Additionally, zero-waste enthusiasts are also interested in ALEPEO soap due to its benefits and plastic-free packaging.

Our ALEPEO Soap is a genuine Aleppo soap originating from the city of Aleppo in Syria, where it has been produced for over 3,000 years. In the 1990s, a French geographer traveler who visited Syria to explore the treasures of Aleppo made an interesting discovery: Aleppo soap. At that time, Aleppo soap was unknown in France and Europe. A new brand was created by Mr. Thaddée de Slizewicz, the geographer, to introduce and distribute the famous Aleppo soap. This marked the beginning of the global history of Aleppo soap. Europeans continued to discover this soap and its benefits, and the number of its enthusiasts continues to grow.

For those who are not yet familiar with this magnificent soap, I invite you to explore the authentic Aleppo soap from the "ALEPEO" brand, available through select distributors in France and Europe, as well as on the online store "".

Traditionally, ALEPEO Aleppo soap is presented in the form of a cubic or rectangular block. The exterior of a well-matured soap (dried for a minimum of 9 months in the open air) is brownish-ochre in color, but the inside retains the color of the oils used in its production, which is greenish. It is typically marked with a manufacturing seal in the Arabic language, allowing for the identification of the maker. In Europe, the soap's packaging should include several indications for traceability, such as a lot number and manufacturing date.

It's important to note that not all soaps made by Aleppo master soap makers are of the same quality. The quality depends on various factors, including:

  • The raw materials and their quality (acidity of oils, impurities and residues, oils other than olive and laurel oils).
  • The soap maker's expertise. Even with the same raw materials, different soap makers can produce soaps of varying qualities.

Aleppo Soap: How to Identify Authenticity

To determine the authenticity of Aleppo soap, follow these steps when you have a bar of Aleppo soap in hand:

Verification of the external appearance:

  1. 1- Color: Authentic Aleppo soap should be brown, with variations in color depending on the percentage of laurel oil used. The higher the laurel oil content, the darker the brown color.

  2. 2- Texture: A well-made authentic Aleppo soap should have a smooth and pleasant texture, despite its irregular shape. Avoid soaps that feel rough and have a white powdery surface.

  3. 3- Presence of a Seal: An authentic Aleppo soap should have a manufacturing seal, typically in the Arabic language.

  4. 4- Fragrance: Traditional and authentic Aleppo soap (approximately 200g) should not be scented. Its natural fragrance is derived from the laurel oil.

An informed Aleppo resident, knowledgeable about Aleppo soap, follows these steps when looking to purchase high-quality and genuine Aleppo soap:

  1. 1- Ask the seller to cut a piece from the soap (vendors often have pre-cut pieces from each batch).

  2. 2- Place the two cut pieces of soap under the nose to smell the presence of laurel oil. Authentic Aleppo soap made with laurel oil should have a distinct and strong scent. The higher the percentage of laurel oil, the more pronounced the smell. It's also important to check for the absence of palm oil odor.

  3. 3- Check the name of the soap maker. If the soap maker's name is well-known for producing excellent soap, an informed Aleppo resident is likely to be convinced that it's a good Aleppo soap suitable for use in their daily routine.

The manufacturing seal typically includes stars, and the number of stars may vary based on the percentage of laurel oil. However, the number of stars is not a determining factor for the quality and percentage of laurel oil in the soap.
