Christophe Fargier is the founder of Oppidum. For a long time he worked as a sales manager in a consulting company, but at the end of 2018 he quit his corporate job in order to concentrate completely Oppidum and concentrate on soap making. Like many others, Christophe got problems with his skin a few years ago and then started making his own soaps in his kitchen. What began as a personal hobby has now become his calling. In southwest France, near Toulouse, Christophe and his partner have their manufacture in the midst of nature Oppidum Workshop set up.
Christophe: We focus on people who want to switch to natural skin care, people who take a "slow cosmetics" approach. Our soaps have received both “Slow Cosmetics” and “Cosmos Organic” certification. In our Oppidum Workshop Manufaktur, we produce soaps by hand with the greatest care and according to the old rules of art. We offer skin care expertise based on natural and organically grown ingredients. Excluding water, our soaps consist almost exclusively of organically grown ingredients! In addition to the quality and naturalness, the fine foam and fragrance are particularly important to us. The olfactory dimension of our soaps should inspire and combine care with pure pleasure.
