Founded in Marseille in 1894, the Savonnerie du Midi is one of the last historic soap factories in Marseille to perpetuate the recipe and know-how of traditional Marseille soap. La Savonnerie du Midi is a founding member of the Union of Marseille Soap Professionals. This century-old soap factory has received the Enterprise du Patrimoine Vivant label. This prize, created in 2005 and awarded by the Ministry of the Economy and Finance, distinguishes French companies which perpetuate the traditional know-how of excellence. La Corvette offer a wide range of product from this historic tradition ,adapted for contemporary needs and suitable for all the family , while respecting both the environment and traditional French expertise . Many of these authentic products-designed either for body care or domestic use-bear the ECOCERT label . La Corvette is rightly proud of its Marseille origins! the term La Corvette originally referred to the small three-masters that set sail from the port of Marseille on discovery missions. In the 19th century they were used to supply Marseille soap factories with raw materials. And the voyage continues to this day ,with traditional products designed to meet modern needs. The last four remaining soap factories in the bouches-du-rhone region of France (including the Savonnerie du Midi) decided to join forces in 2011 by setting up the union of Marseille Soap Professional (UPSM) , with the aim of protecting real Marseille soap. They signed a Quality Charter that guarantees the composition of genuine Marseille soap as well as the process used to manufacture it and its geographical origin .La Corvette product are fully compliant with the requirements set out in this charter and bear the registered logo.
