Nesti Dante Horto Botanico Artichoke Soap


Nesti Dante soaps have been crafted with love and care in Florence using the finest, sustainably sourced ingredients since 1947. I've used them ever since I bought my first home, way back when. Their substantial size makes them perfect for cleaning dirty hands after a day in the garden.

The Horto Botanico range celebrates the unique properties of six familiar garden vegetables, wonderful on their own or gifted as a set. Every bar is embossed with Nesti Dante’s logo and wrapped in recyclable paper. 

Artichoke is rich in Vitamin C which is known for repairing damaged skin cells and evening its tone. The fragrance is warm, comforting and slightly sweet.

Nesti Dante

One sunny morning just after the Second World War, Dante Nesti fell from his bicycle in the cobbled streets of Florence, scraping his knees. A kindly butcher gave him some leftover pieces of fat, telling him that if he mixed it with soda, he could make soap to clean his wounds. Dante got back on his bicycle and went straight to the hardware store to buy more supplies. Using his mother's copper basin he made soap for his friends and family to try. By 1947 he'd bought some land and founded his business. 

Today, the Nesti Dante factory is one of Europe's most highly regarded soap manufacturing facilities, using the water boiler method of production. The company is run by the second and third generations of Dante's family.
