Mignonne features several lines of high quality, triple milled soaps that are luxurious and long lasting.
Soap milling is the process of shredding apart prepared soap and then putting it back together using high pressure and rollers. When this process is done 3 times, you get "triple milled" soap. By milling, the fragrance, color and ingredients are more evenly distributed throughout the bar. It also improves the texture of the soap, resulting in a harder bar and longer lasting soap.
These processes, combined with high quality ingredients, are used to create the lines of soap Mignonne offers.
To underscore the benefit of triple milling ... and why customers love our soaps ... here are 'before and after' photos of a bar of L'epi de Provence Fig Soap. L'epi de Provence soaps are made with 100% shea butter. This high quality soap lasts down to the very last sliver. If we had 'smell-o-blog', you would also know that the delicious Fig fragrance is in evidence down to the very last drop. This remaining sliver began as one round bar of L'Epi de Provence Fig soap, pictured above.
This soap sliver has been used daily from August, 2008. Great soap lathers as well, and smells as great, from the start to the long-lasting finish!
This is the level of quality product that we seek out and personally test, before offering at Mignonne. We don't want mushy bars disintegrating in our soap bowls at home, or cracking after a few uses. And we know that neither do you. This is why we test before we sell, so that we are confident that our customers will love our products as much as we do.
You can find the following French bar soaps in our store:
~ L'epi de Provence, with 100% shea butter, is our most popular soap. We rotate fragrances with the seasons.
~ Doux, handcrafted in small batches using shea butter, olive and palm oils with natural Provencal fragrances.
~ Savon de Marseille, one of the oldest traditional soaps from France, having been made for over 1,000 years. Since 1688, French law has required that only soaps produced using ancient methods can bear the name "Savon de Marseille". These soaps take two weeks to make. We feature square blocks of fragrant soap with crushed local flowers (lavender blossoms, rose, verbena) and natural oils incorporated into the soap.
All of our soaps can be purchased in the store or give us a call ... we can take care of your order and ship to the destination you choose!
