Cubes weigh approx 6-7oz

History and Benefits

The Aleppo soap is the first hard, authentic soap to be created in the world. It is famous for its remarkable qualities and historical background. The production methods used to create this soap have been preserved to this day by Aleppian master soap makers. Since the 8th century families have been producing Aleppo soap in small scale and using the same techniques which has maintained this 13 century old tradition.
Aleppo soap is considered one of the purest soaps ever made, created exclusively with the most natural ingredients. It is made of olive oil, laurel bay oil, sodium hydroxide and water. In some cases some other natural ingredients are added such as honey, pure essential oils, red clay, dead sea salts and argon oil.
Aleppo soap is boiled with olive oil and laurel oil. The quantity of both oils used may vary from one soap bar to the other. Usually olive oil is between 60-98% while laurel is between 2-40%. The soap which has the most amount of laurel oil in it is considered to be the most valuable and it has the most costly production. Aleppo soap doesn’t contain any artificial colorings (its color is due to the proportion of laurel oil), no artificial fragrances and flavors, parabens, foam establishers, perfumes and no animal fats. This makes the soap the ultimate natural product, with properties that are extremely good for the skin.
Over two thousand years the town of Aleppo in ex-Mesopotamia has preserved this ancient processing method which is the soap’s main secret. The large blocks of soap are made by hand using traditional method, these soaps are cut into blocks and stamped with the mark of the manufacturer. After, the soaps are set out to dry for a period of 6 to 9 months on racks in well aerated arches. During this drying process, the soap gets both hard and its color changes from olive green to a beautiful deep gold. The color the soap acquires depends mostly on the amount of laurel oil the bar has. Color ranges from a pale yellow (small concentration of laurel oil) to a deep brown or golden color (large concentration of laurel oil).
Aleppo soap is so mild, gentle, moisturizing and natural that it can be used on adults, babies, small children and even pets. It will not dry your skin out and once wet it has a luxurious, smooth and creamy feel. After each use your skin will feel refreshed. It is most popular because of its stronger disinfectant, regenerative, purifying properties which help sooth sensitive skin. Anyone who finds themselves suffering from skin allergies, irritated skin or conditions such as general dermatitis like eczema, psoriasis, bacterial dermatitis, acne, herpes, rosacea, it also helps prevent hair loss and it aids in the recovery of skin diseases. It’s recommended for all skin types. Olive oil is very rich in vitamin E and polyphenole, which is a useful anti-oxidant that can help delay the effects of aging while the bay tree oil has antiseptic properties. It tones, stimulates and brightens skin complexion. It is an excellent product that can be used against spots and pimples. It softens and nourishes the skin without causing dryness and irritation.
This product is said to last for months due to its high density and it is also cost effectiveness it can replace shampoo, conditioner, face soap, body soap and shaving cream.There are several types of Aleppo soap products on the market, including solid soaps (in bars, cubes), liquid Aleppo soaps, clay masks, soap flakes (for washing clothing) and sachets for linen.. Normally all of them are imported from Syria. True Aleppo soap is slightly pricey compared to regular bars of soap. In the United States prices range from $8 to $12 approximately.
Manufacturers claim that the advantages linked to the usage of Aleppo soap are endless. When used on the face and body, the soap will clean the skin deeply while it eliminates the peeled cornea layer, the sebum and sweat (which is the main cause of a tarnished complexion), dust and other micro-bodies of the environment. It can also be used as an excellent make-up remover. Using Aleppo soap will aid in preventing infection. Also, the lack of artificial coloring or other chemical additives is the reliable guarantee from allergies or other attacks that may harm the skin if rubbed by an industrial soap.
Some Dermatologists advise to use Aleppo soap to eliminate the hydro lipid, sebum excess from the skin. In the case of people with sensitive skin, it is recommended to use Aleppo Soap Flakes to wash linens, baby clothes even lingerie; any garment that may come in contact with the skin. Aleppo soap has a forgotten quality in the Western world, but known in the Eastern world, which is an effective way to eliminate clothes moths in the closet.

1) However this adds all your items together.
2)Your shipping will probably be listed as markedly higher as you will be charged the weight of shipping each item individually, the cost of packaging materials, and delivery to post office as they will not come to the studio for 1st class parcels.
3) You will have to wait approximately 1 week for a refund of overages of actual shipping costs.

FAQs

They can be prepped or Raw it's up to you. The listing you have selected is for touch and see samples. They range from 0.1 to 0.25 +/- oz so you get to see what they look and feel like. I do this because I have very rare breeds many people have never touched, seen, or heard of.

The larger samples (0.25oz) are the raw so you know how it will wash or scour.

These samples are not usually large enough for most people to spin, some use for felting art though, because they only need small amounts.
