GOOD TO KNOW
Handcrafted and authentic Marseille soap: what does it mean?
As the soap is authentic and handmade, don't be surprised by the following:
The weight of the soap
Your 300 grams cube only weighs 270g? Don't panic. The weight of Marseille soap is taken from freshly made soap and then constantly fluctuates while it dries.
Marseille soap is subject to desiccation, meaning it constantly dries out. And as it dries over time, the water evaporates, and the weight of the soap decreases. Depending on the degree of drying, the soap can weigh from 5% up to 25% less than its initial weight (220g for a 300g soap).
Yet you don't lose anything! The more each soap dries, the better and the more cost effective it becomes.
The degree of drying
The soap is made by the Le Sérail soap factory. Its degree of drying varies according to the date of production. The more recent the production date, the "wetter" the soap.
Do your soaps seem too soft for your taste? Then you may want to leave it to dry in the open air. The weather, particularly the humidity level, has an impact on both the manufacturing and drying process.
A white film is likely to appear on quality unrefined soaps, again depending on the moisture content. And don't worry, this is not mould.
It is the result of the manufacturing process, and in particular the washing of the soap paste in salt water. If it bothers you visually, just run the soap under water and rub it off. But don't worry, this white film guarantees the high quality of the non refined soaps.
The colour of Marseille soap
The colour of soap can vary. Indeed, depending on the oils used and on the production process of each batch, therefore the colour of the finished product fluctuates.
Moreover, as it dries, Marseille soap lightens or takes on a slightly different hue. Olive Marseille soap becomes lighter. These colours and their variations are natural and specific to artisanal and non-refined soaps. So don't be surprised!
