SKU: S1198

$14

Our premium bath soaps are 100% vegetable soaps produced with no palm oil. They are crafted using the Marseilles method of artisanal soap production which ensures a creamy lather that nourishes the skin and provides deep moisture.

They are formulated with unique ingredients that represent the varied environments and landscapes found throughout Italy. Each round soap is individually wrapped and packaged in an elegant gift box embossed in metallic foil with the unique symbology of the Saponificio Varesino brand and collection to which it belongs.

In an extremely small and hardly accessible zone in the Italian Alps we found a microclimate similar to the Arctic tundra of Lapland, Siberia and Greenland. From the lichens growing here, we extracted the active ingredients that makes this collection perfect for sensitive skin as they offer a soothing and healing action with freshness and vitality.

For the fragrance, we used Agar Wood - a quintessential Oud scent - to convey a feeling of open spaces, freshness and a woody perception of shrubs.

Part of the Tundra Artica Collection.

Product size: 5.3 oz (150gr)

The cauldron production process, or Marseilles method, used for our soap represents the artisan tradition by which man has created soap for centuries. It is the skill, experience and eyes of the maker and not the management of machines or mechanical processes that brings the soap to life.

In a first phase called saponification, the fats – mainly consisting of glycerides and fatty acids – are converted into sodium salt. This operation must be carried out so that the resulting product is of good quality and suitable to be subjected to further steps of processing. From this first phase, it is therefore necessary to obtain a soap mass generally containing 30% water, with the least possible amount of alkali and electrolytes, as well as glycerol whose recovery is an economic factor of this process.

That mass is then further cooked, washed and liquified before being poured into soap molds and left to cure until the bars are hand-cut in our workshop.

Just as in the tradition then, we still produce soap with this ancient and natural method, which ensures a final product of top quality with excellent cleaning power but also serves as a very gentle and soothing treatment that results in softer and more elastic skin with repeated usage over time.

For the fragrance, we used Agar Wood - a quintessential Oud scent - to convey a feeling of open spaces, freshness and a woody perception of shrubs.

Amazing Scent!!

I've used several of the Saponificio Verasino soaps over the past several years and the Tundra Artica has became my absolute favorite. The soap is really great, but the scent is amazing!! The soap tends last much longer than regular bars of soap. I also love the Tundra Artica aftershave lotion as well. It's a wonderful compliment to the Tundra Artica soap.
