Product Description

The History of Aleppo Soap
Produced in the ancient Syrian city of Aleppo, this soap has a 2000 year history. Year after year people have produced it using the same method, neither adding to nor removing anything from the original recipe. Even the Bible mentions it, associating it with renowned olive groves of the Middle East and Mesopotamia. Even earlier we find it mentioned on Babylonian clay tablets. Not for nothing were the wealthy oriental califs among its most enthusiastic devotees. Even Jesus and his disciples probably appreciated this soap. Soap from Aleppo was particularly highly prized after 800 a.d. when it spread throughout the Mediterranean on a wave of Arab expansion, reaching continental Europe. At Massillia (modern day Marseille) local people made their own version but using olive oil on its own. Aleppo soap is thus generally regarded as the true predecessor of the variety from Provence, not just a close relative - and is of superior quality too. The composition of traditional Aleppo soap includes olive oil, oil of Bay Laurel berries and soda ash (sodium carbonate).[i]
