About Théophile Berthon 1867

The history of Théophile Berthon dates back to the second half of the 19th century when a factory producing oils and soaps was established in the Provence region of France, primarily utilizing olive oil as a key ingredient. The Provence region, rich in olive groves, naturally led its inhabitants to engage in the extraction, processing, and trade of olive oil, using it for the production of various household and cosmetic products. By the late 19th century, the most popular item that gained immense popularity was the soap cube made from pure olive oil, free of preservatives. Today, Théophile Berthon continues to manufacture this simple yet fantastically effective product.
