Nesti Dante soaps (saponi) are prepared respecting the age-old tradition of the true Italian 'Saponeria' - the cauldron method. Nesti Dante remains one of only a few companies in the world that continue to use the handicraft method of saponification. Today, Nesti Dante is one of the few companies in the world which, although on an industrial scale, still produces soap with artisanal methods, carrying out the complete cycle of production. It strictly follows the traditional process of boiling in a cauldron, which takes several days and the continual assistance, including manual, of master soapmakers and perfumers who can monitor the various phases of the process (saponification, washing, liquidation, decantation and extraction from special vacuum driers). This recipe for success is completed by the exquisite refinement of the packaging with attention paid to even the tiniest detail and the use of selected raw materials of very high quality and without synthetic surfactants, which are responsible for allergies and irritation of the skin, hair and eyes. Over half a century of coherent commitment, illuminated by the objectives of excellence of its founder: “We will always work not to be the biggest, but to be the best.”

Brand Info

In September 1945, at the age of twenty, Dante Nesti started making soap in his own home in Florence with a small 50- liter cauldron. Today, the Nesti Dante brand is world-known for their traditional "cauldron style" production of quality soaps with beautiful packaging.

Soap was first used tens of centuries ago, but it was in Florence, when the Medici Family was in power, that soap-making became a real profession; the corporation of Master Soapmakers was formed under the noble Art of Physicians and Pharmacists, with an alley in the heart of Florence still bearing the name of the Via dei Saponai (Soapmaker’s street).
