Alexandra and Sonia reveal remarkable, but also controversial, personalities that have rattled conventions with their soaps. Each piece comes with a story unwrapping what these “naughty girls” stood for.
An exclusive Daughters of Witches x VFMG soap with the portrait of Marie Skłodowska-Curie.
Skłodowska-Curie was a Polish and naturalized-French physicist and chemist who became the first woman to win a Nobel Prize in Physics and the first person to claim Nobel honors twice.
The box of the soap includes a handmade organic Cold Process Soap and a biographical text.
100g natural gentle cleansing soap. Cold processed and cured for 35 days, our soap preserves all the beneficial properties of its natural ingredients and ensures optimal skin protection. It is enriched with Pink clay, Shea butter, Argan oil and Jojoba and subtly perfumed with Geranium, Palmarosa and Rosemary essential oils.
The soap comes in a soft green over beige or rosy beige over grey.
The cold-process soaps by VFMG are handmade in France from 100% natural ingredients.
Cold-process soap making is an ancient know-how, a delicate practise which requires a handful of skilfully fine-tuned ingredients and a bundle of time- four weeks of ‘drying’ as opposed to a couple of hours for industrial soaps.
Saponification ensues from combining vegetable oils with lye and water, without any heating process known to distort ingredients.
Natural colours and essential oils can thus be blended in, preserving all their beneficial properties. We chose to add-on some oils for optimal skin protection, which also provides a ‘gentle’ touch to our soaps.
This cold-process production is not only soft to the skin, it is also environmentally friendly (with high-quality biodegradable ingredients, and energy-saving production methods). VFMG carefully selected their soap-maker for his expertise and high-standard, from sourcing to production.
