Aleppo soap was the first ever solid soap. The ancestor of Marseille soap, it first came into being over 3000 years ago in Aleppo in the north of Syria.
Made with olive oil and bay laurel berry oil, this pure vegetable soap is made using the traditional saponification process consisting of cooking vegetable oils in cauldrons. The same as for Marseille soap, the soap paste is poured into floor moulds, smoothed and left to dry before it is cut into loaves. Once they have been cut, the loaves of Aleppo soap are stored in the shade and left to dry for at least 9 months before packaging.
The virtues of Aleppo soap have been acclaimed for centuries. The specific nature of the oils used to make it give it its exceptional properties. Bay laurel berry oil is particularly well-known for its purifying, astringent and germ-killing properties. As for olive oil, it moisturises and nourishes.
