At L’Occitane, we've been making solid and liquid soaps since 1980, when Olivier Baussan purchased the first soap making materials. Ever since the creation of L'Occitane, all our soaps have been made exclusively from plant oils using a hot process method, as this is the only method that guarantees a complete saponification reaction.
Soap gets rid of bacteria and virus's, while also cleansing the skin. They are made up of a fatty substance
mixed with an alkaline agent. The physical form of the soap (solid, liquid or paste) depends on the fats/oils and alkaline agents used to create it.
