ABOUT PORTUGUESE SOAPS
Portuguese soap, a model of quality. Undoubtedly perceived as an authentic Portuguese product, soap has become the favourite of all tourists passing through but also of Hollywood stars since Oprah Winfrey praised its merits in her TV show. This success is deserved. It is due to the extraordinary know-how of Portuguese soap manufacturers, the quality of the ingredients used in the formulas and a heritage that has been preserved for over a century. By remaining faithful to the safe values of more than a century of tradition, these manufacturers now offer natural soaps that can't be found anywhere else. Centuries-old brands such as Claus Porto, Ach. Brito, Confiança, Castelbel ... are now joined by new brands who create innovative soaps based on old formulas: Real Saboria, that reformulates an old formula found in a vineyard in northern Portugal by making use of grape seeds, is a good example. Antiga Babeiaria do Bairro, that draws inspiration from the perfumes of Lisbon's districts and its barbers to create scented soaps for men, is another illustration of this unique creativity.
