Posted Sep 13 2008 11:48pm
After watching today's Oprah's Favorite things, I was very happy and pleased to see the consciousness and marketing of green friendly, organic and natural products make the list this year.
These all-natural, bath-sized shea butter bars distributed by Lafco New York are a labor of love. They have been created by the Claus Porto's family-run factory in Portugal for the past 117 years. The jumbo-sized soaps appeal to the senses with beautiful wrappers and 17 magnificent scents, from honeysuckle to grapefruit fig. "They make great hostess gifts," Oprah says.
The oldest and most prestigious soap making factory in Porto, Portugal, CLAUS PORTO was founded in 1887 by two world renowned chemists: Ferdinand Claus and Georges Schwedder. Together they created the base for what was to become one of the most important soap making factories ever. The factory today is still family owned and run by the great grandson of Achilles de Brito. At this 117 year old company, the family continues with the great soap making traditions that were a matter of honor for the original founders, containing the highest quality ingredients including the shea butter they are very longlasting and aromatic with a high concentration of fragranced and essential oils.
All Claus Porto Products are Not Tested on Animals.
