and voted product of the year for 2014 by Consumer Survey of Product Innovation.
