South of France Frequently Asked Questions

What does "French Milled" mean?
French Milled soap is milled (refined) three times, which concentrates the natural vegetable oils. This process results in a long-lasting bar that disintegrates far more slowly than other soaps. Triple French Milled bars are characteristically heavier, denser, wear away more slowly and produce richer, thicker foam than regular bar soaps. Sometimes "French Milled" is referred to as "hard milled". This is the traditional soap-making method which has been practiced in Southern France for centuries.

What is Vegetable Glycerin and why do I want it in my soap?
Vegetable Glycerin is a by-product of the soap-making process. It's a natural humectant, which means it attracts moisture from the environment to its surface. Glycerin's most common function in beauty products is to prevent soaps, creams and makeup from over-drying. South of France soaps are made with only the most pure vegetable ingredients: olive, palm and coconut oil. Because Vegetable Glycerin is a valuable commodity to the health and beauty industry as an additive in lotions and cosmetics, many soap manufacturers sell the glycerin that results from their soap-making process to other companies. South of France retains this important ingredient and adds it back into the soap. The resulting bars are excellent for dry skin, as the Vegetable Glycerin content helps hold moisture in the outer layers of the skin.

What are Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate and Sodium Tallowate?
Sodium Laureth Sulfate and its close relative, Sodium Laurel Sulfate (SLSs) are inexpensive synthetic foaming agents and degreasers, widely used in commercial soap production. In industrial application, SLSs are mainly used as engine degreasers, floor cleaners and car wash soaps. SLSs are commonly used in clinical trials to intentionally irritate the skin, so that researchers can measure the rate at which skin heals. SLSs are linked to eye irritation, rashes on the skin and scalp, and other allergic reactions. South of France soaps do not contain Sodium Laureth Sulfate or Sodium Laurel Sulfate. SoF soaps produce rich, dense foam naturally and are gentle to the skin.

Sodium Tallowate (or Tallow) is animal fat, and is found in many commercial soap products. It is inexpensive, plentiful and has been known to clog pores. South of France takes pride in the fact that their products never contain any animal by-products and are cruelty-free (never tested on animals).

What is Shea Butter?
Shea Butter is derived from the nut of the Karite Tree, which is native to the dry savannah belt of West Africa, from Senegal in the west to Sudan in the east, and onto the foothills of the Ethiopian highlands. Shea Butter is a natural moisturizer, possessing a high concentration of Vitamin E. It nourishes, rejuvenates, hydrates, conditions the skin and promotes cellular growth. Although the Shea Nut is essentially a tree nut, it does not belong to the list of commonly allergenic tree nuts; there are no reports of allergic reactions to Shea Nuts or products containing Shea Butter. Additionally Shea Butter has been proven useful in relieving dry skin and dermatitis.

Are South of France soaps made in France?
South of France Natural Body Care was created by a French-American transplant who had become frustrated by the lack of quality body care products on the American market in the early 1990s. His vision was to bring artesian soap-making practices to America, to prove that it is possible to make high-quality, fragrant, natural soaps affordably. Nearly 20 years later, South of France has established itself as an innovator and leader in the American body care industry. Althought the techniques used to create South of France body care products originated in the South of France, due to current economic pressures, all South of France products are now produced domestically, ensuring that South of France products are always available at a value.

Are South of France soaps hypo-allergenic?
South of France soaps are free from the following harsh chemical ingredients that are commonly used in the body care industry:

  • Sodium Laureth Sulfate/Sodium Laurel Sulfate
  • Tetrasodium EDTA
  • Parabens
  • Phthalates
  • Animal By-Products
  • Synthetic Colorants
  • Synthetic Fragrances

South of France cannot make the claim that our products are hypo-allergenic because they do use essential oils and blends of fragrance to impart scent to our products; often the ingredients used for fragrance can trigger specific allergic reactions. Typically, an individual who is sensitive to fragrance can work with his or her dermatologist or allergen specialist to isolate and identify which fragrance(s) trigger their specific reaction and thereby avoid using products with that particular fragrance. Because South of France products do not contain harsh chemical ingredients, often individuals who have sensitive skin or an allergy to one of the afore-listed harsh chemcial ingredients, find that South of France products provide relief from their allergies/sensitivities while other, synthetic products fail to do so.

What is the shelf-life for South of France soaps?
South of France soaps have a shelf life of at least 4 years, if not longer; however, the fragrances contained in their products will begin to fade after approximately two years. This is due to the fact that South of France products do not use harsh chemical preservatives, a decision that was made with your safety in mind. So, while your bar of Lavender soap (for example) may begin to lose its fragrance after two years, the bar itself will remain perfectly good & useable for up to four years.

    What a great bar of moisturizing soap with a heavenly scent. It really gives you a clean feeling. I've been using it as my face soap then use my moisturizer after washing my face and my skin is super soft. Don't forget you will need a complexion brush works great as an exfoliator.

    I recently purchased several French Milled Vegetable Bar Soaps in a variety of scents. These soaps invigorates the skin gently and each bar seems to last forever. The price was right and the items were received within a short period of time. I am very satisfied with this company and the good manner it treats its customers. Wllfred.

    Fragrance is disappointing and not too appealing. It does not smell at all like gardenia and is also very penetrating, so that it lingers in the bathroom for a while. The soap itself is truly excellent, same as always. It makes wonderful lather and is gentle on the skin.

    I won't describe the scent (scents are to subjective) except to say that I like most of them and love a couple. The soap washes off easily and lathers up nicely. I use several South of France soaps and all fill the room with the scent of the bar and leave a light scent of it on your skin.

    I had never tried French milled soap until a few weeks ago. All I can say is Awesome! My skin feels so clean & hydrated. When toweling off, it feels like my skin has been waxed like when you wash & wax your car. Water just beads right off yet there is no feeling of residue. Plus side is that this soap lasts a long time. The lather is so creamy. I will continue to buy this soap from LV from now on.

    We like the big bars to shower with and we have been using an 8.8 oz. bar from a local grocer at a much higher cost. I bought a variety of different odors and am enjoying them all. Also, this bar last longer than the 8.8 oz. we were using. Have not used the Gardenia yet, but looking forward to it.

    My other favorite bar soap from South of France. (the only bar soap I will buy) I love the soft scent of gardenia, and as with all the SoF soaps, I can be sure they will last a long time.
