Aleppo Soap and its history

The Aleppo soap is the first solid, authentic soap to be created in the world and is renowned for its remarkable qualities and historical background.

Aleppo soap is considered one of the purest soaps ever made, created exclusively with the most natural ingredients. This precious soap, made from olive and laurel bay oil, is luxurious, mild and gentle with incredible cleansing and moisturising properties. It’s ideal for all skin types, including sensitive skins. These soaps are still being handcrafted in the traditional way and used in authentic Hammam and spas.

The Aleppo soap that I offer has been distributed by a family run cooperative that has been producing this soap for 400 years and the soap itself has been made in the area for approximately 2000 years. The soap is made from 100% natural ingredients and does not contain any perfume, colourings or preservatives. It is made from olive and laurel (bay leaf) oil.The percentage of the laurel oil determines its use and value.

 

Benefits

The soap is 100% natural made from olive and laurel oil. As well as being moisturising and softening, the pure oils also cleanse the skin. They can be used on all skin types and is particularly good for dry and delicate skin. It has a creamy lather that thoroughly cleanses without drying out the skin, making it safe for babies and children as well as adults. It can also be used for shaving and has effective antibacterial and anti inflammatory properties, making it ideal for dry skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and rosacea. If you do suffer with any of these skin conditions we would recommend Aleppo soap containing 35%-50% laurel oil as this has shown to be more effective. It can be used daily on the face, body and hair.
