#PlasticFreeJuly: switch to natural soap bars
July 1, 2021

#PlasticFreeJulyAre you taking part in #PlasticFreeJuly this year? Switching to our natural solid soap bars is a great way to reduce plastic waste.

Plastic Free July is a global annual campaign which encourages people to cut down on single use plastic and help to protect the planet.

The problem is even everyday tasks, like washing our hands, our hair or our home, can use numerous plastic bottles of shower gel, liquid soap, shampoo and detergent. That adds up to a lot of plastic, especially if you’re part of a large family.

So, how can you use less plastic? One simple step is to simply replace your plastic products with solid bars of soap, like the natural soap bars we stock here at the French Soap Store.

Our natural French zero-waste soaps are free from plastic and chemicals, which makes them better for the environment and better for your skin too.

Did you know you can shampoo with a solid bar of soap? Our organic solid French shampoo soap bars are the ideal plastic-free alternative to bottled shampoo. They last for ages too. Each one is chemical-free and handmade using nourishing natural oils.

You can clean just about everything with our traditional SAVON DE MARSEILLE. This handcrafted soap block is naturally anti-bacterial and can be used to clean everything from stone floors and delicate clothes. It’s so gentle on the skin, fabrics and the environment, we just add grated soap flakes directly to the wash.

Lose your bottle and choose solid soap

So, go on, take part in #PlasticFreeJuly and treat yourself to some natural plastic-free soap.

Let’s talk about exfoliating!
April 16, 2021

Why exfoliate?

Depending on your skin type or even as we age, our skin’s natural cycle of shedding dead skin cells changes. Throughout the year, mainly due to the weather and climate, this cycle will also change, which is probably why many of you find your skin to become very lacklustre and dull during the winter months.

What is exfoliation?

Exfoliating removes the dead skin cells from the uppermost layer of the skin, not a nice thought I know, bringing newer skin cells to the surface to create younger fresher looking skin. This new skin holds water better and allows moisturisers to penetrate the layers instead of just sitting on top of the epidermis. It boosts circulation and unclogs pores for a smoother, more youthful complexion. To get the best results it’s recommended to exfoliate 2 to 3 times a week depending on your skin type.

Natural-french-soapsNatural French soaps to help you achieve softer, smoother skin

At the French Soap Store we have the ultimate products to help you achieve softer, smoother skin with our wide range of gentle exfoliating soap bars.

There is nothing better than starting the day with a refreshing shower using one of our organic soaps which contain seeds, herbs and flowers for that natural scrubby sensation. Our natural French soaps are silicone and paraben free, 100% vegetal and vegan friendly (except the donkey milk soaps which contain the milk of animal origin). Being enriched with organic Shea butter, these soaps leave your skin feeling soft and moisturised.

Our excellent range of soaps includes the Verbena exfoliating organic donkey milk soap for sensitive skin, a wide range of French market soaps and Écolier oval soap bars (otherwise know as soap on rope). Take a look at our best of both soaps, the orange and macadamia tandem soap. This all-natural soap has a dual-sided design; one exfoliating, one smooth. The rough side is dotted with grainy bits to exfoliate dead, flaky skin and the smooth side generates an ultra-creamy foam that softly moisturises. Bursting with natural essential oils that nourish, pamper and leave behind an amazing fragrance, these French soap bars are the best of both worlds.

With our great range of French soaps from Provence you are bound to find one that suits you. And to get the most out of your soap try an organic hemp soap bag which is not only great for holding your soap secure whilst in the bath or shower but also helps create more lather with the added benefit of gently exfoliating your skin as you bathe.

We are here to help

For more information or help choosing your exfoliating soap bars call us on 07867 486402 or email me, Katie at and I’ll be delighted to help!
