I first discovered (Savonniere Mika) Savon de Mika when I was surfing around for soap blogs. A Japanese who now resides in France (and married to a French), Mika makes the most gorgeous soaps in the shape of Christmas logs…
At Mabel ::: Savonnière (pronounced May-ble Sah-voon-near), we endeavour to keep things earth- and community-friendly and chemical free. This means that each item is made from sustainably sourced ingredients such as vegetable oils and butters, milks, clays and muds as well as herbs and spices. All colours that you see in our soaps and products are derived from clays or herbs and spices - we don't even consider mica as a natural colorant!
We do not use the following in our products:
- Urea or formaldehyde produts
- Petroleum (paraffin wax or liquid paraffin, etc)
- Animal fats (tallow and lard)
Our products are never tested on animals, only willing human beings (namely myself and my family) and made with lots of love & dedication to the care of communities and the environment.
