Best Hand Soap...Ever

I'm a bit of a hand soap snob. I didn't use to be. I would be fine with pretty much anything except bars of soap by the sink. Can't do it.

The snobbery began when G and I went to Paris in 2004. We stayed with his cousin who had the most amazing soap in her kitchen. Savon de Marseille Extra Pur Orange. I had to have it immediately and I brought 2 bottles and a refill home with me. (Plus lots of their cute little crock pot yogurt containers. But that is another story)

Now I'm out of soap. Luckily for me I don't have to cross the big pond to get it. I found an online retailer. Here is what they have to say about this soap.

French law requires that any soap called "Marseille" be made from a minimum of 72% vegetable oil. This premium Marseille liquid soap from La Compagnie de Provence lasts so long, works so well, and looks so fantastic that it's going to be a new passion. The 500 ml. glass bottle has a clean, bold design that adds style anywhere.Still made in a cauldron according to longtime tradition, this legendary Marseille soap is made with vegetable oils and naturally glycerined. Biodegradable, it's guaranteed free of artificial coloring and animal fats.
