Organic is the ‘in’ thing these days. And since I’d like to be using as many organic products in my life as I can, I agreed to review Organic Le Savonnier Marseillais Soap – an all natural soap, in the eucalyptus scent.

Organic Le Savonnier Marseillais Soap comes in several scents as well as there being a 100% Natural All-Purpose Olive Oil Soap that is unscented. Organic Le Savonnier Marseillais Soap is safe for pets and kids. All the varieties of Organic Le Savonnier Marseillais 5

Look at all the uses this all natural soap has:

  • Home – inside and outside – it cleans and adds shine to absolutely everything, without polluting.
  • Laundry – ideal for washing and perfuming linen. There’s no need for fabric softener.
  • Garden – the soap is a natural insecticide against aphids and various garden insects.
  • Animals – as a natural shampoo for washing domestic pets and livestock
  • Cars and motorcycles – cleaning and polishing vehicles inside and out
  • Artistic painting or acrylic painting – cleans tools such as brushes and rollers
    Boats and trailers – clean up without polluting the environment or aquatic life

I actually tried the product in several instances. My first attempt was washing my dishes. I loved the strong eucalyptus scent; however I didn’t like that there weren’t a lot of soapsuds. That being said, I have no idea if this holds true for all – all natural soaps, as this is the very first all natural soap I’ve ever used. I was pleased at how well it took grease off the dishes, pots, and pans. I really didn’t expect it to do such a great job – especially since there weren’t any suds (yeah, I guess you could say suds trigger effectiveness when obviously – it’s psychological). The one thing I wouldn’t be comfortable doing is soaking my dishes, especially plastics in the soap. I would be afraid the scent would penetrate the plastic.

I also used the soap in my kitchen hand soap dispenser. I found it necessary to water the soap down once I got it in the dispenser, as it’s very thick. It’s actually hard to pour from the bottle because it’s so thick (I did not receive a pump as shown on the website and in the picture above). After fighting with trying to get the soap out of the bottle on a few occasions – I decided to see if using a straw inserted into the bottle would help it come out better. That didn’t work well for me. So I then decided to cut an ‘X’ with a utility knife at the base of the neck on the bottle. Doing that helped a lot.

My next test with this all natural soap was cleaning my hands of grease.  I buy meats in bulk and then repackage them into meal-size portions. I had burger and a pork loin to repackage this time around. I really wanted to see if the soap would get the grease off my hands from these raw meats. I went about my business, and because I hate the feeling of any foreign substance on my hands – especially slimy foreign substances like grease, I wash my hands often when doing the task. Amazingly, the soap worked very well without having to use a lot of it. I actually used what I had put in the soap dispenser – which was watered down at that.  I also used a rag with the soap to clean up the mess I made from packaging the meats – I was pleased with how the counter top easily cleaned.

This all natural soap also was used to wipe up a mess on one of the bedroom’s floor – accidentally. I didn’t do this as I vowed long ago to wash my flooring with nothing but vinegar and water.  That said, when I did go back in to clean that floor with the steam cleaner – I was amazed that the area that had been cleaned with the soap didn’t leave watermarks where I had steamed it. This is a positive as the reason I’ve resorted to water and vinegar on my floors is for the mere fact that other products would leave water marks as the floor dried and I found they left a film on the floors.  Neither makes me happy.

I do love the fact that the soap is safe for pets and kids.  We used a solution of this all natural soap with water to clean the litter box area.  With as many pets as I have – they tend to not care where they walk and when.  So if there is an area that I’ve recently washed, as we did in the litter box area, I know that I don’t have to worry about toxic chemicals getting into their paw pads.  The cleaner also filled the air with the eucalyptus scent which made the room smell so nice – very nice touch after messing with nasty litter boxes.

  1. I LOVE Le Savonnier Marseillais products – they all smell great, are effective and fell great. Just wish there was a bigger variety at my local drug store. But now that I know I can buy from their site online, not such a big problem any more.

  2. Wow! I didn’t either! Great review! Going to look for my closest retailer!

  3. I didn’t know there is such a thing as organic soap.

  4. I am trying to go with more natural items. This sounds wonderful.

  5. I love the multi purpose uses of this soap. We are trying to eliminate chemicals from our environment and this sounds like a very good product to use.

  6. I love using organic soaps. I have never heard of this one, I will have to give it a try. Thanks for the review.

  7. I’m making the transition to greener products, and am always on the lookout for new products. I like that this also comes in an unscented option!

  8. I also have been trying a lot of new organic products. Nice to have a review before I buy, Alos love eucalyptus scent.

  9. I don’t think I know this product. But I have been trying to use greener products a little at a time so that it wouldn’t be such a jolt to all of us. I am going to have to give this a try. Thanks for the review

  10. I’ve never heard of this brand, but having a soap fetish and hearing your testimony that it works well and is safe around animals, I may have to give it a try. Not sure what eucalyptus smells like but it can’t be too bad. I have used bleach to clean my cats’ litter boxes in the past and I HATE the smell of bleach. It actually makes me nauseated. This soap sounds like a better solution.

    • Colleen – if you have a craft store near you or even a florist – ask where eucalyptus is kept. That will give you a good idea if you like the smell of it or not and you can count on this product being a bit stronger – scent-wise. I happen to love the smell – so I’m not bothered by it. If you do try the product – come back and let me know your thoughts – I’d love to hear them 🙂
