Why Claus Porto Soap Was Included In Oprah’s Favorite Things

When Oprah Winfrey started featuring her favorite things on her now-defunct television show, all of America and the far reaches of her network made sure to stay tuned. Oprah is known as one of the world’s most influential people, and if a product makes it to her list of favorite things, then it’s surely of great quality. From sandwiches to brownies, to cars and gadgets, and to personal hygiene products, Lady O makes sure to share them with her audience so they, too, can see and experience for themselves the superior quality in products and services that mostly people of considerable wealth are regularly exposed to.

In 2007, Oprah included Claus Porto Soap in her Favorite Things Episode. The ones she featured on her show are the jumbo Claus Porto soaps which she described as gorgeous, magnificently scented bathing essentials that not only make bathing more enjoyable but make awesome hostess gifts as well – a great alternative to sweet potato pie, claimed Oprah.


These soaps are definitely high-end items, but for their quality, every person who believes that “bathing is a hobby” will find each one of the 17 variants a great investment for an activity he or she immensely enjoys. Claus Porto Bath Soaps are hand-made, 100% natural shea butter- and 100% vegetable-based soaps from Portugal. They are milled seven times to ensure no cracking or breaking, and the scent infused into each soap lasts until the very end of the bar. These luxurious all-natural soaps have been made in the same traditional way for almost 123 years.

The 17 delightful scents are Water Lily “Madrigal,” Brise Marine “Cerina,” Iris Lavender “Royal,” Paradise-Rose “Rozan,” Lime-Basil “Deco,” Sandalwood Pear “Parada,” Citron Verbena “Banho,” Red Poppy “Favorito,” Sandalwood “Argus,” Honeysuckle “Ilyia,” Wild Pansy “Condessa,” Almond “Alface,” Mimosa “Lysia,” Tuberose Acacia “Voga,” Morning Glory “Lize,” and Melon “Melodia.” They are all greatly refreshing and leave the skin smelling absolutely divine throughout the day. All of these soaps come in attractive colors and impressive packaging that reflect the old-world aesthetics of the Portuguese brand.

Aside from the 350 gram hard soaps, the brand also offers other luxurious body essentials that can make personal hygiene a more gratifying experience. Claus Porto also has liquid soaps, body washes and moisturizers. Similar to the hard soaps, these products also have classic and colorful packaging that can instantly upgrade the look of any bathroom.


Everybody knows that Oprah only enjoys the finest things in life — items with impressive history and fantastic quality; it’s no wonder the Claus Porto jumbo soap made it to her 2007’s list of favorite things.
