Ton Savon manufactures luxury bath products in the South of France for prestige brands sold in boutiques and department stores in the US and across Europe.
A while back we decided that our soaps were too nice to be used only as gifts and for special occassions so we created 3 house brands that were the same quality as the soaps we make for other prestige brands selling at stores such as Sephora, Bendels, Bergdorf’s and Anthropologie for $10-14 a bar.
We took all the knowledge we’ve accumulated from 20 years of formualating high-end triple milled soaps and bath products and created: La Belle Vie, Savon et Cie, and Certified Organic Pure Provence. The philosophy of these brands is an extention of our company’s philosophy – “luxury formulations with a focus on pure, natural ingredients, healthy for your body and the environment” We left out chemicals, preservatives, and colorants found in many successful brands in the marketplace .
Each brand has it’s own personality and is unique. View our brands for details information.
Savon et Cie is tradition Provençal based on our tried and true original formulation that has solidified our reputation for renown French triple milled soaps. It is 98% natural , vegetable-based, made with palm oil. Enriched with shea butter to leave your skin nourished and moisturized. 10 intoxicating phthalate-free fragrances were created by distinguished perfumers in Grasse, “the perfume capital of the world”. Many of the botanicals used in the fragrances were sourced in the surrounding areas in Provence, France. All of our soaps are triple milled, actually 4x milled to create a long-lasting bar with a luxurious lather.
Savon et Cie soaps are vegan and free of BHT, parabens, phthalates, and gluten (except Oatmeal).
La Belle Vie blends tradition with a contempory touch. Added to our traditional 98% natural , vegetable-based soap, made with palm oil and enriched with shea butter, we have added extracts. The extracts were carefully chosen for their benefits. White Tea extract is rich with anti-oxidants, Calendula extract soothes irritated skin, and nutrient rich milk proteins add nourishment to the skin.
A mix of our most popular french scents and fresh new contempory scents make up an array of 12 delicious phthalate-free fragrances. Also created by our distinguished perfumers in Grasse, France. The botanicals used in the fragrances were sourced in the surrounding areas in Provence, France and exotic places around the world.

1914 translation by H. Rackham
“On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains.”
