Valobra Balsamo Soap
Since 1903, the Valobra family of Genova Italy have produced exceptional bathing soaps. This legacy of excellence in soap making persists today as Valobra soap masters hand pick natural ingredients and season each bar for 6 months, hard milling them several times for long use and luxurious bathing pleasure. At 200 grams, Valobra's Balsamo soap is the largest soap bar that the company makes. Its size, its subtle yet distiguished fragrance and its long lifespan make it particularly popular with men. Invigorating balsam is blended with lecithin and vitamin E resulting in a soothing soap particularly well suited to oily complexions and combination skin.

It was almost a century ago that Virgilio Valobra established his plant for the manufacture of soap in Genoa Italy. He was determined to adhere strictly to the formulas and methods of the master soap manufacturers of the 18th century; those masters of soap making had made the Riviera between Portofino and Marseille a region renowned for the finest soap in the world. The House of Valobra is still producing its soaps with the same respect for tradition today, using only the purest natural ingredients and extracts.
Each bar of Valobra is manufactured with the commitment to using the purest ingredients: the exclusive use of pure and selected ingredients and a base of virgin coconut oil results in a substance superior for protecting the skin. During processing, Valobra employs the ancient and expensive "boiling for strength" method to ensure the integrity of their ingredients stay intact. The final phase of production is seasoning which takes at least six months. During this phase, the soap becomes a highly refined and effective agent for gentle cleansing of the skin. In addition, it produces a harder longer lasting soap.
