Truly a Multi-Talent. Soap for Personal Care and Household Cleaning.
Just calling it curd soap does not do it justice, because quality-wise, it is far superior to base soaps, which are usually made from low-quality fats. Aleppo soap, known in Arabic as “sapun ghar”, or “laurel oil soap” is made from the best olive oil and enriched with the oil from laurel berries and leaves. It is used as a results-producing basic curd soap, and to excellent effect as a fine soap for personal care. Because the breakage of a cake of soap does not affect the cleaning properties of the soap, we offer Aleppo soap in loose pieces and in an environmentally friendly, 1 kg paper bag for those who want to take advantage of its many useful applications.
The nourishing properties of the soap for the body and complexion, especially for sensitive skin types, are well known. It can also be used as shampoo, especially for dry or damaged hair, as well as a shaving soap. Less well known (at least in our latitudes) is that Aleppo soap can take care of the laundry too. Grated and dissolved in hot water, it is an additive-free detergent substitute for any fabric. Linen regains its volume when washed with Aleppo soap, and its sheen and smoothness is enhanced. The soap can be used to pre-treat stains or greasy shirt collars by merely moistening the bar and rubbing it over the affected areas. If simply left in the closet, Aleppo soap keeps moths away from clothes. It can also be used diluted with water and sprayed on plants to deter aphids. Its other uses are discussed in books on simple home remedies, and you are likely to discover some of your own as you go along. This Aleppo soap comes from the only factory within the city limits of Aleppo still producing soap.
