Claus Porto soaps are celebrated around the world and it clear why: beautiful packaging. Each bar starts with top quality 100% vegetable soap base and pure, skin softening shea butter, which makes for a rich, creamy bathing experience. Next, the finest fragrances from the south of France are mixed in so that the scents last until the very end of the bar. All of these ingredients are then milled seven times in the traditional European way for a hard, dense soap that has an ultra luxurious and creamy lather. It will not crack or split either! 100% Vegetable base is easily biodegradable. The alluring trademark graphics are authentic and original and are chosen from the archives of CLAUS PORTO / ACH BRITO. If you notice sight discrepancies in soap shape or size, or a partial obliteration of the stamp in certain places, this is your absolute assurance that each and every soap is formed, pressed, and molded by hand; keeping traditions alive as well as employing members of the same families for generations. They wouldn't dream of making soap any other way.
