Our innovation: preserving the glycerin naturally present in the heart of the soap. We are pleased to present to you an exceptional soap: Marseille soap by Rampal Latour.

Attentive to the needs of our contemporaries, it is our duty as soapmakers to know how to take care of sensitive skin.

Marseille soap is the ideal partner for hand and body hygiene. However, its great effectiveness – which has earned it the reputation of a stripping product – can tend to dry out sensitive skin.
This is why we decided to keep in our Marseille soaps the right dose of natural glycerin from the vegetable oils used in soap making.

This ambition met a major challenge: during the traditional manufacturing process of Marseille soap, glycerin was traditionally extracted to be resold.

Thanks to careful observation of the traditional process, and with the help of modern analysis methods, the Rampal Latour soap factory has achieved the unthinkable: preserving the glycerin naturally constituted by the manufacturing process while ensuring the traditional washing of the paste. soap !

Added to the existing virtues of Marseille soap are the protective and moisturizing properties of glycerin, without it being added as an additive to the soap. This natural glycerin, known for its humectant properties, also provides a particularly pleasant creamy foam with Marseille soap. With more glycerin than in most moisturizing creams, Rampal Latour Marseille soap has become a cosmetic care product in its own right, for all skin types, even sensitive skin.
The benefits of glycerin for the skin
Many cosmetic and pharmaceutical products contain glycerin, precisely dosed in products as varied as soap, shaving foam and even care creams. Indeed, glycerin is a humectant which has the property of retaining several times its weight in water, which makes it an essential hydrating active ingredient. Its effect depends on the quantity contained in the product: an increase in the glycerin content will improve its moisturizing and protective effect (Gloor 1997).

Several studies and publications have demonstrated the numerous benefits of glycerin on the skin:
Glycerin hydrates the stratum corneum (stratum corneum), promoting skin elasticity (Froebe 1990, Fluhr 2003).
Glycerin repairs the skin barrier: by promoting the synthesis of lipids in the epidermis, it plays an important role in the skin's repair processes (Fluhr 1999-2008, Bretenritz 2007).
Glycerin softens the skin (Batt 1986, Fluhr 2008).
Glycerin protects the skin from external aggressions such as cold, atmospheric dryness, pollution, UV rays (Peak 1980, Froebe 1990, Short 2007).
Glycerin regulates the desquamation of the skin and thus preserves the superficial layers of the epidermis (Breternitz 2007, Fluhr 2008).
Glycerin has anti-microbial (Saegeman 2007) and virucidal (Burns 1994, Cameron 2000) effects.
The glycerin found in cosmetic products is often synthetic, derived from petroleum derivatives. Its ecological impact is therefore not negligible. Here is one more reason to favor products containing natural glycerin of plant origin, as is the case with Rampal Latour Marseille soap.
