Naked Aleppo Soap 5% BLO - Najel
All skin types, Face Body & Hair
This soap is obtained by hot process saponification of olive oil and bay laurel oil. These oils give it its many virtues. Saponified olive oil is a potent agent which nourishes, protects and softens skin.
Bay laurel oil is known for its disinfectant and regenerative properties. It perfectly cleanses the skin while nourishing it.
This know-how is passed down from generation to generation in the Al Najjar family’s soap factory in the city of Aleppo in the North of Syria. Najel’s Aleppo soap is made exclusively from olive oil and bay laurel oil, two precious oils which give it its many virtues.
Each year from late November to late March, production of the world’s first hard soap starts over again following an unchanged process. The soaps then dry for at least nine months. During this period, the soaps oxydize on the surface and take on a yellow/beige color, whilst the heart of the soap retains the green color of the oils that make it.

HOW TO USE
"Aleppo soap is recommended for your face, body and hair. Rub the soap on wet skin, wash and rinse with water."
How is Aleppo Soap made?
Aleppo soap is made of olive oil and bay laurel oil which gives it its emerald green colour. Once the paste Is cut, the soap is dried for a minimum of 9 months. During this time, the soap oxidizes at the surfaces and develops a yellow/brown colour. You can visit our blog of full description on how Aleppo soaps are made.
Is Najel Vegan?
Yes! All of Najel products are vegan friendly and 100% cruelty free.
How do I pick the right Aleppo soap for my skin type?
For daily use of Aleppo soap for oily or normal to combination skin, we recommend using a soap with a low percentage of bay laurel oil (BLO). For example, Najel’s 100% Olive Soap, 5% BLO or 12% BLO which makes it suitable to use for the whole family.
An Aleppo soap with a high percentage of bay laurel oil (30% and above) is more suitable for dry, sensitive, and reactive skins.
