Welcome to Ancestral French Soap! We started making soaps years ago to fund a circus summer camp for one of our daughters. She made the soaps with me and sold them at holiday fairs and farmers' markets. A couple of years later, she passed it on to my youngest daughter, who was very happy to take over the soap-making activities.

We uprooted from New York and moved to Maine in 2015. In addition to keeping the business, we decided to bring it to the next level of integrity and purity. We researched a lot about soap making and took a special interest in recipes from the Mediterranean. We knew we wanted to use only 100% olive oil as our base because using organic and native ingredients brings us closer to the old recipes we found. These straightforward recipes made hearts joy-jump and fit our values of respecting the planet while pursuing holistic health.
