When you find something that works, why change it? We imagine that is why Syrian olive oil soaps are made today just as they were centuries ago.
The soap-making process takes nine months and begins with the harvest of local olives and bay laurel berries in the late fall. The cold-pressed olive oil, water, and lye are heated in a large cauldron for several days. The bay laurel oil is added at the end of the heating process, and the mixture is then poured into large frames on the ground. After the mixture hardens, the soap is cut with wooden rakes and stamped with the artisan's name. Each bar is then stacked and aged from 6 months to a year. The result is an all-natural bar of one of the best soaps in the world!
We love it next to our kitchen sink, in the bath, as a solid shampoo bar, and in the laundry room. It is especially suited for those with sensitive skin, skin issues, or dry skin. It's all-natural ingredients are gentle on infants, elderly, and everyone in between.
The relative percentage of bay laurel oil determines the quality and cost of the soap. This bar contains 40% laurel oil.
Ingredients: Olive oil, bay laurel oil (40%), water and lye.
