Located at the crossroad of several ancient trade routes, Aleppo is one of the world’s oldest cities with Arab, Turkish, Roman, French and Persian influences that has shaped the cultural heritage.
For 4 000 years, Syrian Artisans and Craftsmen have made this natural soap of olive- and laurel oil, and one of the ancient city of Aleppo’s most significant contribution may be as the birthplace of soap. It is also known as ‘Savon D’Alep’, ‘Laurel Soap’ and ‘Ghar Soap’.
The ingredients are mixed in winter, during the harvest season and set to sun-dry for 9 months. During the drying process, the colour of the soap turns from green into beige, while preserving it’s natural antibiotic qualities.
The soap is a pure natural remedy for all skin types, and due to its softening properties of the olive- and laurel oil, it will comfort the most sensitive skin. The laurel oil is an effective cleanser that together with the olive oil helps to nourish and purify face, body and hair. It is an universal product with antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-blushing, calming and smoothing properties. Here you will find the ritual for a Nurturing hair wash with Aleppo Soap.
“Demand quality, not just in the products you buy, but in the life of the person who made it.”
