Savon d'Alep has a rich history that goes back to ancient times. It gets its name from the city of Aleppo, Syria where the ancient Soap Masters engaged in the art of soap making. Our Soap Master was forced to leave Syria due to the tragic war. The making of traditional big block Aleppo soap takes 9 months to complete, due to the drying time. Savon d'Alep improves with age and whilst the exterior of the soap lightens into a golden tan color, the inside remains green. The older it gets, the longer it lasts when being used. This skin loving soap is made with an ancient formula that consists of only 4 ingredients (NO parabans, NO preservatives): Olive Oil, Laurel Bay Oil, Lye and Water (fragrance used only in our Lavender soap and our Amber & Musk soap).
