New from Pré de Provence

Created using the finest natural ingredients and aromatherapy concepts, Pré de Provence products are meticulously made in Provence, France — many as they have been for centuries — from the purest vegetable oils, rich shea butter and other natural ingredients.

We now offer nine scents of Pré de Provence’s shea butter enriched soap, as well as two gift packs. Each of their soaps contains pure, natural ingredients and is uniquely quad milled. Quad milling is a special process that refines the soap four times, creating a super luxurious feel on skin. Experience a smooth, creamy lather that keeps skin moisturized with the richness of shea butter.

Invented in 1900, the Bougies la Francaise perforated candles or “bougies trouées” were the first candles with internal perforations. As the candle burns, the wax fills the perforations to burn later instead of running down the outside. The result is a candle that burns longer with less wax.

Compagnie de Provence Olive & Lavender Liquid Soap from I Dream of France

Compagnie de Provence Olive & Lavender Liquid Soap from I Dream of France

Do you subscribe to Gwyneth Paltrow’s newsletter Goop? This week she reviewed one of the French soaps we carry from Compagnie de Provence! Here is an excerpt:

I first discovered this natural, beautifully packaged liquid soap in France…The French take their products seriously and not just any soap gets the denomination as it must be made up mostly of natural oils in order to be truly Marseillaise.

 We carry Compagnie de Provence liquid soap in Verveine (Verbena) and Olive-Lavender, as well as hand cream, bar soap, duckie soap for babies, and lavender linen water. Their products are made with the traditional Marseillaise method and contain essential oils and glycerine.
