Created in 2012 by Sidonie Champagne (dept 85, in Benet), mother of two children, her husband joined the adventure in 2016.
Its soaps are handcrafted by cold saponification under the Nature & Progress label. The raw materials are sourced as much as possible from local farms.
"Soap is a mixture of oils, water and sodium hydroxide. So I create soaps in which I leave the glycerin. It forms naturally and helps hydrate the skin. That's 8 to 10% of soaps, while industrial soaps only contain 1 to 2%. Indeed, they remove it to resell it as a moisturizer. "
The Sidonie Champagne product range was built on this advantage. They are between 5 and 7% superfat depending on the formulas, that is to say that some of the oils are not saponified so that the soap hydrates more.
The logo of the soap factory represents Capucine, their daughter, and is intended in their image, a traditional medallion representing the artisanal manufacturing method.
Since then, the product range has grown and Sidonie manufactures liquid soaps, creams, balms and deodorants.
