History of its handmade manufacture: This wonderful soap originates from the ancient city of ALEPPO, in SYRIA. Its ancestral way of manufacture dates back to more than 2,000 years ago. It is one of the most prestigious soaps in the world, from which all Spanish, Italian and French handmade oils are derived.
The technique of making these soaps was brought to Europe by the Crusades in the 12th century and, despite the passage of time, its recipe has remained unchanged to the present day.
Its secret lies in the use of olive oil, laurel oil, soda from salicorn plants and water. The olive oil, water and soda are mixed in a huge cauldron whose paste is stirred by shovels that men shake for several days. Once the cooking is done, the laurel oil is added. To check the excellence of the paste, the master soap maker examines with his hands its texture and smoothness, then this paste is spread on the ground, cut into rectangular pieces and dried in the Syrian sun for several months.
