MATERIA Hnos. Was founded in 1957 by six immigrant brothers from Sicily, Italy, who had arrived in our country in 1949. They established a small factory in Mar del Plata, Argentina, where they produced soap and glycerin.
In 1963, we purchased our first 500kg/hour automatic machine in Europe. The innovative system consisted of inserting the soap paste into the machine so that it could go through all the necessary processes.
We produced not only the 400-gram washing soap “Seiseme” was produced, but also the toilet soap “Mar del Plata” made of coconut, glycerin, and resin, which at the end of the '60s, meant a remarkable advance.
