How it all began …
The concept of La Lavande began in the early 1980s out of our family’s desire to bring the finest French soaps to the United States. While my husband was teaching music in France we were inspired by the variety and quality of scented soaps available. Because of my family’s sensitive skin, we were impressed by the mildness of the soap as well as its long-lasting quality. In 1986 inspiration became reality as we began to manufacture and distribute soaps from Provence.
Today we are honored to be one of earliest family businesses importing French soaps to the U.S. and other markets and we remain as hands-on with our business as when we first began. We produce pure vegetable hard milled soaps in keeping with the time-honored tradition of French soap making.
It was our concept in the beginning, as it is still is, to produce the finest quality French soaps while keeping our packaging simple and using recyclable materials to minimize waste and landfill. To this day we do our utmost to keep our footprint small.
