ITEM: The luscious scents of this soap are made with a vegetable base and developed in the sun of a beautiful Florentine orchard. The Peach + Melon Soap is a toning formula with a deliciously sweet fragrance. This soap is still prepared in the traditional Italian manner: by cauldron baking. Though this process is more expensive and takes much longer (up to four days!), there is no substitute for making soaps of such a luxurious caliber. Taking the time and energy to create these soaps by hand ensures a superior product with high-quality raw materials. The production of these bars of soap is strictly carried out with full respect for the environment. The soaps are natural and fully biodegradable, as well.
