Bonne Mère, The Marseille Soap in All Its Forms

Bonne Mère! This is the affectionate name that the master soap-makers of Marseille once gave to the Notre-Dame de la Garde Basilica, protector of the city. L'OCCITANE has chosen this name to make a colorful tribute to this Provençal know-how.

Savon de Marseille soap is composed of at least 72% olive oil, a natural product with multiple properties. It cleanses the body as well as washing clothes and perfuming cupboards. It is this tradition that inspired the L'Occitane "Bonne Mère" range, dedicated to body care. To the small cakes of soaps, L'Occitane has added shower gels and liquid soaps, rich in vegetable oil, for a moment of pure bliss.

This year, the range is enriched with a lovely set of scented shower gels. Lemon, Peach, Rosemary, Olive and Honey, the new Bonne Mère Shower Gels awaken sweet cravings for Provence. Under the shower, a light foam and subtle scent overwhelms us for a moment of pure happiness. Thanks to a unique formula prepared with quality ingredients, its fluid texture forms a light and delicately scented foam. As for the packaging, the new Bonne Mère shower gels present a fun design with cube-shaped bottles that are sure to transport you back to childhood.
