Tradition and innovation in a soap making factory
In 1945 when Pierre Rampal’s heirs decided to transform their basic soap into extra-fine flakes, a new product was born. Traditional yet modern at the same time, this new form of laundry detergent entered provencal homes, then crossed the country and the generations in spite of the tough competition they had from chemical detergents.
But of course, quality was the deciding factor in the future of soap flakes.
For us, master soap makers since 1828, soap flakes are the proof of the maturity of a traditional savoir faire. Authentic, they come from pure soap guaranteed 100% vegetable oil.
The craft of production
Each stage of the production and its expert orchestration provides specific qualities:
The soap flakes, 100% vegetable oil, hypoallergenic or scented, provide beneficial qualities for the environment, skin, and laundry (even for babies or the most delicate items).
The transformation of soap into flakes, thanks to an extra-fine grinder with 6 rollers, guarantees a refined texture, capable of cleaning deeply.
A sensation of soft, clean, healthy and natural reappears as these pure soap flakes dry in open air for several days.
Turned over carefully with a fork by our craftsmen guarantees a homogenous quality. Once dried, the flakes are weighed and packaged by the same skilled and gentle hands.
Then the soap flakes are ready to be mixed in your machine or to be easily diluted for a gentle and effective washing by hand respecting the fabric, the skin and the environment.
The effectiveness of soap flakes is certified at all temperatures. See our recommandations of use.
