The History Of Aleppo Soap
Un savoir-faire artisanal
If the use of soap has been known since Antiquity, it was in the 7th and 8th centuries that soap factories developed in Aleppo.
Aleppo soap is the origin of the first hard soaps in the world. Its original manufacturing process uses local products abundant in this region: olive oil and bay laurel oil. Aleppo soap is only made from vegetable oil.
The production has remained artisanal: transmission of the know-how of saponification from father to son. The artisanal and manual cutting of this soap, its method of drying in turns, sheltered from the sun for a minimum of 9 months, make it a completely authentic soap, with irregular contours, but respectful of your skin and the environment.
Depending on its composition, its degree of drying, and its quality, the color of Aleppo soap can vary from very pale yellow to dark green.
Very gentle, it can be used in daily cleansing for the body as well as the face and hair. At 20% bay laurel oil and beyond, this soap could be considered a care soap, a treating soap.
Its ancestral formula, its artisanal manufacture, the obviousness of its components of local origin and its own qualities of use have made the history of this soap.
