ancient Gavarry soap works, founded in the second half of the 18th Century
in the town of La Ciotat, took the brand name L’Amande over
and other minor brands of one of the oldest soap works of Marseille,
the Huilerie & Savonnerie de L’Amande, of F.I.S.A.M.
(Fabbricazione Italiana della Savonnerie Amande di Marsiglia)
of Vallecrosia, in the province of Imperia.
The company was founded 30 years previously by Huilerie
& Savonnerie de L’Amande in unison with the Società
Anonima Federico Acquarone from Imperia (specialized in import/export of cereals and colonials) for the
production and marketing of the traditional products from the
"Huilerie & Savonnerie de L'Amande" of Marseilles
in Italy and the colonies. the Savonnerie de L'Amande itself was
taken over meaning not only the passage of the brand names to
Gavarry, but also the original recipes of all the products. At
the same time in 1951 in Marseille, the Huilerie & Savonnerie
of L’Amande ceases his activity.
Gavarry of Albisola, with the passing of the years saw the addition
of complete product lines for hair care, pre and after shave,
toning creams, sun creams, toothpastes, and even bubble baths
and talcum powders.
Today Gavarry is a leader among soap producers, specialised both
in private label production, and the development of its own brand
names for the herbalist, pharmacist and perfumery.
