A CENTURY-OLD KNOW-HOW STEEPED IN TRADITIONAL TECHNIQUES
Pierre Bruna was the family’s first soapmaker. Today over a century later, Serge Bruna, a Master Soapmaker of Marseille, and his wife Laurence are carrying on the family soapmaking tradition. They manufacture a wide range of Marseille Soap products that are enjoyed by their many customers across the globe.
Savonnerie de la Licorne soaps are made from 100% pure vegetable oils. The production process involves passing raw soap through granite rollers to give it a super-fine gentleness. Next, a mixer is used to add the special ingredients needed for fragrances and special properties, such as honey, essential oils, lavender, rose and orange blossom. Lastly, the scented, colored soap gets stamped and moulded into a wide range of shapes – often according to a customer’s special request.
Come for a free guided tour of our workshop located at Cours Julien, a short walk from the Vieux-Port and la Canebière. Discover our four city center shops and our unique Marseille Soap museum. A visit to the museum includes the chance to make your very own customized soap. Our entire product range is available for purchase from our online store.
