Inspired by what is thought to be the world's oldest known hard soap - Aleppo Soap. With medieval origins, authentic Aleppo Soap is traditionally made in Syria by skilled artisans through an entirely hand powered process, using methods and closely guarded secret ancestral recipes handed down from generation to generation.

I've paid homage to these ancestral traditions by hand crafting our rendition using the two original ingredients of traditional Aleppo soap: Olive oil (extra virgin in our case) and Laurel Berry fruit oil. Famed for it's ability to help relieve itching from eczema, acne and psoriasis. Laurel berry oil gives this soap its unique naturally smoky scent. Whilst the exact recipes are closely guarded secrets, it is rumoured that 40% is the highest percentage of Laurel Berry oil used and yields the most premium soap - I have kept to that percentage. We then cure in a dark room for 6 months.

History

Authentic Aleppo soap from Syria is made through an entirely different process and should contain a registration number stamped into it. Our soap bar is a cold processed soap inspired by the original methods. We do not make any claims to this being traditionally made Aleppo Soap and are grateful to the masters of the past for their crafts.
