Raising the Bar

BDP Bar SoapsWe’re often asked, “Do people really still use bar soaps?” Our answer is an emphatic “YES!”  After liquid hand soaps, bar soaps are our most popular items.  Having said that these are no average bar soaps.  These are triple milled, long-lasting soaps that have been made in France, using some of the finest ingredients.

The Belle de Provence Bar Soaps in particular are extra mild and moisturizing.  They are 100% pure vegetable soaps, enriched with palm oil, shea butter, and almond oil.  They can be used on the body and on the face; and they have not been tested on animals.  So if you’re looking to give bar soaps a second chance, you should really start with ours!

BDP Bar Soaps ComparisonAvailable in 125g bars, with the best sellers(*) also offered in 250g: Lavender*, Lemongrass*, Honeysuckle*, Marine*, Milk*, Rose, Sandalwood, Magnolia, and Jasmine!

Vintage Revival – Inspired by House & Home Magazine

We just posted a House & Home March 2013 feature on our Press Blog entitled “Vintage Revival.”  The magazine set the scene for their make over with serveral of our products – with great success!  Inspired by this redo, we’ve selected a few other products that could have just as easily made the cut.  Explore them all below, and view our original post by clicking here.

1) Les Secrets D’Antoine 100g Soap – This vegetable based bar soap is triple milled (aka long lasting) and is scented with a mixture of moss, cedar, and tangerine zest.  Its rich colour brings a bit a drama to your space.

2) Herve Gambs Bois de Cashmere Candle – Made from all natural vegetable and mineral wax, this luxury candle is fragranced with a blend of oriental woods and vetiver.  This deep and sensual scent is perfect for bath time.

3) Belle de Provence Olive & Verbena Hand Cream – Shea butter, olive oil, and the citrusy scent of verbena – all in one tube!

4) Incense Lavender 200ml Shower Cream – A woodsy lavender scent, with base notes of mystical incense.  This shower cream (with its delicate lather, infused with olive oil) moisturizes while it cleans, leaving skin soft and smooth.

5) Les Secrets D’Antoine Liquid Hand Soap – The sleek design of this liquid soap is tempered by its old world label, making it the ideal addition to any washroom.

6) Black Jasmine 100ml Room Spray – Take a moment to really think about this fragrance: top notes of black and pink pepper, middle notes of jasmine and rose, and base notes of gaiac wood, sandalwood, and amber.  If it smells that good in your mind, imagine how incredible it is in real life!

7) Small Natural Sea Sponge – Responsibly harvested, our natural sea sponges are the environmentally friendly way to wash.  Also available in large and make-up sizes!

Gotta Get Grapefruit!

People are often surprised to find out that one of our most popular fragrances is Grapefruit.  It may not be the traditional French favourite that Lavender is, or have the same seasonal appeal as Marine, but it is definitely a hit.  With its citrusy scent and universal appeal (get it?), it is the ideal ‘pick-me-up’ fragrance.  Try it for yourself, and you’ll see that once you go Grapefruit, you never go back!

100% Pure Shea Butter

What is it?

Shea butter is a natural fat extracted from the fruit of the Shea tree, by crushing and boiling.  The Shea (or Karite) tree, produces its first fruits (which resemble large plums) when it is about 20 years old, and reaches its full production when the tree is about 45 years old. It produces nuts for up to 200 years after reaching maturity.

Properties

Most commonly known for its cosmetic properties, Shea butter is a rich moisturizer and emollient. It even works on severely dry skin; and only requires a small amount to see great results.  It’s so good, you’ll even find it in our soaps!

Other Unique Uses

Shea butter is known for its skin softening effects, but what else can you use it for?

  • Lip balm – great on chapped lips!
  • Foot cream – restores cracked heals.
  • Cuticle balm – softens and moisturizes.
  • Stretch mark cream – aids in the prevention of stretch marks (great during pregnancy).
  • And more!
