What is Aleppo soap?

Native Syria, it is the oldest soap in the world. This authentic and natural soap has existed for more than 3000 years! Like Marseille soap, it can be used every day on all parts of the body.

  • on color ranging from beige to brown, but still with a nice green heart when you cut it in half. Its natural fragrance releases a good smell of laurel.
    The color can be much lighter for first pressing Aleppo soaps.

  • And Aleppo soap must complete his maturation by drying for 10 months for good quality.
