"Established in 1887 in Porto, Portugal, the Ach Brito Company is the oldest family owned soap and perfume manufacturer in Portugal. Until the 1960's Ach Brito specialized in producing soaps and perfumes for the wealthiest of Porto's merchant families. The products were made and packaged specifically for certain families. The bath products produced in this factory are still made today, using the same turn of the century methods and techniques."
I was shopping with the Equestrian the other day (shocker), and discovered my favorite Claus Porto soap at a local boutique. If you have never tried this famous Portuguese soap, I highly recommend it both for decorative and actual use. Bars and liquid soap are available and come in the most beautifully covered prints; perfect for a guest room. However, despite its slightly pricey nature don't be hesitant to use it on a daily basis too...it smells incredible and feels so soft against your skin.
