Come and discover my traditional soap factory “Badiane” in Clomot, in the Auxois. You will be able to visit my workplace, in a stunning 17th century farmhouse.

This is where I practice the ancient art of cold saponification. Each bar of soap is entirely hand-made from start to finish and is unique. I have created complex and precise recipes to get high quality, rich soaps that respect your skin and the environment.

Firstly, you will explore the manufacturing workshop and the drying room. Then I will reveal all of my secrets to you and transform vegetable oils into a creamy soap paste before your eyes.
