Once upon a time in 1990, two friends from Marseille, passionate about decoration and design decide to revisit an old tradition: the iconic cube of Marseille soap. Aware of its place in the Provencal cultural heritage, they decided to reinterpret it in a modern and contemporary way.
The soap, which makes the fame and pride in its city since the seventeenth century, is a natural product made exclusively from vegetable oils, without any coloring or artificial additives. It is this exceptional purity which gives its hypoallergenic, antiseptic and antibacterial virtues. It is on this icon they build their business by focusing on its values of authenticity, simplicity, efficiency and quality.
In 1999, Compagnie de Provence innovates by offering a unique liquid version of the Marseille soap. Made the traditional way in a cauldron from vegetable oils such as its solid ancestor, it is presented in a glass bottle with a pumpwith marked and clean graphic codes. This invention gives the brand an international scale and strengthens its image of modernity that it continues to cultivate ever since.
In 2013, the company associates itself with an Italian dermatological group to accelerate its development and meet the increasingly challenging demands of consumers in terms of quality, innovation and cosmetic quality.
In 2016, Compagnie de Provence celebrates 25 years with its Limited Edition Designer developed with the Marseillais Stephan Muntaner.
Compagnie de Provence wanted to keep a human scale to remain closer to the expectations of its customers, however, products are developed overwhelmingly in France and in its various laboratories of the Mediterranean basin and ensure him a quality copy product, and research at the cutting edge of technology.
This innovative spirit, dear to its origins, Compagnie de Provence, each puts in service of his creations, developing high quality natural product lines, ethical, aesthetic and sensory who take care of their consumers and their houses.
