Our Story

Le Petit Marseillais™, the #1 body wash brand in France, has arrived in America! Founded in sunny Provence, our body care products and scents are inspired by the sun-drenched ingredients that thrive in the warm Mediterranean sun.
How Le Petit Marseillais Started

Our story begins in the sunny harbor of Marseille. It was here that our founder, Bernard Lengellé, walked through a picturesque outdoor market and fell in love with the region’s fragrant artisan soap made with local olive oil.
