In September 1945, at the age of 20, Dante Nesti started making soap in his own home in Florence, Italy, with a small 50 litre cauldron. Today, the Nesti Dante factory is one of the most highly regarded facilities in Europe for the manufacturing of soap using the method of soap production with the water boiler. Nesti Dante's products are entirely handmade, adopting a tradition that dates back to when the Medici family reigned during the Italian Renaissance. Every soaps are presented in perfectly wrapped, elegant Florentine paper packaging.
Nesti Dante remains one of only a few companies in the world that continues to use the handicraft method of saponification.
