Unwrapped Organic Shampoo and Body Bar

$14.50

Clear

This unique soap is handmade from organic olive oil with added laurel berry oil from the Laurus nobili or bay tree. It is an especially soft, gentle soap, 100% natural, biodegradable and chemical free suited to every skin type, even for babies.

A pure and gentle soap, based on organic olive and laurel oils, which is wonderfully kind to the skin and hair. Kind to the environment too – no preservatives, not tested on animals, no plastic, and no wrapping so no waste.

Suitable for all skin and hair types with a nourishing and moisturising natural formula, this soap comes with a fascinating history.

The Palestinian city of Nablus and the Syrian city of Aleppo have been centres of soap making for more than 2000 years. Nablus became known for its pure olive oil soap, but the soap-makers of Aleppo developed the famous the famed “Savon d’Alep” made from olive oil, laurel berry oil (zeit ghar), water and lye. Bay trees (scientific name Laurus nobilis) need to be at least 10 years old before they flower and produce the berries containing the special oil for this soap. As it is produced only from natural oils, Aleppo soap is also biodegradable. This Aleppo-style soap is also made in Nablus, Palestine, but its English name reminds us that its recipe originated in Aleppo.

Nablus Soap is certified by ECOCERT as Natural & Organic.

Size: 180-200g – weights may vary slightly as the soap is hand-cut
