For more than a century, L’Amande has been synonymous with quality in the great tradition of Mediterranean soap making.
True to its important inheritance, today L’Amande soaps are still produced in cauldrons, using the old, so-called Marseillais method in which oils and raw materials are simmered for six days and six nights.
Today, the solid soaps which made L’Amande famous in France at the end of the 1800s, have been gradually joined by real liquid soaps, creams, bath foams, shampoos, toothpastes, lip sticks, eau de parfum and many other products, in full respect of the great quality which has always distinguished L’Amande.
This history, time-honoured and rooted in a piece of land on the Mediterranean Sea between Genoa and Marseilles, has become part of us and part of our products.
This is why we exclusively use the best oils, fragrances and essences from our land with specific olfactive and phytocosmetic qualities: olive oil - Mediterranean gold – and the oil of sweet almonds, the inspiration for our brand name; Broom, Strawberry tree, Mulberry, typical plants of the maquis; Honeysuckle and Hawthorn which perfume country lanes and cover the typical dry walls; Pittosporum, which has become an integral part of the Riviera landscape. These and many other plants give our products the fragrance and emotions of a land where the sea breeze blends with the warm scents, some floral others decidedly fruity, of a Nature generous to this land in every season, where plants, aromatic herbs and flowers fill paths, hillsides and even reefs.
