HOW IT STARTED...

Azur started as an artisan soap factory from Groningen. Inspired by the beautiful Côte d'Azur, with a passion for both the skin and the environment, Azur was established, founded by Eline. As a young girl, she was intrigued by the deep purple, fragrant lavender fields, the beautiful azure Mediterranean, the sunflower fields, all the different shades of green, the beautiful natural scents, and of course the 'savonneries'. Years later she decided to make her own cosmetics, including the nourishing Azur soaps. Unique to our soaps is that a certain percentage of nourishing oils, not participates in the chemical reaction. This results in a nourishing, feeding soap. It does not dry out your skin!

Where science and art meet

All our soaps are still made according to Eline's recipes and designs. In our own atelier in Groningen we make our products in a traditional way with  lots of love. Everything is done by ourselves:from production planning to purchasing raw materials. We also do everything by hand. For example weighing ingredients, pouring, cutting and packing the soap. Soapmaking is our passion. Each soap has specific characteristics and a unique appearance. Every soap is a unique piece of art!

Our soap workshop is located in Groningen. Would you like to get acquainted or are you curious about how things are going in our kitchen?

The process of making soap


Making soap is a chemical reaction. Vegetable oils, such as shea butter and sweet almond oil, react with a strong base (high pH, opposite of an acid). This creates a new chemical compound: the soap molecule. The reaction continues, creating a sort of custard-like substance. Now comes the creative part!


We enrich the 'soap batter' with beautiful colours and scents. Fragrances are unique combinations of pure essential oils. Scents come from dried plants and clay. By pouring the soap in different ways, we create our unique designs. We let the soap batter harden in the moulds, while the chemical reaction continues even further. After 24 hours we cut the soap into the familiar blocks. We then let these blocks dry for at least 4-6 weeks. Water, present in the soap, evaporates, causing the soap to ripen and become nice and hard, so that it lasts extra long. This is an essential step to ensure the quality of the soap. Truly a craft!
