The Saponificio Varesino Story

During World War II basic items such as soap were difficult to find, so Bardelli Dante mastered a way to make soaps for his brothers in arms on the front lines in Italy using the natural ingredients available to him.

Upon his return from service he decided to study the chemical principles that govern saponification and, together with his wife, founded Saponificio Varesino and began to produce soaps using the traditional ways of artisan soapmakers. These methods are still used by the company today to produce some of the world's finest bar and shaving soaps.
