More than twenty years ago, Provence Santé began selling its products at village “farmer’s markets” throughout Provence. Since then, the company has grown into one of the leading independent, imported, soap/personal-care lines in America.
Provence Santé is owned by Stephane and Natacha Lecaille. Stephane is a master savonnier (soapmaker) who began his career handcrafting soaps with Olivier Baussan and Bernard Chevaillat at Ardecosm, a distinguished French laboratoire.
Co-owner Natacha Lecaille is a trained chemiste and esthetician who specializes in the formulation and fragrancing of soaps and bath/personal care products.
The company is involved in every step of the process: formulating, selecting raw ingredients, efficacy and safety testing, and production. All products meet the specifications of Ecocert, the French list of approved ingredients
Their offices are located in a picturesque 300 year-old former abbey in the medieval village of Lussan in southern France.
