Saponificio Bignoli began in 1945, when Carlo decided to embark on his own adventure and manufactured his first batch of handmade laundry soap after years of working in a Turin soap factory.
His humble equipment consisted of a big copper pot where he blended his ingredients, and the ground on which the soap was laid out to dry for a few days. After cutting the soap into bars, he loaded them onto his bicycle and sold these precious “white slabs” at local markets and fairs.
Since these early beginnings Saponificio Bignoli are proud to say that their family business has grown and now counts three generations of skilled artisans. Respect for tradition and use of the finest ingredients together with a love for quality and well-made things preserves the original character of Saponificio Bignoli products.
