WHAT IS ALEPPO SOAP AND HOW IS IT MADE?

Aleppo soap is the oldest soap in the world. Due to its versatility and qualities, Aleppo soap is also called 'the king of soaps'. As the name suggests, the soap originally comes from the Syrian city of Aleppo. There it has been produced in a traditional way for thousands of years, where the ingredients and the method are still the same! So a real classic. Aleppo soap has cold-pressed olive oil and laurel oil as a base. To make soap from this, lye is used (sodium hydroxide). Lye ensures that the soap gets its solid shape. The lye and the oil are heated in such a way that they harden and 'saponify'. The soap is then poured into blocks. Each block is printed with the logo of the soap maker, for example Najel. Because aleppo soap is so popular, liquid soap and aleppo soap shampoo are now also being made. This is the same soap and just as mild, but liquid!

WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS OF ALEPPO SOAP?

Aleppo soap always contains olive oil and bay berry oil in the base. The olive oil nourishes, while the bay berry oil has a cleansing effect. The more laurel oil the aleppo soap contains, the more it will clean. People with oily skin benefit from a higher percentage of laurel oil in the soap. Other ingredients you may find in aleppo soap are:

These ingredients provide fragrance and extra care. Aleppo soap with jasmine can also be found under the name aleppo soap tadé.

ALEPPO SOAP: LIQUID OR SOLID?

Whether you buy liquid or solid Aleppo soap largely depends on your own preference. The two have the same basic ingredients. An advantage of the liquid aleppo soap is that you can easily dose it. In addition, you do not need a separate place or soap dish. The solid aleppo soap also has advantages. This way you can easily take the solid soap with you on a trip, where you can actually use it for anything: as a shower product, as a toothpaste and as a shaving soap. You can even wash your clothes with it! Incidentally, it is also possible to liquefy solid Aleppo soap: for this you grate pieces of the solid soap, which you dissolve in boiling water.

HOW DOES ALEPPO SOAP WITH LAUREL WORK FOR YOUR SKIN?

Aleppo soap has olive oil and bay berry oil as a base. The olive oil nourishes your skin, while the bay berry oil counteracts and soothes impurities. The higher the percentage of laurel oil, the stronger the soap cleans. It is best for someone with dry or sensitive skin to shower with a low percentage of laurel (0-5%). Someone with oily skin will benefit from a higher percentage of bay berry oil, such as aleppo soap 20% or aleppo soap 40%. You can use the soap in different ways for your skin, with use in the shower or bath being the best known. You can also use the soap in these ways:

  • Shaving soap for men and women
  • Thorough cleaning of your face
  • Removing paint on the skin

Do you have sensitive skin? Try an unscented aleppo soap first.

HOW TO CLEAN YOUR FACE WITH ALEPPO SOAP?

You can use aleppo soap to thoroughly cleanse your face. You will notice that your skin feels fresh and soft after cleansing with aleppo soap. Do you have a piece of solid aleppo soap? Then it is best to rub your bar of soap with a damp cotton pad. A small amount is enough for your face. Aleppo soap thoroughly removes all your make-up and pollution from the outside. Keep in mind that aleppo soap has the properties of a soap: it cleans thoroughly and has a degreasing effect. Daily use is therefore a bit too much for many skin types. Also note that soap can sting your eyes. It is better to use a different product to remove eye make-up.

WHY IS ALEPPO SOAP GOOD FOR YOUR HAIR?

Because aleppo soap contains no sulfates, you can safely wash your hair with it. Sulfates ensure that shower and hair products foam nicely.

Unfortunately, they can also cause your scalp to dry out and your hair to lose its natural protective layer. Aleppo soap does not contain any chemical additives, but cleans with laurel oil and other natural ingredients. The experience of aleppo soap enthusiasts is that pure aleppo soap cleans strongly, but can also make your hair a bit dry or rough. The stiff feeling disappears as soon as your hair dries. With conditioner or apple cider vinegar you can already make your hair softer. Keep in mind that cleaning with a soap is less suitable for some hair types. If you prefer a milder product, it is better to choose an aleppo soap shampoo. This has the same benefits for your hair as the soap (sulfate-free, olive oil), but is milder and makes your hair easier to comb.

ALEPPO SOAP FOR YOUR BEARD: HOW TO USE IT

You can use aleppo soap in two ways for your beard: as a beard - and face wash and as a shaving foam! The longer your beard gets, the more care it needs. Aleppo soap cleans your beard and face thoroughly, without aggressive ingredients. Important, because on the skin under your beard, impurities can arise more easily as the hair grows longer. You can also use aleppo soap as a shaving cream: apply some aleppo soap with your shaving brush and shave. After shaving, rinse your skin as usual.

HOW CAN ALEPPO SOAP REMOVE STAINS?

Did you know that you can remove stains with aleppo soap? For this you need the pure, 100% olive oil aleppo soap. Dampen the textile with lukewarm water and rub it with the soap. Let the soap soak in for fifteen minutes, or for stubborn stains, several hours. Then rinse your garment or put it in the washing machine as usual. This is a handy solution if you don't like chemical stain removers, or if you're traveling. Nice to know: you can also use aleppo soap to gently remove paint residue on your skin!
