Syria is home to one of the finest olive oil soap factories in the world. In fact, Aleppo is a popular type of handmade soap that is created from only three ingredients. This all-natural soap is heralded for leaving skin clean and soft. The soap also replenishes vital skin pores, while keeping the epidermis looking vibrant and shiny.
Aleppo or olive oil soap is comprised of three natural ingredients. This includes laurel oil (12%), soda (lyle and water), and of course olive oil (82%). Aleppo is also considered to be the first soap ever made-with recipes dating back to 2400 BC.
While Syria continues to be a battlefront for various military and political factions-its worldwide soap production and distribution continues to soar. In fact, Aleppo soap is made from the finest olives and laurel berries that blanket Northern Syria and Southeast Turkey.
Despite the ongoing regional civil war-orders for this popular soap continue to come in from all corners of the globe. While production continues, many within the industry are worried that the war will eventually cease production. This will have a dramatic impact on customers, clients, and especially stores that carry all-natural Syrian olive oil soap and skin care products.
