"Savon Blanche Leigh EN VENTE PARTOUT" 8' H. Blanche Leigh was a cosmetics company, specializes in soaps, founded by Madame Blanche Leigh, an English woman. Blanche Leigh’s soap creations were noted in the Pharmaceutical Journal of 1899 for the ground breaking process she used to create and package her soaps. It was a rarity a woman at the time in history not only founded and was the sole operator of her own business, but created and hand made most of the products herself. Madame Blanche Leigh was known for both flawless soaps and packaging, for instead of using rice paper, she used parchment paper to wrap her soaps as to not allow the precious perfumes to escape. Her shop was on Rue De Lorraine in Paris.
