This Is The Fascinating Process Behind Syria's Ancient Olive Oil Soap
February 2, 2016
82 percent olive oil, 12 percent laurel oil and soda. These are the only three ingredients in the world's oldest soap.
Aleppo soap has been the same for centuries beyond the walls of the historic citadel of Aleppo, in Northern Syria. Many consider it to be the first soap ever made.
Olive oil soap is renowned for its beneficial effects on the skin. The soap moisturizes and adapts to all skin types, from dry to delicate because it regulates the production of sebum. It is even used for hair care.
And this is what it means when it says "handcrafted."
