Covid-19 Doing Our Bit
In accordance with government directive,
the Savonnerie store in Caylus is closed from March 16 2020
until further notice.
Our website remains open for your orders.
Take care of yourself and your loved ones!
This is a tumultuous time for everyone; many of us risk succumbing to coronavirus disease, so it is important that we ALL follow every guidance and regulation whilst remaining particularly vigilant and caring of our loved ones and others.
Vigilancy includes respecting hygiene measures and it is worth knowing that natural hand made soap from The Centre de Formation, Savonnerie de Caylus is equally effective as hand sanitising gels.
Unlike some well known brands that market their detergent soap as a "Beauty Cleansing Bar, 100% of our authentic, traditionally made soap are composed of 100% natural ingredients that cleanse and sanitise the skin while drenching the skin's epidermis with moisurise.
Donations and Falling Prices
We have taken the initiative to provide soaps from our Savonnerie to the municipality for the village crèche , those in most need and the polling stations for the municipal elections.
Some of our competitors have eploited the situation hiking up the prices of hydroalcoholic gels on their websites or in their stores. We've opted for the opposite approach by reducing the price of some of our solid soaps by 50% available on our website until March 31, 2020.
We also have a small stock of our sanitising hand gel, made with alcohol, organic aloe vera gel and a blend of essential oils renown for their sanitising and skin care properties. Visit our boutique but please remember, this product is limited to one per order.
Everyone's health is everyone's responsibility and with our action (and yours), we hope to help limit Covid-19 for the benefit of everyone.
