Aleppo soap is a product loved for its naturally nourishing qualities and is among the best bar soap for sensitive skin. Authentically made in Aleppo, Syria, it dates back to the 8th century A.D.
Aleppo soap is a hard bar of soap made with olive oil and lye like a Castile soap, but Aleppo soap is made with an extra-special ingredient that takes it to another level: oil of bay laurel. This precious oil, derived from laurel trees (like bay leaves), acts as a gentle cleanser and is well-tolerated by even the most sensitive skin.
Aleppo soap is the original 'all-in-one' product and is perfect for all skin types, including skin prone to dermatitis and other itchy, inflammatory skin conditions. It can be used to wash the face, body and hair, and lathered to create a natural shaving cream.
Aleppo soap is so gentle it can even be used on babies’ skin, making it a family-friendly choice.
Here are just some of the many skincare benefits of Aleppo soap:
- Cleanses and purifies without stripping the skin’s natural essential oils.
- The olive oil hydrates, moisturizes and nourishes dry, flaky skin.
- Oil of bay laurel can help manage skin problems like eczema, dermatitis and acne.
- Together, the properties of olive oil and bay laurel oil help calm redness, irritation and inflammation.
- Has antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.
- Dermatologists often recommend that this soap is suitable for the most sensitive or baby skin.
This soap can be used even after years of curing! The outside will slightly darken to a golden hue as it ages and it maintains its skin rejuvenating properties even after long periods of time. It also lasts a long time as it is a dense, hard bar that lathers well and cleans efficiently with little effort.
To allow your bar of Aleppo soap to last it’s longest, store in a dry place when not using to keep moisture at bay.
