For more than a century, L’Amande has been synonymous with quality in the great tradition of Mediterranean soap making. In keeping with its distinguished heritage, today L’Amande soaps are still produced in cauldrons, using the traditional, so-called “Marseillais” method in which the oils and raw materials are simmered for six days and six nights.
The solid soaps which made L’Amande famous in France at the end of the 1800’s, have gradually been joined by genuine liquid soaps, creams, bath foams, shampoos, toothpastes, lip sticks, eau de parfums and many other products, while still maintaining the high quality which has always distinguished L’Amande.
This story, our story, time-honoured and rooted in the strip of land along the Mediterranean Sea between Genoa and Marseille, has become part of us and our products.
For this reason, we use only the best oils, fragrances and essences from our own terrain, with specific olfactive and phytocosmetic qualities: olive oil – Mediterranean gold – and sweet almonds oil, the inspiration for our brand name; Spanish Broom, Strawberry tree, Mulberry, typical plants of the Mediterranean scrub (maquis); Honeysuckle and Hawthorn which perfume country lanes and cover the distinctive Ligurian dry walls; Prickly Pears, which have 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 rocky cliffs.
