150 years of unexpected history...

The start of a great adventure

In 1862, Armand Roger and Charles Gallet, both partners and brothers-in-law, entrepreneurs and visionaries, decided to create Roger & Gallet in the heart of the City of Light, Paris.

Roger & Gallet has invented hundreds of cosmetic products: Soaps with various characteristics (superfine, extra-fine), dental and mouth care, facial care (almond paste for the complexion, beauty vinegars), make-up products for the face (and for the veins), hair treatments with hair lotions and the very first hair gel called "Tenax", treatments to protect the lips with "Rosat pomade" , the ancestor of lip balm, and many others...

"Avant-garde by tradition" was the signature of the House. Through innovative and luxurious products, Roger & Gallet have created a unique and exceptional universe of scents, treatments and fragrances. Today, the brand still draws its inspiration from this heritage.

From Aqua Mirabilis to Eau de Cologne

At the end of the 17th century, there was an extraordinary water called "Aqua Mirabilis", obtained from the distillation of 18 medicinal essences cultivated in the Jardins des Simples. "Aqua Mirabilis" was a remedy that could be drunk and applied to the body. It is from this formula that the original Jean Marie Farina Eau de Cologne was formulated.

Over time this became a daily use body product that was rubbed in to disinfect when bathrooms were not yet prevalent. Finally, thanks to its delicious, sophisticated and very fresh fragrance, this water has become a perfume.

Its iconic bottle called "Emeri flask" is still sealed by hand. Today, Eau de Cologne is the iconic and founding product of Roger & Gallet. Many manufacturers have tried to copy the original Eau de Cologne, but failed to do so.

Round soaps

In 1879, Roger & Gallet created the first round heart-scented soap, which allowed a better grip and remained fragrant until the last use. They are still presented in their original style, and made "in the cauldron". The secret recipe for the soap base is based on ingredients of natural origin: Method described for the first time in 1907 by the Marseille master soap maker Merkien, guaranteeing an ultra-soft soap texture.

Even today, the four essential steps related to this technique are respected, that is to say 80 hours of manufacturing for each part. Authentic Roger & Gallet soaps are always presented in their original format (sealed with a house seal, wrapped in sun-pleated tissue paper, and in elegant boxes), and remains scented until the last use.

Round soap is nomadic. The round soap is suitable for all skin types. Round soap is always made according to the rules of the art! Round soap is ecological and economical: with a 100% vegetable base, it is biodegradable and only 100g of soap are needed for a hundred showers...
