Book « Marseille Soap » by Patrick Boulanger
This book, written in French by Patrick Boulanger, delves into the history of Marseille Soap.
Marseille soap experienced an incredible evolution over the centuries. After its obscure beginning in modest medieval workshop’s cauldrons, it became, in time, Marseille’s most powerful industry.
Marseille Soap was present in each French household for hundreds of years. However, by the end of World War II, it was replaced by washing powder and synthetic detergents.
