Categories : Lifestyle, published on : 1/15/24

As an independent boutique hotel, we strive to support local small businesses, and among the treasures of the 11th arrondissement, we want to introduce you to the soap boutique "Le Baigneur."

Nestled in the picturesque Rue de la Folie-Méricourt, just steps away from Hotel FABRIC, this boutique is a gem dedicated to the art of soap, offering a unique sensory experience and products of quality, environmentally friendly, crafted using traditional methods.

"Le Baigneur" reflects our values of environmental commitment, having chosen authenticity by engaging in an ethical and sustainable approach. While their products may not be certified organic, the boutique guarantees the exclusive use of ingredients sourced from organic farming or natural origins.

The raw materials, carefully selected from local, French, or European productions, demonstrate a deep commitment to quality and sustainability.

The composition of "Le Baigneur" soaps attests to a rigorous selection: vegetable oils such as rapeseed, sunflower, olive, camelina, hemp, prune, and hazelnut, along with oil macerates of calendula and St. John's wort. Essential oils and hydrosols from Provence, including lavender, black pine, rosemary, and fine lavender, add a touch of Provencal uniqueness to these creations.

The ecological commitment of "Le Baigneur" is also reflected in its packaging. Conscious of reducing environmental impact, the boutique has developed a range of packaging without plastic, favoring noble and recyclable materials, all manufactured in France. The handmade soaps are crafted using the traditional cold saponification process. This method preserves the nutritional qualities of vegetable oils and butters while minimizing energy consumption. The result is a collection of soaps ensuring a gentle cleansing, preserving the skin's hydrolipidic film and avoiding the dryness often associated with industrial soaps.

The boutique pays special attention to the curing phase of its soaps, letting them rest for a month. This period allows the excess water to evaporate and ensures complete saponification, guaranteeing high-quality soaps.

"Le Baigneur" is the perfect boutique for lovers of natural, ethical, and authentic products. Whether you are staying at Hotel FABRIC or just passing through the neighborhood, you can immerse yourself in a world where product quality aligns with environmental respect, offering a unique experience in the heart of the 11th arrondissement of Paris.

Open from Tuesday to Saturday, from 1:30 pm to 7:30 pm. Only a 3-minute walk from Hotel FABRIC.
