Aleppo Soap originated in the city of Aleppo. The soap was made for 1000's of years and handed down generation after generation. The city is known for its soap.
Here in the states there are some soap makers that attempt to use the lovely green Laurel Berry Oil that makes Aleppo Soap special. None here in the states can create the authentic of course, but we do try to bring you something comparable.

The name as this one states is 30%, that is simply telling the reader this one contains 30% Laurel Berry Oil. The rest of the oil is always Olive Oil. So the recipe for this soap is 70% Olive Oil, 30% Laurel Berry Oil.
Laurel Berry oil has its own unique scent. Its lovely green is also what gives this bar its color. No added scents or colors.
Laurel Berry oil cost nearly $25 a pound. Where as most bulk oils cost anywhere from $2-$4 a lb. This along with the long necessary cure of this soap, makes this soap a luxury soap.
