Aleppo Soap refers to savon d’Alep, or laurel soap, or Syrian soap. It was said to be originated from Southwest Asia Levant region (around Lebanon, Israel, Syria, etc.) then moved into Europe. It was usually done by hot processing 100% olive oil then infused with laurel berry oil at the end before molding into it’s final shape. Aleppo soap needs a long curing time, from 6 months to a year, like ageing a good red wine, the older the better. It usually starts with a natural green colour and ages into more rustic, olive-khaki shade. The percentage of laurel berry oil used in the soap can range from 2-40%.
