The AL NAJJAR family has been making authentic Aleppo Soap since 1895 in keeping with ancestral artisanal know-how. Aleppo Soap was the first hard soap and has been manufactured for centuries. It is the ancestor of Marseille soap. This know-how is passed down from generation to generation in the family’s soap factory.
Each year from late November to late March, production of the world’s first hard soap starts over again following an unchanged process. The soaps then dry for at least nine months. During this period, the soaps oxidize on the surface and take on a yellow/beige color, whilst the heart of the soap retains the green color of the oils that make it.
Najel's Aleppo Soap is made from virgin olive oil and bay laurel oil. Saponified olive oil is a powerful cleanser which nourishes, protects and softens skin. Bay laurel oil is known for its disinfectant and regenerative properties. The higher its concentration, the more the soap soothes irritated or problem skin (psoriasis, eczema, acne, dermatosis).
Made from traditional 200g Aleppo Soaps, this Najel compressed soap combines the beneficial properties of Aleppo Soap with those of Dead Sea mud.
The Dead Sea, situated between Israel, the West Bank and Jordan, contains over 25% salt compared to 5% in the other seas and oceans of the world. The Dead Sea basin is 412 meters below sea level, making it the lowest point of our planet.
Its high concentration in salt explains why the Dead Sea is home to neither animal nor plant life. However, the mineral salts it contains are an extraordinary source of beneficial resources for the skin and body.
Dead Sea mud is formed from the sediment of the Dead Sea, and settles naturally along its banks. This black mud is revitalizing, purifying, soothing and regenerating. It has been prized since antiquity and is ideal for skin care.
