Terre de Sommieres was discovered in the 19th century close to the village of Sommieres near Montpellier in the south of France. It was initially used by fullers and drapers to degrease wool by absorbing fats. Nowadays, it is quarried in the Mediterranean Basin, particularly in Morocco where it is known as Fez soap.
Very low carbon indices (57g of CO2 per 400g tube dispenser). Harmless to both humans and the environment.

The infamous dry cleaning agent perchloroethylene (perc) is often found in carpet cleaners, as well as naphtalene, a solvent linked to red blood cell damage. Beyond the potential cancer-causing risks of both perc and naphthalene, many people report dizziness, nausea, and irritation from the fumes. Time to rid your home of these nasties!
Terre de Sommieres clay is not treated or refined, is super-absorbent and far more economical.
