Soap history

The Palestinian city of Nablus and the Syrian city of Aleppo have been centres of soap making for more than 2000 years. Nablus became known for its pure olive oil soap, but the soap-makers of Aleppo developed the famous the famed “Savon d’Alep” made from olive oil, laurel berry oil (zeit ghar), water and lye. Bay trees (scientific name Laurus nobilis) need to be at least 10 years old before they flower and produce the berries containing the special oil for this soap. As it is produced only from natural oils, Aleppo soap is also biodegradable. This Aleppo-style soap is also made in Nablus, Palestine, but its English name reminds us that its recipe originated in Aleppo.
