AL-GHAR soap is an ancient art in Aleppo

As one of the world’s oldest cities, Aleppo is a unique product of its past. Arab, Turkish, Roman, French and Persian influence has shaped the city’s cultural heritage and unique way of life.

Yet, Aleppo’s most significant contribution may be as the birthplace of soap.

Saop is a Latin word that means ”Animal fat”, hence, the origin of the word soap comes. It is believed that the soap industry in its current form was launched from the Mediterranean region, where it spreads to Europe concurrently with the Crusades. The traditional hand-made method of soap production was passed down throughout the generations, and remained unchanged until the early third century AD, when the soap industry transformed from individual domestic work to a large-scale industry.
