Fer A Cheval

FAC Banner 1

With more than 160 years of existence, Fer à Cheval Savonnerie perpetuates the method of making and saponifying Marseille soap in a cauldron according to the true “Marseillaise” method. It was in the 19th century, in the city of Marseille, that hundreds of small factories made soap, the flagship product of Marseille.

In the 19th century in Marseille, hundreds of little manufacturers produced soap, Marseille’s iconic product. For one of them, it was the beginning of a special adventure…

In 1856, on chemin de Saint-Marthe, a candle manufacturer quickly and exclusively became a factory dedicated to producing Marseille Soap… After an acquisition in 1895, the factory manufactured Marseille soap on behalf of several brands including Le Chat, and in 1953 it assumed charge of perpetuating a historic brand that since 2003 remains the factory’s only representative: Fer à Cheval.

Here, we manufacture and select the ingredients to create the bases for Marseille Soap… We are at the very source of the product and pass on this know-how from generation to generation, so much so that we are now a Living Heritage Company and hold a Tourism Quality label for maintaining age-old expertise.

Today, we remain the oldest Marseille soap factory to perpetuate its production using an age-old recipe. We like to believe that this name will continue to bring us good luck.
