Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions. If you don't find the question/answer you're looking for, just contact us and we'll be very happy to help you.
Do your soaps contain Parabens or SLS (Sodium Laureth Sulphate)?
No. Our products are free from Parabens. SLS (Sodium Laureth Sulphate) is used as a surfactant (foaming agent). None of our products contain SLS.
Also, the palm oil used in some of our soaps is from a sustainable source.
Are your products tested on animals?
Absolutely Not. Our soaps are not tested on animals and there are no animal based ingredients in our soaps, with the exception of Honey and Donkey milk soaps.
Where are your products made?
Our products are made by local artisans using traditional methods in the Provence region of France, with the exception of Aleppo soap, which is made in Syria.
Are your soaps triple-milled?
Yes. Our soaps are triple-milled to ensure a consistency of colour, texture and scent, right through to the centre of the soap.
How come your soaps are coloured if they're natural?
Our soaps only contain natural food grade colourings and scents, with the exception of Savon de Marseille cubes and Aleppo soaps which contain no colourings or scents.
Do your soaps contain preservatives?
Tetra-sodium EDTA is a preservative and a chelating ingredient used to stabilise the colour and the fragrance of the soap. Tetra-sodium EDTA is an amino acid compound, commonly used as a food ingredient. This preservative is not used in the Marseille cubes or in the Aleppo soaps, as they have no colour or scents to stabilise.
Where are the Le Petit Marseillais liquid soap refills?
We had to discontinue the refills as far too many were bursting/breaking in transit to our customers. If Le Petit Marseillais introduce a more substantial packaging, obviously we will restock them. We apologise if this causes any inconvenience.
Why have you discontinued the deodorant sprays?
We have had a few packages returned to us because they contained a deodorant spray - apparently they are on the dangerous list for transit.
