Its history

Formulated with olive oil and 20% Laurel berries oil to the load, this is the oldest soap in the world.

Produced since ancient times in Aleppo in northwest Syria, this soap has gradually spread throughout the world due to its beneficial properties. Brought to the West by the Crusaders, its recipe circulated throughout the Mediterranean and is the ancestor of hard soaps, especially Marseille soap. Thanks to its cosmetic and dermatological benefits, Aleppo soap quickly came to be appreciated by nobility before becoming more accessible over the following centuries.

Its properties

Aleppo Soap is a dermo-protective treatment.

This special characteristic comes from the combination of moisturizing and softening olive oil with cleansing and purifying laurel berry oil. The effectiveness of Aleppo Soap is related to the amount of laurel berries oil it contains. With 20% bay laurel oil to the load, Beauterra Aleppo Soap is a mark of efficacy and quality. It is particularly recommended for dermatological problems such as acne and psoriasis.

We answer your questions with total transparency

Does your Aleppo Soap come from Aleppo in Syria?

Unfortunately, no. The political conditions affecting Syria and the city of Aleppo make local production impossible.
Our products are made in France while respecting the original manufacturing process, hot saponification, and the traditional composition : olive oil and laurel berry oil. All without preservatives !

What is the difference between Liquid Marseille Soap and Aleppo Soap?

Both are made in the same cauldrons that master soap-makers tend by hand. The same mixture serves as the base of Marseille soap and Aleppo soap. Olive oil is heated for several days with water and soda or potash. The distinguishing feature of Aleppo soap, laurel berry oil, is added at the end of the cooking process.
