What is it? Inspired by what is thought to be the world’s oldest known soap – Aleppo Soap is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and skin conditioner which can help alleviate skin conditions such as acne, perioral dermatitis and psoriasis.
Notes from the Curator: Did you know? Aleppo soap was traditionally made in Aleppo, Syria by skilled artisans through an entirely hand powered process, using methods and close guarded secret recipes handed down from generation to generation!
Let’s Get Nerdy: In Theresa’s words “I’ve paid homage to these ancestral traditions by hand crafting our rendition using the two original ingredients of traditional Aleppo soap: Olive oil (extra virgin in our case) and Laural Berry fruit oil. Famed for it’s ability to help relieve itching from eczema, acne and psoriasis. Laurel berry oil gives this soap its unique naturally smokey scent. Whilst the exact recipes are closely guarded secrets, it is rumoured that 40% is the highest percentage of Laurel Berry oil used and yields the most premium soap – I have kept to that percentage. We then cure in a dark room for 6 months.”
